Welcome to Building Sustainable Museums, a site dedicated to providing information surrounding the state of two of our beloved local museums. Recent affiliation talks between The Discovery Center of the Southern Tier and the Roberson Museum and Science Center have prompted some questions from the Binghamton community. And that’s great!
We created this page to make sure everyone had a place to ask questions, receive answers, and find more information in one dedicated space.
The Discovery Center and Roberson are currently in the process of creating a shared vision for a potential affiliation and an agreement to continue to move forward with discussions.
Building Sustainable Museums was created with the mission of offering opportunities for community engagement.
The Discovery Center of the Southern Tier and the Roberson Museum and Science Center will be answering submissions from the public about the process and providing updates on the status of the conversations.
We are here to serve the community, and both organizations are working to build sustainable community centers. Both Roberson and The Discovery Center share missions of education, which is why we want to enable you to request and receive all the information relating to conversations surrounding the future of museums in Binghamton, NY.
