County of San Bernardino


The History Division studies and interprets the history of San Bernardino County and the southwestern United States from first non-native contact onwards. The division maintains collections of thousands of archival and three-dimensional artifacts at the main museum and historic branch museums. It is responsible for the preservation and conservation of artifacts in these collections, as well as related research and interpretation.

Major collections include 19th century household furnishings, artifacts related to occupations such as lumbering, woodworking, citrus, transportation, and mining, and special collections of textiles and costumes, plus extensive archival photographic and documentary holdings. Archival material and artifacts are found in the main museum on exhibit and in storage and at the branch museum sites. We change artifacts on display through different exhibits in the main museum and branch sites. Our artifacts in collections storage are also available, by appointment, for researchers to examine. Please see our Collections Access Request Form for more information.
