“Going East” Museum Family Fun Day

Families are invited to “go east” at a Family Fun Day at the San Bernardino County Museum on Sunday, September 12 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The program, organized by the Museum Youth Club and the museum’s education division, is free with museum admission. Each craft activity is $1 each per person to cover the cost of materials.

“We chose the theme of this Family Fun Day to complement our new exhibit, ‘Signs in the Designs’,” explained Nancy Kirkwood, Museum Youth Club coordinator. “The exhibit looks closely at blue and white embroideries from China and explores the meaning of the patterns used on the pieces. We’ll be working with symbols and colors during the Family Fun Day, as well.”

Participants in the activities will hear the story behind the famous Blue Willow plate pattern. They will also have the opportunity to create their own “blue willow” plate, and can construct a paper lantern decorated with traditional Chinese symbols. The new exhibit, free with general admission, will inspire visitors to pick out designs and symbols used more than a century ago by Chinese artists.

The San Bernardino County Museum is at the California Street exit from Interstate 10 in Redlands. Admission is $6 (adult), $5 (senior or student) and $4 (child aged 5 to 12). Children under 5 and Museum Association members are admitted free. Parking is free, and the facility is handicapped-accessible. For more information, visit or call (909) 307-2669 / TDD/TTY: (909) 792-1462.
