Museum Open Columbus Day Monday

The San Bernardino County Museum will also be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Columbus Monday, October 11.

The museum tradition of being open on holiday Mondays started at the request of visitors, many of whom enjoy museum visits on days when the whole family has free time together.

While at the museum, visitors can see three special exhibits. “Worth a Thousand Words” features photographic images from the Sun-Telegram and Redlands Daily Facts newspaper negative collections dating back a half-century. “Signs in the Designs” displays blue and white embroidery from rural China. The Fine Arts Institute’s “Annual Open” shows works of art by Southern California artists: paintings, photographs, and sculpture. Exhibits of specimens and artifacts on three floors of the museum also present local history, anthropology, geology, paleontology, and biological sciences in a regional context.

The San Bernardino County Museum is at the California Street exit from Interstate 10 in Redlands. The museum is open Tuesdays through Sundays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. General admission is $6 (adult), $5 (student or senior), and $4 (child aged 5 to 12). Children under five and Museum Association members are admitted free, and everyone will be admitted free on Sunday, September 5. Parking is free, and the facility is handicapped-accessible. The museum’s Garden Café will be open for lunch and snacks between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. For more information, visit or call (909) 307-2669 / TDD/TTY: (909) 792-1462.
