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 www.sbcountymuseum.org
