County Museum Open on Memorial Day Monday

The San Bernardino County Museum will be open on Monday, May 31 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Visitors can see a variety of special and permanent exhibits about the cultural and natural history of inland Southern California and the Southwest, and can enjoy "Star Light, Star Bright" family activities focused on astronomy.

Do stars really twinkle? How far away are they? Visitors can explore the stars in the museum's inflatable StarLab planetarium. The Museum Youth Club will lead hands-on astronomy activities after each show. The one-hour programs start at 11:00 a.m., noon, 1:00, 2:00, and 3:00 p.m. The cost for a StarLab show and activities is $1 per person in addition to museum admission.

Museum visitors will also enjoy the museum's permanent galleries and see several special exhibits: "Beauty for the Hand and Eye," featuring Guatemalan textile techniques; "UnEarthed! fossils in the museum collections;" "Outdoor Adventures in San Bernardino County," a display of photographs from the museum archives; and "Native American Traditions: Hopi Katsinas" sponsored in part by the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians.
