See and touch some common reptiles at “Scales and Tails,” a Family Fun Day at the San Bernardino County Museum on Sunday, August 28 between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.

“Some people love them and some people don’t, but nobody can avoid reptiles,” said Nancy Kirkwood, museum educator. “For this program, we’ll introduce families to common reptiles that live around us, such as lizards and gopher snakes, along with some more exotic creatures that live in the museum’s Exploration Station.”

Volunteers from the Museum Youth Club will assist with activities related to reptiles, talk about their favorite reptiles, and discuss reptiles that slither, walk, dig, and swim.

“Kids can make a snake to take home that their mom will let them keep!” explained Kirkwood. “They can even try to smell like a snake does.”

A $1 materials fee is requested for craft activities in addition to museum admission. The San Bernardino County Museum is at the California Street exit from Interstate 10 in Redlands. General 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. Lunch, snacks, and beverages are available at the museum’s Garden Café from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more information, visit or call (909) 307-2669 ext. 271 / TDD/TTY: (909) 792-1462.
