Long Weekend at the County Museum

The San Bernardino County Museum invites the public to visit the museum in Redlands with no admission fee on Sunday, September 5. The museum will also be open on Labor Day Monday, September 6. Usual admission fees apply on the holiday Monday.

“We know that many people, especially those with large families, plan their visits to the museum to coincide with free admission days,” said Museum Director Robert McKernan. “Free admission days are more crowded than usual, but it’s wonderful to see so many people learning about their cultural and natural heritage. Sometimes the crowds make learning even more enjoyable and interactive.”

The museum also continues its tradition of being open on holiday Mondays; it is usually open Tuesdays through Sundays. Holiday Monday hours were instituted at the request of visitors, many of whom enjoy museum visits on days when the whole family has free time together.

“Making the museum as accessible as possible for our visitors, especially families, is very important to us,” continued McKernan. “We’re very proud of our position as the premiere educational attraction for learning about the heritage of inland Southern California and the Southwest, and we will do everything in our power to make our exhibits and programs accessible to everyone.”

While at the museum, visitors can see a special exhibit called “Worth a Thousand Words” that highlights photographic images from the Sun-Telegram and Redlands Daily Facts newspaper negative collections dating back a half-century. Displays of specimens and artifacts on three floors of the museum also present local history, anthropology, geology, paleontology, and biological sciences in 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.
