Free Admission at County Museum
The San Bernardino County Museum invites the public to visit
the museum in Redlands during regular museum hours with no admission
fee on Sunday, October 3. Free admission is sponsored by Larry
Wolff and Associates.
Family Fun is scheduled on that Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
“Keeping Time the Ancient Way” will answer the question
of how people told time before watches and digital clocks. Members
of the Museum Youth Club will help participants learn about telling
time using the ancient methods, including how to make water clocks
and sun dials. A $1 materials fee is requested for craft activities.
While at the museum, visitors can also see three special exhibits:
“Worth a Thousand Words” that highlights photographic
images from the Sun-Telegram and Redlands Daily Facts newspaper
negative collections dating back a half-century; “Signs
in the Designs,” blue and white embroideries from China;
and the Fine Arts Institute Annual Open exhibition of paintings,
photography, and sculpture. 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).
