Preserving Family Treasures

The History Division of the San Bernardino County Museum will hold an archival workshop, “Preserving Family Treasures,” on Saturday, October 1 from 3 to 4:30 p.m. The workshop is free with museum admission.

Have you ever wondered about the best way to store a special ceremonial flag, or how to preserve a wedding dress you have carefully kept as a family memento? What about all of those photo albums with the sticky pages – is that really a safe way to store treasured images of times gone by? This workshop will address these and other family collections care questions.

“The preservation of museum collections is a primary responsibility of museum curators,” said Curator of History Michele Nielsen. “Many of the issues we deal with in the museum are identical to challenges faced by individuals with collections of family heirlooms. In this workshop, we’ll explore the most practical and efficient ways to make sure your own family treasures last through generations.”

The San Bernardino County Museum is at the California Street exit from Interstate 10 in Redlands. Museum admission is $6 (adult), $5 (student or senior), and $4 (children 5 to 12). Children under 5 and Museum Association members are admitted free, and parking is free. For more information, visit or call (909) 307-2669 / TDD/TTY: (909) 792-1462.
