Free Admission Sunday at the 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, December 4. Visitors will enjoy special exhibits along with displays of specimens and artifacts that interpret local history, anthropology, geology, paleontology, and biological sciences in regional context. A special gallery talk about the new exhibit “A Life of Adventure: Jim and Della Fisk” will be offered at 2 p.m.

“This is the third in our new series of free Sunday programming,” explained Museum Director Robert McKernan. “In August, we focused on our county’s First District; in November we looked at the Second District. This time, we’ll invite visitors to take a closer look at the county’s Third District: Big Bear Lake, Grand Terrace, Highland, Loma Linda, Redlands, a portion of San Bernardino, Yucaipa, Yucca Valley, and incorporated communities in the San Bernardino Mountains and High Desert.”

Vintage images from the museum’s archives of sites in the county’s Third District at the turn of the last century will be on exhibit during the day.

A free gallery talk, “Fisks in the Fisk,” will be offered by Curator of History Michele Nielsen in the museum’s Fisk Gallery at 2 p.m. The talk relates to the museum’s newest special exhibit, “A Life of Adventure: Jim and Della Fisk,” which opens on December 3. Nielsen will discuss the pioneer Fisk family with special emphasis on their travels and adventures in the San Bernardino Mountains.

In addition to “A Life of Adventure,” visitors will also see “Beaded Treasures,” a special exhibit of beaded items from the museum collections that were designed and made in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

“Free Sundays are a perfect opportunity to present special programs that emphasize various county districts and remind our patrons that the museum serves all of inland Southern California,” said McKernan.
