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 3. Visitors will enjoy permanent displays of specimens and artifacts that interpret local history, anthropology, geology, paleontology, and biological sciences in regional context. Special exhibits will include “Underneath it All: fitting into fashion,” and “Hanging with the Museum, art by museum staff and volunteers.” Free admission is made possible with support from San Bernardino County’s Fourth Supervisorial District.
At 2:00 p.m., Curator of Paleontology Eric Scott will present a lecture, “Living Large: Ice Age Mammals and Early Humans in Southern California.” Scott will discuss the Pleistocene Epoch–the “Ice Ages” when North America was populated by an amazing variety of mammals including mammoths, mastodons, ground sloths, and saber-toothed cats. Why did many species die out around eleven thousand years ago? Did early humans live alongside these great beasts?
The San Bernardino County Museum is at the California Street exit from Interstate 10 in Redlands. Everyone is admitted free on Sunday, December 3. The museum is open Tuesdays through Sundays and holiday Mondays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Parking is free. For more information, visit www.sbcountymuseum.org.
