Western Day at the County Museum
Event date: Saturday, March 21, 2015
The San Bernardino County Museum will celebrate Western Day on Saturday, March 21, 2015, in conjunction with their new exhibit, “Turn Left at the Rockies.” Activities, scheduled from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., are included with paid museum admission. Museum visitors are encouraged to dress up in their western duds in honor of the day’s activities.
Visitors will participate in western-themed crafts and enjoy exhibit cart talks and interactive activities. Demonstrators will teach families how to make rope and how to pan for gold. Members of 4-H programs will be on hand to share information about animals of the West. From noon to 4 p.m. “Code of the West” will reenact characters from the late nineteenth century, including historical gunfights.
Western Day, Turn Left at the Rockies, and the County Museum’s other exciting events and exhibits reflect the effort by the Board of Supervisors to achieve the Countywide Vision by celebrating arts, culture, and education in the county, creating quality of life for residents and visitors. Western Day is supported in part by the San Bernardino County Museum Association.
