The San Bernardino County Museum invites the public to visit the museum with no admission fee on Sunday, August 3. Visitors will enjoy programs and special exhibits as well as displays of specimens and artifacts that interpret local history, anthropology, geology, paleontology, and biological sciences in regional context. The free day is sponsored by the San Bernardino County Second District.

From 11 am to 4 pm, the museum education division will host a Family Fun Day "Going Loco!" Children will enjoy assembling their own "paper" steam locomotive as they learn railroad terms such as a steam dome and a sand dome. These free activities are designed for adults and children between the ages of 3 to 12.

Special exhibits at the museum include "All That Glitters: a century of razzle-dazzle," "A Feast for the Eyes: dining in style, 1860s to 1940s," "Sticks and Stones: vernacular architecture in San Bernardino County," and "A Piece of My Heart: samplers from the collections."

The San Bernardino County Museum is at the California Street exit from Interstate 10 in Redlands. The museum is open from 9 am to 5 pm. Everyone is admitted free on Sunday, August 3. Parking is free. For more information, visit www.sbcountymuseum.org.
