(Victor Valley)– If something feels weird on Sunday, March 20, it may be because it’s National Extraterrestrial Abduction Day! This day, which may have started in 2008 at a festival in Toronto, now provides the perfect reason for a Family Mystery Day at the San Bernardino County Museum in conjunction with the museum’s newest exhibit, “Mysteries at the Museum.” Activities are scheduled between 1 and 4 p.m.
The first order of business at Mysteries at the Museum Day will be making tin foil hats. Other activities include puzzle mysteries, platypus coloring, and discovering the differences between ravens and crows.
The exhibit itself features objects from the museum collections that may not be quite what they seem. Visitors can use the scientific method to deduce what the objects are or how they were used, and then check their hypotheses.
Mysteries Day 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.
The San Bernardino County Museum is at 2024 Orange Tree Lane, at the California Street exit from Interstate 10 in Redlands. The museum is open Tuesdays through Sundays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. General admission is $10 (adult), $8 (military or senior), $7 (student), and $5 (child aged 5 to 12). Children under five and Museum Association members are admitted free. Pre-Pi Day activities are included with museum admission. Parking is free. For more information, visit www.sbcountymuseum.org. The museum is accessible to persons with disabilities.
