This weekend was the San Bernardino Train Days at the San Bernardino County Museum in Redlands, CA. The SB County Museum is a very nice museum in and of itself. On a normal day it is what you would expect from a county museum. It has typical museum stuff. On the upper floors they have one of the largest bird egg exhibits you have ever seen (and probably will ever want to see). In between levels there are rock exhibits. The lower floor is dedicated to San Bernardino County History. Then finally, the basement has a big stuffed mammal exhibits (think Road Kill-R-Us).
That of course is on a normal day, and today was not a normal day. Today was train day!! On train day the whole museum gets overtaken by trains. There were tiny Z gauge trains that were smaller than a finger, there were trains you can ride, and then there are even actual trains! For AJ (who is 3) this was a very exhilarating way to pass two hours (the event goes all day long but we had other things to do that day). This is definitely an event for the train lover in your life (which right now happens to be just me and AJ, Denise did not go).
Admission is $8 dollars for those 4 and up.
