Museum Goes on the Road for High Desert Students

Museum Goes on the Road for High Desert Students

Brad Mitzelfelt

SAN BERNARDINO – The San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors today approved funding for the San Bernardino County Museum’s “Museum on the Road” educational program. The program, which is funded by a $15,000 Community Foundation grant, is an educational outreach program for students and residents in the High Desert.

Supervisor Brad Mitzelfelt, who has made bringing a County Museum to the High Desert one of his goals, said the program is a good alternative for students unable to travel to the County Museum in Redlands. “Until we get a branch of the County Museum in the High Desert, this is a great option for our students,” he said. “The County Museum in Redlands is at least an hour’s drive away for the residents in my district and this program brings the education experience of the museum to children who might not otherwise have the opportunity to experience its cultural and educational exhibits.”
