The journey to build a world-class museum in Redlands started with the search for a permanent home. Several sites were considered, analyzed, and reviewed, but none met all the criteria until 2014, when news reached the Redlands Historical Museum Association (RHMA) that the Redlands Daily Facts building on Brookside Avenue was available. Thanks to a generous financial contribution by former RHMA board member Clara Mae Clem, the RHMA closed escrow later that year and acquired the property as the home of the Museum of Redlands.

Once renovated, the present 14,000 square foot site will be transformed into an open-space, modern museum and events center—complete with galleries, pavilion, and proper staging and storage facilities for MOR collections. 

The new Museum of Redlands will feature:

  • A functional and modern exterior and interior design

  • Built to national museum standards

  • Open and Ample Gallery Space

  • Dynamic Exhibits and Displays 

       (including special or traveling exhibits or

       by featured local or regional artists) 

  • Interactive Displays 

  • Educational Programs

  • Museum Store

  • Events Pavilion and Garden

  • Memberships & Exclusive Member Programs

Features may vary or be modified as needed.
