THE INLAND EMPIRE’S 100 MUSEUMS

There are more than 100 museums in the Inland Empire. You could visit one each weekend and it would take you almost two years to see them all.

The following list is a work-in-progress, and I welcome additions and corrections. I want to thank and acknowledge reader George Morris for his inspiration and assistance. He began the work by compiling a list of 50 museums, mostly in the West End of San Bernardino County. I’ve added 50 more by culling a wider area that includes all of San Bernardino and Riverside counties, plus inland portions of Los Angeles County.
