Cardinal City Museum

Last item for navigation


Located on the campus of San Bernardino High School, The Cardinal City Museum opened its doors to the public in the fall of 1963. Since then, the museum seeks to become a major cultural center in the region.

In 2018, the CCM ignited the flame of change within our organization to grow and become a 21st century museum. In the last couple of years the museum has seen historic investments from never before seen technology such as S.P.A.R.K-E the robot that will welcome our guest to a state of the art museum building. 

Since then the museum has taken the lead to restore the Victory Bell as well as historical paintings on campus, and work on the maintenance of campus display cases. We have cleaned, organized and properly archived all of our historical objects for the first time. The museum has reconnected with our alumni and community and has joined the American Alliance of Museums whose mission is to champion equitable and impactful museums by connecting people, fostering learning and community, and nurturing museum excellence

Visitors are not permitted to touch artifacts, artwork, frames, pedestals, or cases. Many artifacts and artworks are very fragile, and even gentle touches can damage an object overtime. Help us preserve these important historical objects.

Please use low, indoor, voices when inside the museum.

In many cases there will be other people visiting the museum at the same time and we ask that all our visitors be respectful to one another so that all visitors enjoy their experience at CCM.
