Great little museum/memorial to Lincoln.

We were surprised that this was here and we didn't realize it. Nice display on Lincoln, complete with artifacts, original artwork and tons of research material.

The presentation and exhibits are great. The museum is small, but very tasteful and professional. It's located next to the library.

who knew all these amazing artifacts were hidden inside this small but amazing museum.. Get a new appreciation on Lincoln and others who lived and fought during this time. Well worth taking the time to visit.

I just moved to Redlands so I figured that I would go sightseeing and I found this pretty neat museum that shows a lot of Pres. Lincoln artifacts and things from the Civil War. So many handwritten letters from the 1900s. They had a really neat video that shows the Civil War in four minutes and it counts the number... More

If you like American History, and Abraham Lincoln in particular, don't miss this gem of a shrine in Redlands, CA! Just half a mile off of Interstate 10, you will find an original Norman Rockwell painting and actual letters from soldiers and Generals in the Civil War. The displays will keep you spell bound as you read the placards.

Really, all I need to say is "WOW". I have known about the Lincoln Memorial Shrine for years and I used to live nearby, but never visited. For some reason, I just pictured a statue of Lincoln or something. I had no idea it was such an amazing and comprehensive museum! When you enter the shrine you are in a... More

I have lived in the IE for over 20 yrs, and never knew this was here. It is a nice little gem in Redlands. As other's have said, this is a nice shrine towards Lincoln. Plenty of exhibits inside to view. Staff is nice and friendly. I worthwhile visit.

/you don't have to be a Republican to appreciate Abraham Lincoln. The Lincoln Shrine in Redlands, CA offers a look into our 16th President of the United States. On his way to leading our country, he lost a number of elections before moving Washington. History is revisited at the Lincoln Shrine but you don't have to be a history buff... More

What a nice surprise, particularly for my husband who is a Civil War enthusiast. The domed Lincoln Memorial Shrine, in the middle of Redlands, had an exhibit of specific years/battles during the Linclon presidency. The docent provided a brief overview of this timeframe and was knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and open to questions. Check out the paintings and quilt and the stories... More
