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

For anyone with an interest in American history and President Lincoln in particular, this little gem on a side street in Redlands in well worth a visit. It was built by a couple as a tribute to their son and centers on the years 1863 and 1864 of Lincoln's presidency. There's a collection of books about Lincoln and also of... More

This really is a fascinating destination in Redlands. It is the largest collection of Lincoln manuscripts and exhibits west of the Mississippi River. If you're a Civil War buff, definitely make a trip here.

Who would think there'd be a shrine/museum that honors Lincoln in the middle of downtown Redlands. Certainly worth a visit if you are in town.

This is an experience everyone should afford themselves. There is a lot of history here and words cannot give you the feeling you would have if you went and saw this for yourself. It is a very beautiful, touching experience and it is so much more involved that you would expect.

This little museum has an awesome collection of Lincoln memorabilia. Check out the library in the same park. Both have wonderful architecture. Short walk to historical post office with little Pony Express museum.

The Lincoln Shrine is one of many jewels that Redlands possesses. There are many interesting artifacts from President Lincoln's life and the civil war. I have visited the Shrine several times over the last few years and it never ceases to amaze me. Many school children have made field trips to it and I feel it's something that everyone should...

The Shrine is a true tribute to our 16th President. The power of Mr. Lincoln can be felt through the President's quotes and speeches inscribed on the outer walls of the Shrine as well as the wealth of artifacts found inside. A visitor to the Shrine will be amazed to find such significant and priceless pieces of Lincoln history in... More
