“History Comes Alive”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

A treasure trove of Lincoln and Civil War history. Many original documents and artifacts. The Memorial provides a rich field of information for both scholars and the merely curious. The Memorial is sited in a lovely, small park behind the A.K. Smiley Library, another of Redlands' "crown jewels."

This is a must for the history buff. You would not expect such a wonderful and informative experience for such a small town...but I guarantee you will enjoy it.

“Everything you always want to know about Lincoln!”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

Complete with an authentic civil war surgical field kit on display.

This is a must see if you are in Redlands, historic in and of itself.

The docents are friendly and knowledgeable, and the displays are well lit and filled with interesting information.

“A little piece of history”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

If you are a Civil War buff like me you have to go to this Memorial Museum. It's small, but it has so much. You can really get emotional here looking at the art and photos. I am so proud to have this in my town.
