This is probably the greatest hidden gem in southern California. The Lincoln Shrine is a history buff's dream come true. I have gone numerous times with my kids we enjoy the rotating displays.

As an Alabama native, I was very interested to see inside this Redlands treasure chest. Went for the Lincoln birthday re-enactment and tour. After seeing a genuine antique piece of field artillery fired, I browsed Friends of the Library book sale and came away with some great bargains on C.S.A. generals. The museum is chock full of 19th century antiquities... More

We were visiting family in Redlands and were looking for something to do as a group. We were fortunate enough to stumble on this hidden gem. The amount of Lincoln related artifacts on display there is amazing. There is no admission charge but donations are welcome.

We found this while site-seeing in Redlands. It has so many artifacts from the civil war era, including strands of hair from President Lincoln's hair, a wreath from his casket, as well as casted masks. There are so many civil war paraphernalia to see as well. Figure a good hour or hour and a half to thoroughly go through it.... More

We happened upon this site when there was a summer celebration going on all over the park area. There were people who were giving informational speeches and there were different sections that offered view of artifacts from the time. Lovely displays

Closest you'll ever get to one of our greatest presidents. Seriously. We only had a short visit - it's old, quaint and full of stories...if you ask. And ask. If we hadn't invited resident docent Pam Wilke to tell us a story, the shine would have been a boring, dusty old museum of forgotten artifacts. Wait. Her name is Wilkie?... More

For those interested in history and Abraham Lincoln, make a point to stop in Historic Redlands CA. approx. 75 miles east of L.A. a large collection of Lincoln memorabilia and museum quality artifacts from the Civil war era. A beautiful setting and a beautiful shrine to one of the greatest American Presidents.

I would have given it a 5 star if there was a little more. But what is there is excellent quality, excellent display organization, very well thought out. And the bathroom was as clean as you'll see in a 5 star motel. Take at least an hour to brouse through all of it. The room on the right as you... More

The hidden pearl of Redlands, California, is home to the greatest store of Abraham Lincoln wisdom, history, and facets of this Great American's life, west of the Mississippi. Believe it! Was the Gettysburg Address really written on the train on the way there - or not? What did Lincoln think of McClellan, Burnside, and his other generals? Did you know... More
