San Bernardino Museum features "Through the Keyhole" in Redlands

Don't Miss

Visit the special exhibit, “Through the Keyhole,”  at the Fisk Gallery of the San Bernardino County Museum in Redlands.

The exhibit features historic locks and keys on loan from the Scott J. Klemm collection.

Scott Klemm first started collecting locks and keys while a teenager.

I read a biography of Harry Houdini and the tale of this escape artist inspired me to learn to pick locks,” said Klemm. “I thought I could learn the secret of lock-picking by prying open some old padlocks, but some were just too interesting to butcher. This was the start of my collection and my lifelong interest in the history of locks and their makers.”


Klemm worked as a teacher for the Colton Joint Union School District for 26 years, first as a social studies teacher at Colton Jr. High and later as a world history teacher at Colton High School.

Klemm is the author of 3 books; “100 Years of Crimson & Gold Pride: Colton High School 1895—1996”,  “Ancient Locks: The Evolutionary Development of the Lock and Key.” Most recently, his book “Unlocking the Portals of History” was published by the San Bernardino County Museum Association and is now available in the Museum Store.

Everyone seems to have grown up with a hobby and this man collected keys and locks. I am going to go see the display.

That looks like an interesting exhibit Kristin. Anything vintage and antique and I am in .. it does make you wonder what homes these belonged to and who lived there ..

Hi Andrea,

He collected the locks and keys from all over the world from the time he was a teen. I am sure they must have been taken off of fancy walls and gates in some exotic land.
