Save the Date: Saturday, October 17, 2020

Our annual museum benefit will coincide with our premiere exhibition of the year

Titanic: Real Artifacts, Real People, Real Stories.


We invite you to save the date of October 17, 2020 with the intent to raise critical support for the Catalina Island Museum. Exhibitions about the RMS Titanic have proven time and time again to be an irresistible draw; and with an exhibition of this caliber, the Catalina Island Museum aims to play a crucial role in reinvigorating Avalon culturally and economically.


This event will offer the first opportunity to view this uniquely assembled exhibition that explores the drama of the RMS Titanic's maiden voyage through artifacts, images and personal belongings. Unlike larger Titanic exhibitions, Catalina Island Museum has worked with private collectors to bring together unique items from the Titanic for the first time since 1912. This includes the story of Avalonian Lillian Minahan who traveled aboard Titanic – a truly amazing connection to Catalina.

Be a part of the christening of this exhibition, mingle with special guests and as always, take part in the most lively, outlandish and record-breaking event of the year headed up by Master of Ceremonies and Celebrity Auctioneer Matt Rogers.


Due to the safety of our members, supporters and staff, this event will take place virtually. Stay tuned for entertainment and auction item teasers.
