Museum programs are designed to add art, history and culture to your life!

Thanks to the kindness and generosity of our members, the Catalina Island Museum is now capable of bringing world-class exhibitions to Avalon. The Ada Blanche Wrigley Schreiner Building - opened in 2016 - also allows us to bring the island's history and culture to life.

The museum is proud to present an array of historical artifacts that tell the story of Catalina Island's unique past in its expanded and improved history galleries along with special exhibitions that inspire and delight.

Join us as we grow toward a future filled with imagination, inspiration and education for all, fulfilling our vision: An anchor of tradition. A beacon of culture. Inspiring our communities.
