Fodor's Expert Review Catalina Island Museum

Avalon Museum/Gallery
The exterior of the Catalina Island Museum is a nod to Catalina Island's developer William Wrigley Jr.—it's modeled after Wrigley Field in Chicago. Inside, the museum traces the island's history from it's pre-contact days and native Chumash to its role in Hollywood history and beyond. Two galleries host travelling exhibitions. The view from the outside terrace takes in lovely Avalon and its picturesque harbor. A small gift shop offers reproductions of the island's signature colorful Catalina pottery tiles.
