Movies at the Museum

Avalon’s beautiful summer nights are the ideal setting to take in a classic film at the Catalina Island Museum during Movies at the Museum. This summer program was designed to offer people of all ages an option to enjoy the museum after hours. Catalina Island and magic are the main themes explored in this year’s program.

Windward Beach Cleanup

Volunteer in the great outdoors while combing the sand for debris to help keep our windward beaches pristine. Clean-up locations like Shark Harbor, Little Harbor, Ben Weston and Cottonwood rotate throughout the year.
