If you had a hankerin’ to dance with a one-armed bandit — forget about it. Avalon’s Casino has no gambling, just a deserved reputation as one of the jewels in the crown of Southern California landmarks. Built in 1929 at a then-astronomical cost of $2 million, the circular Moorish masterpiece is an Art Deco lover’s delight. It hosts a movie theatre, a museum and frequent weddings and dances in the circular ballroom. Walk in the footsteps of millions and take a stroll along Via Casino walkway to experience this architectural marvel.
Located in Avalon’s historic Casino, the museum has updated its entire facility to include an expanded museum store, a digital theater, a number of galleries dedicated to the history of Catalina Island and a new traveling exhibitions gallery. The traveling exhibitions gallery will feature temporary exhibitions that are often derived from either the Catalina Island Museum’s own extensive archive or the collections of other museums.
