With the help of the Catalina Island Museum and numerous collectors, the exhibition at the California Heritage Museum took the museum visitor on an imaginary trip to Catalina to view its romantic past and present-day island life-style by covering the topics listed above, and many, many more.

During the run of the exhibition, several tours to Catalina Island were hosted by historian and author Larry Harris. His book "The Jewels of Avalon" provides the reader with an exciting tour of Avalon's public art and colorful and decorative tiles that can be found at more than 30 sites.
