“Interpretive Center is Neat but Small”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2011

My Family and I stopped at the interpretive center in our rented gasoline golf cart and spent a few minutes viewing the exhibits. The Center is dedicated to the preservation of Natural Santa Catalina and the exhibits are both interesting and eye catching. My only complaint, there was not enough time (due to our rental contract) to spend more time there and that is certainly not the fault of the Center.

I would recommend a walk up from downtown Avalon and a 30 to 45 minutes to drink in all the exhibits and the film (which we did not have time to watch). The building is rather small but they have packed it full of information.
