Out of an abundance of caution and in conjunction with the current Chapman University response to Coronavirus (COVID-19), the California’s Gold Exhibit and Huell Howser Archives are suspending and postponing any tours, scheduled visits, and walk-in visits for the immediate future. Our staff personnel will still be available (via email) for research and general information requests and our video archive is still functioning. We apologize for the inconvenience and will keep you updated as circumstances change.

Please visit CU Safely Back to stay up to date with Chapman University’s most current COVID-19 guidelines.


Please note: Chapman University and the Huell Howser Archives do not produce, sell, or distribute DVD copies of the Huell Howser Archives. To view an episode, please visit the video archives.
