This museum houses a substantial collection of western, specifically Californian history. It's nicely located within Griffith park.

This museum romanticize the old west and glosses over the nasty stuff. I skipped all the fire arm glorification and focused on the Native American handicrafts and paintings. Nicely presented and uncrowded, I spent a nice hour wandering around.

Located in a lovely park, with other attractions nearby, the Gene Autry Museum of the Old West is small enough to do properly in one day, and is very family and ADA friendly. I am quite mobility challenged, but with just the aid of my...More

If you are interested how the American west was actually populated, what it feels like being on a wagon trail, what dangers and threats you had to bear - this is the place to visit. We found the exhibitions very informative and got a good...More

Lots of Americana, as we went west. Hollywood has taken the dust, sweat, and hard work out of a grimy existence and entertained us very well. High quality museum with art, song, history all woven together. Don't miss it---good for one hour to all day!

When I was young, cowboys were my superheroes and TV and movie westerns were the best entertainment. The Autry Museum definitely showcases that aspect of western history, with costumes, posters, saddles, and guns aplenty on display. But it also tells the story of the real...More

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to this fine museum. Although I have lived in southern Cal for 30 years, I never even heard of the museum until about a year ago. The museum covers the American West. It is not a biographical history of Gene...More

The Autry Museum has different exhibits throughout the year but the TV/movie cowboy show exhibits are great fun and bring back a lot of memories for 50's kids.

We are travelling to California December 2016 and would like to visit the Gene Autry museum. We are not sure where we will be staying, probably Anaheim although we may stay a few days somewhere around Hollywood. Are there tours from hotels to the Gene Autry Museum or do you need to make your own way there - we will not have a car. Thanks,

Not sure about tours. Suggest using Uber or renting a car...Costco has great rates for members. Might want to check Burbank area hotels since Disney and Warner studios in area.
