This place far exceeded my expectations. Lots of info on various famous cowboys, i.e. The Lone Ranger, Hopalong Cassidy, Roy Rogers, etc. plus many from earlier and later periods. It has a video in a room that is well worth seeing. There was a small charge. I was with 4 other people and they all liked it and were surprised... More

After visiting the Alabama Hills area in Lone Pine, I stopped in at the film museum. It was OK - the $5 admission was about right. I'm not a huge fan of some of the old cowboy stars (Roy Rogers, Hopalong Cassidy etc) so a lot of the stuff was lost on me. Lots of memorabilia from the old TV... More

From the outside you can't tell what a wonderful museum this is. The inside has great quality exhibits. I usually don't sit for the free museum movies or documentaries but I tried theirs and it is a must see for only 15 minutes. Stopped by on my way to Convict Lake (another must see place!) with elderly parents, kids and... More

Came to visit Manzanar and decided to take in the museum. What a treat. Did you know Gunga Din,The Lone Ranger,Tremors,Ironman and so many more films were shot here? There were posters,stagecoaches, costumes and info about singers,stuntmen,actors and directors. There was a great film and a cute gift shop. Seen this so many times driving up 395. Glad we finally...

So I must admit that I have a limited knowledge of cowboy film but on visiting this small but excellent museum I have a wider application of how these films were made. We were on our way to Death Valley and on passing through Lone Pine which is a lovely town, we stopped in at the museum. This place is... More

What made our visit to this museum was the curator - we arrived just as it had closed having misread the summer closing time rather than the winter one. Not only did she let us in, she also gave us a personal guided tour around the museum, delaying her own finish time. Such a wonderful collection of items relating to... More

As I was passing through Lone Pine again, I had to visit the The Western Movie Museum for the second time. It did not disappoint. Since my last visit in June 2012 a whole lot of new exhibits to do with the making of Django Unchained have been added making it even more fascinating. The original movie poster displays are...
