My husband is a fan of old movies...all types. This was perfect for him. Humphrey Bogart;s car alone "made the trip worthwhile" he said with a childlike grin. The exhibits were... read more

My husband is a fan of old movies...all types. This was perfect for him. Humphrey Bogart;s car alone "made the trip worthwhile" he said with a childlike grin. The exhibits were well thought out and represented Westerns filmed in the local area and also newer movies like Star Wars and Iron man. The little theatre inside the museum shows a... More

I was unsure as not a great western fan but there was loads of cool stuff. The dentist wagon from Django Unchained, Gladiator, Star Wars, Tremors, as well as Western stuff. Reminded me of watching black and whites with my grandad. Definitely worth a stop.

Even though we are not fans of western movies we both really appreciated this museum and all the film memorabilia. Worth a visit if in the area and interesting to find out the history of the area.

The modest sized museum is dominated by exhibits on classic Westerns but also has artifacts from more recent films such as Tremors and Django Unchained. We spent a pleasant hour drifting through. Worth the time!

One of the things that makes this part of California so interesting and worth visiting is the history of movies made in the region. A favorite of mine is TRIAL AND ERROR. To fully appreciate that history plan a visit to this museam. It's fun.

The Lone Pine area has so many areas that were used for filming movies over the last 100 years! This museum does a great job with photos, displays, and props to document and showcase. I don't know that young kids would get excited over seeing this (except for may the Iron Man display). But we adults sure did.

This is a small museum about all the films made in Lone Pine and the surrounding areas. The short documentary film they show in the theater is the best part of the visit so do not miss it! I grew up watching old Westerns on TV and the film brought back all those wonderful memories! The exhibits are well done... More

This compact museum has something for everyone from science fiction to western films of old. The memorabilia is nicely arranged and has a terrific little gift shop. Don't miss the 15 minute documentary! It will leave you wanting more. Reasonably priced :-)
