Stumbled upon this Museum while visiting town--it's a great way to spend a couple of cool hours on a 100-degree day. The Museum chronicles the history of movie-making in the Lone Pine/Alabama Hills area--hundreds of films have been shot there. Mostly westerns, starting in the silent era through today, with "Django Unchained" the most recent film featured in the display--the... More

$5 "donation" that's mandatory. I really dislike a donation that's mandatory! Only worth it--- if, if, if, if you're a western film buff. 15 minute film that's kinda cool about the history of film making in lone pine. Lotsa of memorabilia and film posters.

A neat place to explore if in the area as so many old westerns and newer movies/commercials have been filmed in the area. Now I’m kinda keyed in when watching westerns, commercials, and/or even movies as I’ll recognize the area and even understand why it was filmed there. In a way – kinda like after exploring Universal Studios. Defiantly worth... More

I'm not really into westerns but the whole family found this museum to be fun and interesting with some great stories and artefacts from various films along with a 15 minute film describing all the films made in the surrounding hills. For only 5 dollars to get in, we thought it was well worth it. Not really much there for... More

Really interesting museum about the history of filmmaking in the area. Excellent 15 minute documentary and then tons of stuff to see as you walk around. The collection is impressive and we learned a lot. The $5 per person donation was worth it. If you have time you should absolutely check the place out

A great attraction if you happen to be in Lone Pine CA for Mt. Whitney or starting/ ending your trip to Death Valley. Lone Pine has been the backdrop for so many Westerns since the early 1920's and even a few non westerns like Gunga Din through Iron Man and Tremors. Tons of movie posters and props to keep even...

Great history of the movies. Friendly people who run the place. I was surprised that it was a non profit/donation museum. Great place if you are into old westerns and a couple of modern exhibits

The museum does an excellent job of displaying the history of film in the Lone Pine area. I would recommend the 15 minute movie in the theater. It sets up all the displays nicely in the the rest of the musieum. I liked the different rooms that portray the actors and actresses how performed in the area. A must stop!
