This museum is full of history, especially for those of us who love and loved Cowboy Movies. Lots of memorabilia, super authentic, this is a must visit when in Lone Pine.

Interesting exhibits for movie buffs. This museum was a great addition to this iconic town. After visiting the museum drive a few miles outside of town and check out the beautiful Alabama Hills where hundreds of movies were filmed. If you have time head up Whitney Portal Road to Mt Whitney Falls for a great view of the entire valley.

We looked forward to visiting the Alabama Hills for years! So we figured the movie museum was a good place to start. And it was. Being fans of older western movies we enjoyed a couple hours looking at all the cowboy memrobelia, and the history of the movies filmed locally. Now we were excited to head in to them thar... More

We visited this museum on route to Death Valley . It costs 5 dollars each and was money well spent. There are loads of things to see and take photos off. You must see the video in the theatre which is run regularly. It explains the movies and the nearby Alabama hills. Then you can visit. Could have spent longer... More

Cost is $5. and well worth it if you are a movie buff. Stay for the 15 minute movie which helps you understand the area. Movie posters, memorabilia, historical stories.....all great! Gift shop has DVD's of old westerns for sale.

What an interesting museum with all the cowboy memorabilia. The short movie tells you about all the movies made in the area. Be sure to get a map of the Alabama Hills while there.

I make it a point to stop by every 6 months or so as they are always changing things, and I don’t want to miss out. It’s a must see museum if you have any interest in older westerns or movies in general. Also gives a great history lesson of the Alabama Hills and surrounding areas. Very cheap entertainment at...

We decided to go here as we were leaving Lone Pine after an overnight stay at Comfort Inn. This was well put together and had quality items in the collection. We spend about 1.5 hrs including the 15 min video which gave us a better insight into the history of western movie making. It also evoked memories of our childhood... More

Thought that Lone Pine was one of the worst places we have ever visited, but the Film History Museum was a great find. Having been kids in the 50's and 60's in Montana, all our cowboy heroes are featured there. Roy Rogers and Dale Evans, the Lone Ranger, etc. If you are an old film buff this museum is worth... More
