The museum was recommended to us by a local in Jake's Saloon. What a terrific find. Some really unique, and I am guessing priceless, exhibits, from the 30s all the way up to 2012. Learned a great deal and had a thoroughly enjoyable 90 minutes. All for $5 a head. Do go and support these guys.

So much movie memorabilia here and could have spent longer. The lady was very friendly and helpful and made sure we saw the movie which they run for visitors. A lot of things to see in a small museum.

Had no idea, been by this place so many times. Thought, huh, whats inside, a giant ball of yarn? NOPE! All kinds of great stuff here. Not just dusty old relecs. The tooth wagon from Dajngo Unchaned is here. You get a scence of just ho long of a history of filming there has been. Not just westerns but Sci-Fi... More

The Movie Museum is a very interesting history of the movies that were made in the Alabama Hills and Lone Pine area. They have a lot of the actual movie set stuff arranged in interesting areas that are set up around different actors. It gave a lot of incite into what happened in the Alabama Hills so when we went...

Takes you back in time of Saturday afternoon matinee western movies. Be sure to watch the documentary showing in the theatre. Good displays of stagecoaches, wagons etc used in the movies.

Interesting documentary about the film industry in the museum. If you're old enough to remember Western Movies it will be a surprise with the costumes, cars, and guns. Easy to find since it is on the main road in and out of Lone Pine. Lots of parking.

The staff was very knowledgable about film history and very helpful about information concerning the geological features... More

Lone Pine is located near the Alabama Hills, where parts of many Hollywood Westerns were shot back in the 30's-70's, as well as Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained, Tremors, and some other more recent film scenes. The museum is very well done with some great displays with original memorabilia, props, and a couple of old cars from the films. For example,... More
