Cute little museum with lots of memorabilia from the old west movie shoots that were done in the area. $5 well spent, and be sure to see the documentary film.

great museum, great history, had just ridden the Whitney Portal Road to the top, to see Roy Earle's Plymoutht there was cool, more than just westerns, great for $5 donation. take some time to look at it all, it is worth the trip. not touristy, anyone who likes films will dig it, even had the worms from Tremors

The small admission charge is worth it, to see all the memorabilia and the DVD giving the history of movie making in Lone Pine
