A beautiful Museum. All the exhibits will bring back memories of the great westerns on TV (if you are old enough) They were even televised in Black and White, before color. You move thru the museum and my favorite was the movie stars exhibits. Next to each TV series you saw the clothing etc and viewed an episode with sound.... More

Beautiful location and facilities (though they are currently under renovation). Terrific artwork ranging from late 19th century to the present. Saloon room will make every man cave jealous.

Very well laid out and with a pleasant cafe. Very good display charting the Civil War and the part the Native Americans and slaves played in it. Interesting collection of 'Wild West' memorabilia - guns, clothing etc. Exhibition of art and the opportunity to pan for gold!

I really like the Autry. It's small & there is only one place to eat, but it's interesting & your kids can pan for fake gold. After the Autry, head down the road to Travel Town (it's free).

This museum has surprises for everyone of all ages. If you are into the history of the S.W., this museum will fill in all the details for you. It has excellent descriptions, pictorials, exhibits, and videos of people, places and artifacts of this era. All of the items just mentioned are very well thought out and displayed. There is also...

My son took us to the Route 66 exhibit at the Autry. Such a trip back into time. They even had a classic car in the middle of the exhibit. Who knew that such amazing things were kept in such good shape. It's good to see a museum care so much about Americana.

Fun place to visit if you have some free time and are looking to learn about the old west and history of the US in general. Beautiful area and free parking. Cost of admission very inexpensive. Even the little cafe had good eats!

The Autry's American West collections were impressive even before they acquired the Southwest Museum's archaeological holdings. Now they are a significant locale for Native American history as well as the old (white) West. The interior and cafeteria had been given a facelift, and the fall Native American market is huge and of high quality. Highly recommended.

My husband especially wanted to see Gene Autry's famous guitar, but after doing that we found ourselves fascinated the memorabilia on several of theology-time Western stars. The film lips eye interesting,but too short! We wish there have beebpn a theater program of maybe 45 minutes or more showing extensive lips of the legendary Western films and TV shows.
