I love the Autry Museum for a couple reasons. One, cowboys/indians, the little boy in me will always love them. Two, American/Western history, art is such a beautiful way to preserve our history/culture. The museum is fairly open and spacious. I've been there a couple times for visiting and even once for a private event. As a museum, it has several wings based on different groupings. My personal favorite is the section about music, such cool outfits and funny to see how small some performers are/outfit details. There is a beautiful wide open grass area out front, so pack a picnic if you can, on a nice day, it is great. This area has shared parking with the LA Zoo as well, I don't recommend both in the same day though.
