A very well presented museum that covers the history of the American West from multiple viewpoints. Both sad an fascinating. The right number of exhibits prevents overload, tells the story and keeps interesting. I was sorry to reach the finish. Highly recommended.

Went there with my wife while visiting my son in LA. Clearly exceeded my expectations. This is not a museum about Gene Autry but a museum about the American west. Has a section on film and movies about westerns as well as on the history...More

If you enjoy western and early western television and films this is the place for you to visit alone or with company, The price is affordable and close location to downtown Los Angeles.

...then this is a good stop for you. Some more-than-decent Western art, and some interesting movie Western memorabilia. A great collection of pistols and rifles, if you're into that. Probably not worth more than two hours of your time. Be advised that it was very...More

This museum houses a substantial collection of western, specifically Californian history. It's nicely located within Griffith park.

This museum romanticize the old west and glosses over the nasty stuff. I skipped all the fire arm glorification and focused on the Native American handicrafts and paintings. Nicely presented and uncrowded, I spent a nice hour wandering around.

Located in a lovely park, with other attractions nearby, the Gene Autry Museum of the Old West is small enough to do properly in one day, and is very family and ADA friendly. I am quite mobility challenged, but with just the aid of my...More

Lots of Americana, as we went west. Hollywood has taken the dust, sweat, and hard work out of a grimy existence and entertained us very well. High quality museum with art, song, history all woven together. Don't miss it---good for one hour to all day!

When I was young, cowboys were my superheroes and TV and movie westerns were the best entertainment. The Autry Museum definitely showcases that aspect of western history, with costumes, posters, saddles, and guns aplenty on display. But it also tells the story of the real...More

We are travelling to California December 2016 and would like to visit the Gene Autry museum. We are not sure where we will be staying, probably Anaheim although we may stay a few days somewhere around Hollywood. Are there tours from hotels to the Gene Autry Museum or do you need to make your own way there - we will not have a car. Thanks,

Not sure about tours. Suggest using Uber or renting a car...Costco has great rates for members. Might want to check Burbank area hotels since Disney and Warner studios in area.
