The Gene Autry Museum is one of the more interesting museums I've visited. The museum has several "galleries", each with its own theme. There are cowboy and Native American artifacts, beautiful Old West oil paintings and sculptures, potteries, saddles and apparel of the Native Americans...More

It was a treat breaking away from meetings, what a cute little museum packed with information, everything you need to know about the West, the tour guide was outstanding with really in-depth explanation of California history.

Admission is $14/adult with discounts for AAA, seniors, children and museum members. Parking is free. There are two floors accessible by elevator and stairs. If you like Western art and cowboy history and films, start downstairs. This was my favorite part. There is also contemporary...More

The Museum offers much more than a tribute to Gene Autry, one of America's favorite cowboys. It features exhibits on West Coast culture. It is nostalgic to see exhibits devoted to the cowboys that were featured in the movies and television programming. They always have...More

This is not a large - get lost in type of museum. We really enjoyed taking our time and seeing all of the exhibits. Definitely a "jewel" in our book.

Really enjoyed the Salsa Night. Live band in the courtyard with dancing and free lessons! Also enjoyed the quiet exhibit hall. Wish i could have stayed longer.

Especially through December 2018, to see the Rick Bartow exhibit. He's the late American Indian artist from Oregon. Unbelievable work. The regular exhibitions are fine. Very interesting artifacts of the American west. Child friendly. Active duty military and vets get free admission.

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.
