A wonderful surprise. We stayed over 3 hours because there was so much to see: weapons, clothing, short films, art. The boundaries were pushed a bit - Hawaiian clothing - but everything was put into context. The dungaree info wasn’t quite accurate. I can remember in 1959 buying them at the Army/Navy store in men’s sizes. Then I’d put them on, get into a very hot bath tub and shrink them to size. The Autry reminded me of the 50’s.

I loved it! This place is full of art, artifacts, galleries, exhibits, and stories. I spent quite a few hours here and enjoyed every part of it. I learned a lot and gained a new appreciation for this part of history.

I stopped in as I was staying nearby in Glendale. I also happened to go on the day of the month when they have free admission. In spite of this, the museum was not busy and I was able to explore at my leisure. There is a nice outdoor area and educational exhibits and artifacts from the west. Overall, a nice option if you are looking for something a bit different.

Very interesting place of country cowboy stars' memorabilia. Brought back my childhood memories of Gene Autrey, Roy Rogers, etc. Some very nice exhibits and information about the time period. Only costs $10/person and Vetereans get in free..

Happened to be in town during celebration of a special anniversary for Griffith Park, we had a wonderful time checking out the exhibits, and were lucky to see presentations by a few writers. Lots of room for exhibits, layout is easy to navigate, and the exhibits were truly fascinating. It's a good day out.

This is an interesting museum to learn about western movement to California. Volunteers set up carts around the halls to give visitors hands-on experiences. I've been here with three different classes for field trips and the kids all learned something. Usually they like the gold guns, panning for gold, and the hands-on stuff. It's worth a visit.

Nice surprise when we went on New Year's Day as the admission was waived. So much more in the museum than information about Gene Autry. Articles and clothing from western movies, videos, and even an interactive "horse" to ride with a video in the background that was enjoyed by kids and adults. Nice restaurant on site, too.

If you have any interest in the American West, the Autry is a place for you. A wonderful collection of artifacts from the "Ol' West" including Billy the Kid's rifle and a great collection of Colts. This is truly a hidden gem of Southern California

We had never visited, but I'm glad we did! Such a broad exhibit of the American West. From native cultures, thorough the settlement of the west, to the west in media, it is here. The quick tour was just that, but a goid overview of what's available to base the rest of your visit. And free parking in LA? Who knew?

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 and cowboys. There is an absolutely beautiful, huge mural of Western history. Also, a few stagecoaches...one you can climb into.

A fun gallery is the one on old TV & movie cowboys with old posters and costumes. You can even watch some of the old TV shows...and try your acting skills, too.

There is a patio landscaped like the scenery of the Old West, including a lovely waterfall....and a huge sculpture of Gene Autry and his horse at the entrance.
