Reviewed June 8, 2012

Small but interesting snapshot of one of our Western heros and stage icons. See a buffalo if you are lucky!

“A stroll down memory lane @ the William Hart Museum”
Reviewed June 5, 2012

Liked going to the Museum on top of the hill! House was owned by silent actor William Hart who donated the whole ranch to LA County when he died. Lots of cool old stuff! Was surprised to see him in a phote with Amelia Earhart! Col day trip! Just 5 minutes away from our place!

“A Wonderful, Varied Place to Spend an Afternoon”
Reviewed May 15, 2012

I've ben to the Hart Park and Museum on several different occasions and will happily return again. There are a variety of activities and they seem to be working on even more. There are several areas where animals are kept and little childen love it. There's a great open area with lawn and shade for a picnic or for families. Then there is the Hart House atop the hill that is worth the effort to climb up to see and to take the tour. I've taken many friends and relatives to Hart Park and will go back again.
