  • Although they have removed the Hollywood set part of the museum, the display of 1800's artifacts are fantastic. I do think that they need to open the cafe again.

  • The Autry is part museum, part Hollywood and captures a time, items and an entertaining quality not often found elsewhere.

  • Fun museum detailing the history of the American west - great kid education moment. Also had a fun exhibition on the history of the Aloha shirt and denim when I went. Yee-haw! 🤠
  • We visited this museum while on our way to Griffith Observatory. While it the museum is good, it has a lot of contexts all together. On a side note, if you bring your Bank of America cards, you have free entry
