The Autry was a nice museum. The movie/TV memorabilia and gun exhibits get a 4 out of 5 rating from me. The art exhibits were disappointing. I was looking for art reflecting the early west and the expansion of the nation. Most of the displays...More

The best part of this museum is the firearm collection from the Western frontier period. The varieties of manufacturers, models and different time periods are all here in pristine collector condition.

I visited this place during my vacation in Los Angeles. It was a full day. There are so many different exhibits to see. People who work there are very friendly.

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.
