Great Memories

The Autry Museum has different exhibits throughout the year but the TV/movie cowboy show exhibits are great fun and bring back a lot of memories for 50's kids.

The Autry celebrates the American West and does so in a fascinating and beautiful way, honoring Native American life and art as well as that of the whites who came west.

Have been there several times, Enjoyed learning about the history of the Cowboys and Indians of years past. Special areas for children. They can play dressup, pan for gold,take a picture on a bucking bronco and listen to a docent explain about how the fur from animals had many different uses. Of course there is an entire section devoted to... More

This place was huge with such a variety of different mediums to include art of the west, sculptures, movie memorabilia and nice small collection of pistols and rifles . The exhibit chronicling life of Mabel McKay was awesome!

This museum is extraordinary, especially if you're a fan of cowboys, American Indians, or the expansion and settling of our western territories. The last time I was there they had a special exhibition of Sergio Leone's western movies. And of course many gorgeous works of art. I highly recommend everyone to come learn why the name Remington is famous world... More

The disposition of the building and the space around it,courtyard and interiors are very impressive, but the collection of the museum especially the art section is very everege . May be when they have some special exhibits or some special movie showing it make sense to visit. It was full of school children and nothing really significant to see.
