A very well presented museum that covers the history of the American West from multiple viewpoints. Both sad an fascinating. The right number of exhibits prevents overload, tells the story and keeps interesting. I was sorry to reach the finish. Highly recommended.

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.
