Admission is $14/adult with discounts for AAA, seniors, children and museum members. Parking is free. There are two floors accessible by elevator and stairs. If you like Western art and cowboy history and films, start downstairs. This was my favorite part. There is also contemporary...More

Really enjoyed the Salsa Night. Live band in the courtyard with dancing and free lessons! Also enjoyed the quiet exhibit hall. Wish i could have stayed longer.

Especially through December 2018, to see the Rick Bartow exhibit. He's the late American Indian artist from Oregon. Unbelievable work. The regular exhibitions are fine. Very interesting artifacts of the American west. Child friendly. Active duty military and vets get free admission.

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.
