Been here several times with people from age 4 to 91. Something for everyone at this museum. Always easy to park (can't take this for granted in LA,) and right across from the LA Zoo if you want to spend the morning outdoors and the...More

Thought I would give this place a try. What a surprise. Educational and fun. There is something everyone. The Colt gun collection was the best. Such a history lesson, I was there 4 hours.

I have been to the Autry Museum many times. I am always impressed with the quality of their exhibits. The buildings and grounds are well kept. My favorite exhibit is the Masters of the American West held in February/March each year

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.

We are travelling to California December 2016 and would like to visit the Gene Autry museum. We are not sure where we will be staying, probably Anaheim although we may stay a few days somewhere around Hollywood. Are there tours from hotels to the Gene Autry Museum or do you need to make your own way there - we will not have a car. Thanks,

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.
