Love this museum because the exhibits are so varied. On our last visit, there was an exhibit on play (including everything from American Indian toys to an original Barbie doll and video games) and an exhibit on the influence of the cowboy on popular culture...More

The museum is good for information on western movies, colt revolvers, for information about California native Americans, for a sample of plants that grow in arid land, and much more. There are ever changing sections. The museum is much larger than I imagined. We spent...More

The Museum of the West is a beautifully realized, outstanding American jewel. Nestled inside Griffith Park near the zoo, it offers visitors an interesting, unique sometimes provocative view of the American west. The facility is itself a lovely artform,and spending time inside is a joy....More

This is very interesting to walk around the "western" history of Los Angeles and cowboys from days gone by. There's a lot of interesting things to see for not a lot of money, and I believe Tuesdays are free

Going through the Autry Museum brings you back to the days of the Wild West with the glitz of Hollywood. A truly enjoyable time there with my husband, Col. Edwin P. Ramsey, 26th Cavalry PS who passed away four years ago.

This is a wonderful museum because it is not as huge as other museums. There are a few exhibits, that are quite extensive and interesting, but you won't get lost here. Beautiful setting. Enjoyed a movie and truck night in the park just outside.

The museum is an extremely well presented collection of cowboy memorabelia from a fascinating authentic chuck wagon used during the 1800s to a toy plastic replica of Batt Masterson's "Buntline Special," which I owned as a kid. If you're in your 6th, 7th, or 8th...More

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.
