Took my visiting family and it was a great relaxing visit. Lot of interesting this about the the old west. It's also close to the Zoo, so it can be a great starting point before the LA Zoo.

This is a great museum too go through in a couple of hours. The special exhibits were interesting and added much to the experience. The salad at the cafe was just mediocre and the kale was wilted. We had a very good time.

We hadn't been here for a number of years...we weren't sure what to expect. It was easy to get to, the museum folks were helpful, senior admission was reasonable, lunch was good. We enjoyed the museum. Wished there were more exhibits on Mr. Autry

Definitely a place for those who are interested in general history or old Hollywood. Might be a little boring to others, but if you're into it, they have really cool exhibits and tons of information.

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.
