Autry Museum of the American West

Located in beautiful Griffith Park, the Autry features world-class galleries filled with Native American art and artifacts, Western film memorabilia, cowboy tools, and fun for the entire family.

This year, the Autry presents 2 live performances by the Goedel Family Hoop Dancers (Yakama/Tulalip) at 10:45 a.m. and 12:15 p.m., and story time inside the museum featuring cultural tales from Jacque Nunez (Acjachemen Nation) at 1:15 and 2:30 p.m.

Check the schedule for times!

Any day of the week, you can adventure into our Imagination Gallery and experience movie magic as you saddle up and ride through the West, just like movie actors do. Pose for photos on a pretend horse, explore the museum through themed scavenger hunts, and check out our hands-on sound effects station.

On weekend afternoons, try your hand at panning for gold. And join monthly Autry Explorers family programs for hands-on fun featuring dynamic guest artists and presenters from LEGO® to ©Disney Junior and more.


Open Tuesdays through Sundays, museum admission is free for children under 3 and $4 for children ages 3–12. Located across from the L.A. Zoo with a kid-friendly cafe onsite.
