    Initial skepticism about the museum's quality is understandable. Its genesis was Gene Autry, best know (over the objection of Roy Rogers' fans) as "America's Favorite Singing Cowboy." He starred in B movies and later, was a baseball executive. His best-know recording was Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer - a non-cowboy song.

    However, the Autry National Center of the American West really is a serious, well crafted undertaking that exhibits and interprets the heritage of the American West. It includes the Museum of the American West, the Southwest Museum of the American Indian and the Institute for the Study of the American West.

    North of Downtown in Griffith Park, this is one of the country's finest and most comprehensive museums of the American West. More than 100,000 pieces of art and artifacts showcasing the history of the region west of the Mississippi River are intelligently displayed. Evocative exhibits illustrate the everyday lives of early pioneers, not only with antique firearms, tools, saddles, and the like, but also with many hands-on displays that successfully stir the imagination and the heart. Displays include the Southwest Museum of the American Indian Collection and the works of western artists, as well as film clips from the silent days of early Westerns and contemporary movies. Provocative visiting exhibits usually focus on cultural or domestic regional history. Docent-led tours are generally scheduled on Saturdays at 11:30am, 1, and 3pm.

    A museum that focuses on the wild west and the various themes that run around it. There is a really cool movie exhibit that showcases the Westerns made in Hollywood. There's even a mini-movie set here. The docents are all very knowledgeable about their exhibits.

    A classic museum focusing on the American west and southwest. Exhibits on cowboys, indians, and wild west culture are sure to delight all visitors.
