Nestled into the northeast corner of Griffith Park, this museum explores the history of the American West. You might just expect a kitschy exploration of the life and works of famous singing cowboy Gene Autry, but the museum presents a much more engaging exploration of the West, outlining its history and detailing the myths that came to surround it. Learn about Native Americans through art and artifacts brush up on a bit of cowboy with the museum's collection of more than half a million objects. Afterwards, make sure to check out their Cross Roads West Café, research library and store. Keep an eye on their calendar since this museum also doubles as a venue for film screenings, lectures, music, and other events.
Free for veterans, peace officers, park rangers, and active military personnel with ID. Free to the public every second Tuesday of each month, New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King Day and President’s Day.
