The Autry was a nice museum. The movie/TV memorabilia and gun exhibits get a 4 out of 5 rating from me. The art exhibits were disappointing. I was looking for art reflecting the early west and the expansion of the nation. Most of the displays...More

There is more to this museum than Gene Autry. A beautiful collection of guns with a great history of their manufacturing and use. I found the volunteer fire engine fascinating.

I visited this place during my vacation in Los Angeles. It was a full day. There are so many different exhibits to see. People who work there are very friendly.

Museum closes at 4 pm so go early. It was very well presented. I liked the guns and the cowboy movie star memorabilia.

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.
