The Autry Museum is dedicated to sharing experiences of the people who settled the west - cowboys, Chinese immigrants, gold miners - and they also have over 250,000 significant Native American artifacts - from one of the most extensive collections in the world. There are many rifles and saddles to see!
Though DT and I had a much-rushed much-abbreviated tour through the museum (since we were with a two year old), we both enjoyed the art and interesting displays of western life.Leo liked "riding a horse" at the museum The family in the outdoor "gold mining" area Murals at the Autry Center
The "exploration" area for children is awesome. Kids can unpack treasures from China and "work" in a Chinese restaurant. They can also pan for gold (on weekends).Even a bike rack is a place to play Indian tacos from the on-site cafe Spread the love -->
