Autry Museum of the American West Coupons and Deals
The multicultural center grants several unique learning opportunities with art and museum exhibits and lectures by historians and scholars
Indulge your inner cowpoke by spending a day exploring the multicultural history of the American West at the Autry National Center, truly one of L.A.'s most interesting and interactive museums -- and the only one to combine Native American and Western cultures so engagingly. Just across from the zoo in Griffith Park, this state-of-the-art facility is home to lots of amazing exhibitions and more than half-a-million artifacts that explore the culture, art and everyday family life of the region, along with a fascinating look back at cowboy pop culture. A main attraction is its collection from the Southwest Museum of the American Indian -- one of the most extensive and significant of its kind in the entire nation -- highlights of which are now on display. Much of this is thanks to the vision of co-founder Gene Autry, known as "America's Favorite Singing Cowboy." He's also the only entertainer to have five stars on Hollywood's Walk of Fame, one each for radio, records, film, television and live theatrical performance. The museum houses some of his personal memorabilia, as well as that of other stars -- like the original Lone Ranger costume and the iconic shirts from "Brokeback Mountain", among many other interesting pieces.
