Explore the myths and realities of the American West and its diverse populations at the Museum of the American West.
The museum enhances our understanding of the present by collecting, preserving and interpreting objects and art, and making connections between the people of today and those who helped shape the past.
The Museum of the American West is part of The Autry National Center, which pays homage to the American West, from its Native American roots to its pioneering past and the romance created by Hollywood.
Whether it's the art of Frederic Remington or N.C. Wyeth, the tools and clothing of many cultures, or the costumes and props of film and TV, the whole family will enjoy this captivating exploration of the West's legacy.
The Autry National Center was established in March 2003 following the merger of the Southwest Museum of the American Indian, the Women of the West Museum, and the Autry Museum of Western Heritage. Leveraging the resources and talents of these three institutions, the Center's mission is to explore the experiences and perceptions of the diverse people of the American West, connecting the past with the present to inform our shared future.
