Background


The Autry Museum of Western Heritage ("The Autry") is a world-class center devoted to preserving and interpreting the rich history and traditions of the American West. With one of the most comprehensive collections of Western history and art, its seven permanent galleries and special exhibitions offer material gathered from the many cultures and events that have shaped the legacy of this vast region.

The Autry brings together the threads of different cultures and customs that have contributed to the rich tapestry that is the West today. This history can be seen in the details of a rare photograph and in the ornate silk patterns of an American Indian wedding dress.

It lies in the craftsmanship of the tools and belongings that played such vital roles in everyday life.

The galleries also present the story of the West by contrasting the historical with the mythological. Art, film, and advertising have shaped perceptions of the region, and The Autry explores contemporary culture, as well as historical realities. Whether it is the art of Albert Bierstadt, Frederic Remington, or N.C. Wyeth; the tools, clothing, and firearms of people who inhabited the West; or the costumes, scripts, and props of Western film and television, The Autry offers an enjoyable and engaging opportunity to discover the legacy of the West.
