  • You may purchase new pictures by famous current artists, a great history/ecology tour tailored especially to your groups just call ahead. Exhibits are pretty fair in their non stereotyped historical chararacters and events_: the very first Gatling gun was a chillingly understated memorial to our own national genocide. Awesome gift store. Special rates for kids,seniors,vets and groups.
  • We had a blast. Kind of kid friendly with the western TV props and theater but my kids were so excited that I had to tell them to slow down a few times. Amazing artwork and the staff was awesome. Will definitely be back.
  • My 11yr old loved panning for gold! Beautiful Art with different themed sections around the inside of the building. Peaceful and very kid friendly.
  • Pretty mich the only way our children will come to understand the richness of the art that was survival during the westward expansion will be through museums like this one. Alao, sadly, the truth of how the expansion was accomplished is also hidden in modern life. This collection is full and explains the many facets of change.
  • Another awesome location to spend with family and learning about the American West and artist. This is right across from the Los Angeles Zoo in Griffith Park. This museum inviting and filled with so many awesome exhibits. I recommend this museum for school age children and older.
