About the Autry Museum of the American West
The Autry is a museum dedicated to exploring and sharing the stories, experiences, and perceptions of the diverse peoples of the American West, connecting the past to the present to inspire our shared future. The museum presents a wide range of exhibitions and public programs—including lectures, film, theatre, festivals, family events, and music—and performs scholarship, research, and educational outreach. The Autry’s collection of more than 600,000 pieces of art and cultural objects includes one of the largest and most significant of Native American materials in the United States.

About Imagined Wests
In the long-term exhibition Imagined Wests, visitors of all ages can explore the ways we tell stories about the American West through pop culture, clothing, toys, art, archives, and other media. The exhibition features over 250 objects from the Autry collections, as well as multimedia and hands-on activities, including the museum’s popular “green screen.” The gallery asks, as we so often do at the Autry, “What is a Western?” Imagined Wests travels through Western storytelling landscapes, through retellings of history, and through the craft of many “West makers” from tailors to actors. We also explore the “view from here,” a focus on Southern California’s role as a place for stories.
