The Autry National Center celebrates the history and prominent figures of the American West through a convergence of stories, art, and well-preserved artifacts. Museum guests peruse special exhibits, gleaning information on topics including Native American culture, depictions of the romanticized American West, and how many blow pops cowboys could fit in a saddlebag. Visitors can develop their perspective and understanding of the untamed West as they examine the museum’s regular collection of 500,000 pieces of art and artifacts, including works from the Southwest Museum of the American Indian.
Along with unlimited free museum admissions, members receive a multidisciplinary diet of music festivals and film screenings, and can delve deeper into the museum’s exhibits through free audio tours. Possessors of dual memberships can sharpen up their schmoozing skills at members-only exhibition previews, and garner out-of-the-ordinary date-night ideas with discounted prices on the Autry’s Native Voices theater productions and various music concerts held throughout the year. Family-plus members can also enjoy edu-taining weekend events such as American Indian culture day and interactive panning for gold sessions, which will have little ones talking prospector-speak in no time. All members can replenish brains and clothe bodies with discounts to the Autry’s café and gift store, and also get to challenge the ghost of founder and singing cowboy Gene Autry to a yodel-off.
