Help Support the Autry:
Members are the heart of the Autry. They come from all walks of life and enjoy their membership benefits differently. The unlimited free admission that comes with membership allows you to create your own museum experience—one day at a time, all year long.
A great way to make a difference at the Autry is to volunteer your time and skills at any of our insightful and thought-provoking events and exhibitions. Or you can choose to work behind-the-scenes or up front at the Visitor Services Desk. Volunteers of all ages and abilities are a vital part of the success of the Autry.
The Autry National Center thanks the many generous companies—both local and national—who support its mission to tell the diverse stories of the American West through exhibitions, lectures, theatre productions, film screenings, live music and dance performances, and hands-on children’s activities.
