Autry National Center

Family Activities

There’s always something fun for families at the Autry! In the Imagination Gallery, experience movie magic as you saddle up and ride through the West, just like movie actors do. Pose for photos on a pretend horse, explore the museum through themed scavenger hunts, and check out our hands-on sound effects station. On weekend afternoons, try your hand at panning for gold.

Each monthly Autry Explorers Family Program features dynamic guest artists and presenters, plus hands-on museum fun for all ages. Stop by the Visitor Services Desk to pick up your Autry Explorers Passport to journey through the West! Collect two or more activity stamps to win a prize.

Museum admission is free for children under 3 and $4 for children ages 3–12.
