Welcome back to the Autry! We are thrilled to share the diverse stories of the American West with you in person once again. We know from our surveys that the vast majority of visitors appreciate our taking all precautions possible—including requiring masks, onsite temperature checks, and social distancing. Our highest priority is keeping our visitors, staff, and volunteers safe.
Admission tickets are now available for purchase onsite. Advance reservations are not required at this time. We will continue to carefully monitor visitor capacity to ensure the Autry remains well within current city, county, and state guidelines.
