Update: Historic Southwest Museum Mt. Washington Campus

The Historic Southwest Museum Mt. Washington campus is temporarily closed.  The Autry in Griffith Park remains open during regular visiting hours.

The Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD) recently performed a regular inspection of the Southwest Museum campus, and due to a number of safety concerns found by the inspectors, the Autry has announced that the Southwest Museum campus will temporarily close to the public until further notice.

LAFD brought a number of issues to the attention of the Autry, all of which must be addressed and complied with per the City of Los Angeles ’municipal code. The Autry is reviewing LAFD’s report and assessing the timeline and fiscal impact of the repairs needed as identified by LAFD. The Autry Museum’s Griffith Park campus remains open during regular business hours.

The Autry is committed to the utmost safety and well-being of our patrons and staff, and we will provide further updates as they become available.


Wheelchairs and strollers are now available to borrow at this time.

To help people on the autism spectrum prepare for their visit, we have created Social Stories guides with photos and descriptions. Although Social Stories are typically used and created for people with autism, these guides can serve any visitor who wants to know what to expect. Access our Social Stories here.

Service Animal Policy

The Autry Museum is committed to welcoming a wide and diverse audience, including those assisted by trained service animals. The Autry Museum complies with the American with Disabilities act (ADA), which defines service animals as a dog that has been individually trained to do work or perform tasks for an individual with a disability. The task(s) performed by the dog must be directly related to the person’s disability. The Autry Museum allows service dogs in all public areas of the museum.

The Autry Museum does not allow Emotional Support Animals (ESA) inside the museum. Emotional Support Animals, Comfort Animals, or Therapy Animals do not qualify as service animals under the ADA.

If the dog is out of control or not housebroken, the handler will be asked to remove the dog from the museum.

Know Before You Go

The Cafe remains closed to visitors. Food trucks are available onsite on weekends. Guests are welcome to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy on our lawn or plaza, but please store all food and drink in your vehicle as we do not have storage areas for bags, coolers, or picnic baskets. Please call Visitor Services at 323.495.4252 for more information. Food and drink (except bottled water) are prohibited inside the museum.

Coat check is not available; large bags (more than 13 x 12 x 4 inches) of any type are not permitted; no back-worn baby carriers or children on shoulders allowed; soft, front-facing carriers and strollers are allowed. We do not have lockers; any oversized baggage will need to be stored in your vehicle or at home.

Please note the following health and safety protocols:

  • The Autry is no longer requiring proof of COVID-19 vaccination for admission to the museum. All visitors are welcome regardless of their vaccination status. This policy change is in alignment with the recently passed Los Angeles City Council measure lifting the requirement for businesses within the city to verify customer vaccination status. 
  • Masks are optional for all visitors regardless of vaccination status per the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health’s most recent Health Officer Order. At this time, the Health Officer Order strongly recommends wearing a mask indoors within Los Angeles County.
  • People experiencing any symptoms (cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, fever, chills, and/or any other symptoms associated with COVID-19) should not enter the premises.
