The Autry Museum: Native American Horsemen

The Autry Museum: Native American Horsemen

Located in Los Angeles, California, The Autry Museum of the American West is a museum dedicated to exploring, supporting and preserving the heritage of the American West. The Autry was founded in 1988 by actor and performer to house much of his own collection of Western Art, with the museum later merging with the Southwest Museum of the American Indian to improve the facilities for research, and to better share the story of the West.

A feature which we particularly enjoyed at the Autry was the art depicting the life of Native American Horsemen.
