The Museum was very interesting in preserving the legend of Gene Autry. There were many items to view. I am sure the overhead cost is tremendous but for simple donations you can see it and enjoy. Keep in mind that Gene lived in an era where only us old folks remember him on the Silver Screen, while your kids may be wondering where the HD comes in. Directions when you get close to the Museum seems to fade and not well illustrated to find. But once you get inside, there is quite a lot to be seen. There is no Eating establishments nearby so eat before you come. There really isn't much of a Town left, but once you get inside the Museum, you will forget that. They have done a great job of preserving the Gene Autry history and the Museum continues to grow and more visitors are coming all the time. Just don't think it is like Las Vegas with spit and polish. The Curator is great in explaining the GA history and I learned a lot about him I did not know. I am sure you will too. Your kids if you have some to bring will have a lot of questions since they most likely don't know who he was. The things I viewed there brought back a lot of memories. I even saw items I did not know existed during that era. I recommend the Museum for what it has to offer and I believe you will find it interesting as well.

Need Road signs and better directions. All of us missed the turn. Need something out front that identifies Gene Autry other than on the building. Improve the Road. Larger Sign on Highway I-35
