This is a terrific little museum that is a true hidden gem. Dedicated to a single genre, the singing cowboy, and bearing the name of one of the most famous western actors of all time, Gene Autry, the museum contains countless artifacts and memorabilia of the era of singing cowboy films, radio productions and television shows running roughly from the...

This is a museum of movie posters and extremely few Autry artifacts. No Autry biographical material ( where born, parents, siblings, path to stardom, etc). Exhibits have zero explanation of their province. Little mention of Autry as successful business man and owner of The Angels If you like old style movie posters, a room full of boots and no interest... More

You're absolutely correct, our displays could use some posted explanations and I can assure you those are on our Wish List--unless you'd like to help fund those expenses which we would be honored for you to do. Unfortunately you came at a time where there were several groups going through the Museum concurrently and you did not get our full... More

I enjoyed the museum very much. I think it told a lot of history of the cowboy and especially Gene autry and all his movies. The one thing that was a disappointment was the gift shop. There was hardly any variety to buy with his name . It would be easy to have memorial cups, pens, or more colorful shirts... More

Thank you for your kind review! We DO have picnic tables under the Pavillion on the North side of the building for anyone to use. Regarding your store comments, we couldn't agree with you more! However we had to start the store from scratch just 2 months ago with only a $400 budget. Please be patient, we are growing! And... More

We took a day trip to the Gene Autry Museum in Gene Autry,Oklahoma. It was worth the drive. The Museum is amazing! It has memorabilia from many of the singing cowboys and film/tv cowboys as well as hundreds of items that were Gene Autry's. The collection is huge. The museum was a school and every room is full of pictures... More

of a museum! If you are at all interested in the movie cowboys of the 30's, 40's and early 50's this is a place you need to see. Be warned that they have a lot more stuff to see than you would think what with it being in such a small town. I would advice giving yourself at least 2... More

This is a small out of the way museum. The artifacts are plentiful and interesting. This is a good place to take a bus tour. If you like history and Gene Autry, this is a good place to visit.

Very interesting if you are interested in Gene Autry and most all of the Singing Cowboys. Very friendly lady pointed out very special items of special interest, and she had lots of little-known stories about many of them. We will go back when we have more time! No admission fee - just donate if you wish.

My dad and I visited the museum and really enjoyed all the displays and information from Ms. Leslie! She told us about a concert that same night and we went back for that and it was very entertaining! Thank you Leslie for all the great stories and information!

This museum has everything Gene Autry plus a lot of other old western stuff. I'm a little young to remember watching him, but seeing all the old merchandise and movie art brings back my childhood memories of John Wayne & Clint Eastwood. It's good for kids about 10 and up. If you ever dreamed of being a cowboy when you... More
