Autry National Center

Hotels near Autry National Center, Los Angeles, United States .

Los Angeles might not be the first city that comes to mind when thinking about how the west was won, but it was a crucial point in a lot of the country's most important history, as far as the American West goes. One of the best places to learn more about the culture and lifestyle of the beginning of westward expansion and long before is at The Autry National Center of the American West.

Also known as just The Autry National Center, the museum is more than a simple cowboys versus indians style museum. Rather, it's an intercultural center, where visitors are easily taken on a walk through history, from the Southwest Museum of the American Indian, the Museum of the American West, and the Institute of Study of the American West, all of which give equal time to all facets of the beginnings of settlements by Americans in the west, as well as the lives of indigenous people who inhabited the land for a longer period of time beforehand.

More than a simple museum, The Autry National Center has the most impressive collection of this particular type of history outside of The Smithsonian Institution, including a great deal of truly unique artisan and handcrafted artifacts. It's worth the trip alone just to take a peek at the incredible handwoven baskets that have lasted hundreds of years.

The Autry National Center is open from ten until four Tuesday through Friday and on Saturdays and Sundays from eleven until five. The museum is closed on Mondays.

A number of hotels are close to the center, including The Days Inn Glendale Los Angeles and The Homestead Los Angeles Glendale.
