Museum Services & Resources

In our museum gallery, surrounded by the largest Western back lot in the country, we introduce you to the old and new legends of the Western screen. Our gallery exhibits contain memorabilia and information about Westerns from the earliest days of the silent screen to some of the latest. With an emphasis on the epic landscapes of the local region, including the Alabama Hills, Owens Valley, the Sierra Nevada and Death Valley, our collection highlights the dramatic role landscape has played in the great hollywood productions filmed here for just over 100 years.
