Great collection of things/posters and such of movies made in the area. A step back in history if you are a cinema buff...especially westerns. Glad we finally took the time to stop and walk through.

If you like old westerns or are an old movie buff, you can't miss this museum. The museum is very well done and has some fascinating holdings. Part of the treat are the old film clips that you can enjoy, or the full theatre in non-Covid times. If you are going into the Alabama Hills to visit some of the old movie locations, you need to stop by this museum before or after your visit to the Hills. These two attractions really compliment each other. We easily spent a couple of hours there.

Very nice museum. It had a lot of the historical background of where films were made. in the area. A lot of the exhibits contained detailed and well presented items.

Good introduction film in the theater. LOTS of mementos of old western film stars along with many props from movies and TV shows. They cover it all. Only $5 per person (2020). Gift shop too (of course). You won't be disappointed.

This museum is a must see. Absolutely great place to stop. So much history from Western movies past and other present movies made right there in Lone Pine. So much memorabilia. There is also a movie theatre inside. The docents are friendly, informative. The displays are awesome. You must stop and see this amazing gem. They also have free maps so you can locate the areas where the film's were made in the Alabama Hills.
