Although Social Stories are typically used and created for people with autism, these guides can serve any visitor who wants to know what to expect. Access our Social Stories here.

Service Animal Policy

The Autry Museum is committed to welcoming a wide and diverse audience, including those assisted by trained service animals. The Autry Museum complies with the American with Disabilities act (ADA), which defines service animals as a dog that has been individually trained to do work or perform tasks for an individual with a disability. The task(s) performed by the dog must be directly related to the person’s disability. The Autry Museum allows service dogs in all public areas of the museum.

The Autry Museum does not allow Emotional Support Animals (ESA) inside the museum. Emotional Support Animals, Comfort Animals, or Therapy Animals do not qualify as service animals under the ADA.

If the dog is out of control or not housebroken, the handler will be asked to remove the dog from the museum.

Know Before You Go

  • Large bags (more than 13 x 12 x 4 inches) of any type are not permitted.
  • No back-worn baby carriers or children on shoulders allowed.
  • Soft, front-facing carriers and strollers are allowed.
  • We do not have lockers; any oversized baggage will need to be stored in your vehicle or at home.

Code of Conduct

We look forward to your visit. As you plan your day, we remind you that the Autry will not tolerate inappropriate behavior, including, but not limited to, yelling, violence, intimidation, threats, harassment, aggression, swearing, damage, abuse, or sexual harassment. Individuals who are aggressive toward staff or other visitors will be expelled from the Autry and escorted off the property.

Update: Historic Southwest Museum Mt. Washington Campus

The Historic Southwest Museum Mt. Washington campus is closed.  The Autry in Griffith Park remains open during regular visiting hours.

The Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD) recently performed a regular inspection of the Southwest Museum campus, and due to a number of safety concerns found by the inspectors, the Autry has announced that the Southwest Museum campus has closed to the public.

LAFD brought a number of issues to the attention of the Autry, all of which must be addressed and complied with per the City of Los Angeles ’municipal code. The Autry is reviewing LAFD’s report and assessing the timeline and fiscal impact of the repairs needed as identified by LAFD. The Autry Museum’s Griffith Park campus remains open during regular business hours.

The Autry is committed to the utmost safety and well-being of our patrons and staff, and we will provide further updates as they become available.

Land Acknowledgment

The Autry Museum of American West acknowledges the Gabrielino/Tongva peoples as the traditional land caretakers of Tovaangar (the Los Angeles basin and So. Channel Islands). We recognize that the Autry Museum and its campuses are located on the traditional lands of Gabrielino/Tongva peoples and we pay our respects to the Honuukvetam (Ancestors), ‘Ahiihirom (Elders) and ‘Eyoohiinkem (our relatives/relations) past, present and emerging.
