About the Autry National Center
The Autry National Center is an intercultural history center that
includes the Southwest Museum of the American Indian, the Museum of the
American West (formerly the Autry Museum of Western Heritage), and the
Institute for the Study of the American West. Each institution
maintains its individual identity; however, the convergence of
resources allows us to expand our understanding of the diverse peoples
of the American West, connecting the past with the present to inform
our shared future. The Autry National Center’s executive offices are
located in Griffith Park.
