The tiny southern Oklahoma town of Gene Autry is home to none other than the Gene Autry, Oklahoma Museum, a special space dedicated to preserving the history and legacy of cowboys and cowgirls in popular culture. The town took its name from its famous resident, who owned a ranch in the vicinity.

Gene Autry, Oklahoma Museum houses the world’s largest collection of vintage cowboys in entertainment memorabilia from the 1920s to the present day. Of course, Gene Autry and the Singing Cowboys are prominently featured, but the museum includes a variety of popular figures from radio, vinyl, tape, CDs, film, television and YouTube.

The museum's colorful displays center on such legendary figures as Gene Autry, Roy Rogers, John Wayne and others, and it features everything from movie posters and records to comic books and unique collectibles. Housed in the building that was once the town schoolhouse, the museum also uses the 500-seat auditorium as the location for the annual Cowboy Way MayFest. For a classic cowboy experience, there's no place better than the Gene Autry, Oklahoma Museum.

Admission to the museum is by donation. Visitors are encouraged to tour the museum first and then donate what they’re comfortable giving. The museum is open Thursdays through Sundays or by appointment; call to schedule.

Group/private tours are also available! Call in advance to schedule.
