Museum Adventure

Ok, so this is from a trip in the fall but I felt like posting so...
Gene Autry Museum!!

Intricately detailed saddles...

 Theme furniture...


 Movie designs for western movie costumes
 Dapper gentlemen...
 Thick and ornate fabric that seems that it might be difficult to wear in hot temperatures...
Hoop for the hoop skirt, ever practical in the dusty towns...

 Fun saloons...and cash registers, I want to hear the "ding!" I imagine goes with it...

 Gold guns...
Wild west spirit and community...

Gene Autry museum contains loads of interesting history and makes it so easy to imagine what it was like in California and the general west. There is such a big section on western history in Hollywood too that never ceases to fascinate me. So if you have an opportunity to go to the Gene Autry museum, do! It is so choice!
