The Southwest Museum of the American Indian is a museum, library and archive owned by the Autry Museum of the American West. It is on the National Register of Historical Places and the California Register of Historic Places. 

This museum oversees the second largest and one of the finest collections of Native American objects in the United States. Artifacts range in age from prehistoric to the present, documenting Native history and culture in the Americas. Some of the earliest pieces in the collection include archaeological materials from museums and sponsored excavations.

There's also a stunning collection of ceramics sourced from across the southwestern United States. One ongoing exhibition is called "The Silent West," which features a collection of American West–themed posters from the silent film era. There's also "California Road Trip," which shows a panoramic and close-up dual projection film featuring landscapes of The Golden State, such as Death Valley, Joshua Tree and Mt. Whitney.
