Once through the mansion's iconic redwood front door, you'll experience the luxuries and amenities of William S. Hart beautiful 1920s-era home. The mansion features Bill Hart's personal possessions—his collection of art by renowned artists (and good friends) Charles Russell, James Montgomery Flagg, and Joe De Yong; his collection of Native American artifacts including an impressive array of baskets and Navajo rugs; his furnishings and home amenities; and even his daily and formal flatware, which sit on the cowboy movie star's dining tables.

The museum's team of incredible tour guides focus on different elements of the Hart home, so each tour is unique and no matter how many visits you make, you will see and learn something new each time!
