The William S. Hart Museum is the former home of the famed silent film actor and director who produced a series of hit Western movies in the early 1900s. His beautiful Spanish Colonial Revival style Mansion – now the William S. Hart Museum – exhibits an impressive collection of Western artwork as well as mementos from early Hollywood, personal furnishings and effects, and artifacts representing multiple Native American cultures. The Hart Museum is a tribute to Southern California history. It also includes an historic 1910 Ranch House that exhibits Hart’s tack and saddle collection. Both the Mansion and Ranch House are located in scenic William S. Hart Park where guests may enjoy visiting a live collection of farm animals, a herd of American bison, a vast picnic area, a series of hiking trails, and a charming Western-themed Gift Store. Free guided tours are offered year-round at the William S. Hart Museum. In addition, the museum also offers monthly Spanish language family tours, so everyone has an opportunity to learn about Santa Clarita’s Hollywood roots. So bring the family and come on out and experience Southern California history as you connect with nature, history, and Hollywood, all while experiencing the life and legacy of the legendary William S. Hart.
