If you’re lucky enough to find yourself in Los Angeles, consider moseying over to the Autry National Center Museum in Griffith Park and check out the installation devoted to one of the greatest cowboys of our time… Michael Jackson. The Autry National Center is an intercultural history center dedicated to exploring and sharing the stories, experiences, and perceptions on the diverse peoples of the American West.

The exhibit, part of the museum’s permanent collection, showcases Michael Jackson’s devotion to Western-inspired fashion. Who knew the King of Pop was so obsessed with belt buckles? Speaking of obsessed, this is pretty much the best Michael Jackson Cowboy video. Ever.
