The free Little Hollywood Movie Museum , a 501 (c)(3) tax exempt non profit, exhibits a collection of actual movie sets as the centerpiece of its exploration of how the sleepy little town of Kanab became the back lot for movies like The Outlaw Josey Wales, Planet Of The Apes & Stagecoach and a haunt for Hollywood stars like Frank Sinatra, John Wayne, Charleton Heston, Clint Eastwood and more recently, Kiefer Sutherland and Willem Dafoe. Both on the big screen and on TV in such classics as The Lone Ranger, Gunsmoke and Lassie, Southern Utah defines the way we see the American West. The Museum is set behind Trading Post of the West, a gift shop focused on Made in the USA merchandise including fair trade Native American Arts and Jewelry, Stetson Hats and Abilene boots. From fine gifts to fun souvenirs Trading Post of the West offers a great selection at fair prices. There are big clean restrooms, snacks, drinks and a picnic area. Kid and pet friendly. Whether you have 15 minutes or over an hour, it's a fun place to stop.

Not worth your time. Old and forgotten movie props. Mostly junk.Only time I found interesting was the building from The Outlaw Josie Wells was there and it's made of fiberglass.

If you are in town with nothing to do, this place is worth a look, especially if you staying in town because it's likely an easy walk since the town in so small. I wouldn't go out of my way to...

The host is awesome and really seems to know a lot. It was fun to watch him interact with the other guests. He was polite and professional even when a tour guide wouldn't listen and follow instructions. The host makes sure that everyone is taken care of and has a good time.

This is a great little museum, just the right size for a morning tea/lunch/afternoon tea stop. The museum creates an identity for the little town and it makes it stand out from the many other little towns we drove through while travelling from the east side to the west side of America. It has a slightly run down appearance but... More

The meal prior to the acting out a movie scene was western BBQ and the trimmings. The quality was quite acceptable. The movie experience was probably better suited for children than adults although adults are required for the story line. Our grandchildren enjoyed it and like the pictures of themselves in frontier dress.

I was born in the 50's and raised on Saturday morning cowboy shows and loved watching Western Movies. Its now 50 plus years later and I still can't pass up a John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, Jimmy Stewart of Randolph Scott western on TV. We stumbled on this museum after breakfast at Houstons down the street. The Museum is in the... More

Wasn't sure what to expect as the first thing I encountered was the ever present gift shop. But exiting that and getting around back I encountered a number of movie set buildings. Looked a bit skimpy, but then I found the video which explained the context of the buildings and also the movie activity that has occurred in and around... More

This "museum" is touted as a museum of Hollywood movies. It is really a souvenir stand with some old buildings in the back. The buildings are interesting, but not impressive. Would not stop here again other than to use their clean restrooms.

If I had to pay to get in I would have felt cheated. They had a nice video to watch telling about some of the western movies that produced in the Kanab area. A lot of the old facades that they had were in pretty poor condition. It would have been nice if there had been more in the way... More
