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. « less

Free entry / donation to this small studio set / museum. Busload of French tourists on site having fun when we arrived. Some good photo opportunities for the family and the large gift shop could be tempting.

Was a fun little diversion. The "movie" sets were pretty neat, the kids liked them. It didn't take to long to tour the facility, thankfully there was no admission charge. The store had a lot of nice local items for sale.

It's not huge but it's worth a look to check out the movie making history of this small and friendly town.

There was really no one to talk to there, it's ok considering the price. It's interesting, but not really that great. You won't miss anything if you don't go.

There is entertainment and a small store that is touristy. They have entertainment for tour bus folks, but we weren't on one so missed that.

Little Hollywood was a fun place to spend a short period of time. It consisted of a self-guided tour through some old time western set pieces and a short video to explain the sets and the mission. It was nice to be invited to enjoy a free tour at our leisure. Also a nice place to take some pictures.

This place was awesome - and FREE!! Out behind a store the shop keeping has collected all the left behind sets from various westerns shot in the area. We had a great time - and did I mention - it was free! We enjoyed it so much though - we left a donation.

The Little Hollywood Movie Museum is actually a big endeavor to preserve the sets used to create America's western cinematic history in Kanab itself and other locales in southern Utah. Admission is free, but donations are gladly accepted. Current exhibits include structures used in several Clint Eastwood films, the epic Sargents 3 starring the Rat Pack as well as numerous... More

This is a little western village and trading post. Lots of old cowboy movies have been filmed in the area, and so the movie sets were recycled. You can walk around and be reminded of the specific movie. One building houses a small video explaining the sets. it is a fun place to visit.

A few sets from old western movies. Some addtions were being made but not yet complete. Nice place to take pictures--jail, bars, old houses. Gift shop is quite extensive.
