Owner description: 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.

Really enjoyed this stop. Knew all the old westerns the sets were from, got pictures in front of them. Quiet and free parking. Worth a stop, wonder around the gift shop.

We didn't know most of the old westerns the sets were used for, but it was cool to see. Would have been nice to show some of the clips from movies that the sets were used for to see how they appeared vs being here.

What's more fun than posing in front of old movie sets with your camera set to black and white eh? Ok lots. But it is good fun. It was quiet when we arrived about 3pm and we spent about an hour here including a browse in the shop. There is free parking if your driving through or its walkable if... More

Silly stop in Kanab. Store has lots of good stuff if you like stuff.. Museum is a little rough but fun for photos. Worth a quick look. Drop a couple of bucks in the donation jar.

Free, although donations are requested. This takes about 15 minutes. The sets have been salvaged and reconstructed on site. It's interesting. Make sure you watch the short video in one of the cabins. I'm sure the store in front of the site is how they make their money.

The reason this gets an excellent on my review is for the fun factor. The old sets are great and fun for photos, but the best is if you get there when a tour group has come in. The night we strolled into the place a German tour group had just finished their dinner there and were gearing up for... More

If you are in Kanab and have any interest in classic Hollywood western moves, the Little Hollywood Movie Museum on Highway 89 as you are coming into town from the north is a must see. It is a small but charming and fascinating little museum with sections of original movie sets on display in the yard behind the main building.... More

Its interesting in the fact that they have salvaged old movie sets. What is disappointing is that they are all decrepit and decomposing. It was free and a good tourist trap and is worth going to if you need a stop to stretch.

Kanab was a great town, our favorite in UT. The museum was interesting as we are both Western fans and most were from our era.

We didn't do the dinner and the show so that might be better, but just going and looking on our own was not worth it. If you want to go plan on 30 minutes to see the whole thing.
