This is well worth a few hours of time, particularly since the Lodge provides access to it free of charge! Although I'm not a movie buff, it was really fun to find out how many of these western movies I'd actually seen that were filmed in this area. A well done video is shown continuously that features short clips of... More

It’s a very small museum inside the Red Cliff Lodge (see separate review). If you are in the area already, do stop by. But don’t go out of the way especially for it. The Lodge is on the premises of the George White Ranch, the man credited with creating Utah’s Film Commission and giving it its best to bring movie... More

It has been a year since we visited the Moab area but we still remember the Moab Film Museum..The museum is small but really worth a trip to see,. A short 15 to 16 trip outside of Moab on one of the most beautiful roads we had ever seen. The views along the river and the colors of the cliffs... More

We enjoyed the drive along the cliffs to reach the museum. On the ride back, the sun was setting so we got an even better show. The hotel personnel are welcoming. The museum is free and on the smallish side. But the 30 minutes you'll spend there are fun. The hotel bar is a great spot to enjoy the river... More

This is worth a stop! We didn't stay at the Red Cliffs and we warmly welcomed to visit the free museum. It's downstairs from the main lobby. Took us only a half hour to walk thru and see all the different films (not just Westerns) like Thelma and Louise and Back to the Future that were filmed in the area.... More

In the basement of the beautiful Red Cliffs Lodge, this tiny film museum showcases posters, photos and artifacts from many movies filmed in this area. John Wayne figures prominently and more modern movies include: Back to the Future 2 and 3, Forest Gump, Thelma and Louise, Austin Powers and many more. I am not sure it would have been worth... More

Left Moab to go to Denver along this route. Heard about this stop from a fellow camper! This museum is terrific. It is in the basement of the Red Cliffs Lodge. It has quite the collection of memorabilia from all of the events that used that region (Moab to Monument Valley) for films, commericals, advertisements, music videos, etc.. There are... More

Very interesting film museum. Brought back a lot of memories. I did not know so many movies were filmed in this area. It also reminded me of some movies & tv shows that I used to enjoy & had forgotten about. I wish some of these show were still on instead of the reality junk that is on now.

Small 2 room museum with local film memorabilia. It's worth a quick look if in the area of the Red Cliffs Lodge. It's interesting and free, so no complaints. The Castle Creek winery is a short walk across the parking lot.
