We stopped here for a nice breakfast buffet and strolled through this museum with posters and artifacts from the numerous films made in this region over the past 50+ years.

The museum has free entry being at the Red Cliff Lodge which is in a magnificent setting by the Colorado River, serves wonderful food and had a small but excellent collection... More

Again if you are at the Castle Creek Winery then do not miss this amazing museum in the Red Cliffs lodge. Its FREE downstairs and a huge assortment of movie memorabilia from the days of john Wayne and Hollywood movies that used this entire region of Moab for films in the early 40-50. This is where the famous scene from... More

This my first trip to Utah and the Moab Film Museum helped me connect the dots. Bill Gates said you can only connect dots backwards. Between Cowboys & Indians and Thelma & Louise, I grew up in the East thinking THIS is what the West looks like. Later I looked in Arizona, I looked New Mexico, but it wasn’t there.... More

This little gem in the downstairs of the restaurant of the Red Cliffs Lodge is worth the stop. You will be amazed at how many movies and how many commercials have been filmed in and around the area. Be sure to watch the continuously running film for some great highlights.

As you leave Moab going north, turn just before the river and drive maybe 10 miles along the river which is worth it just for the ride. The ranch and lodge has a wonderful view of the valley and it's a great place for lunch. The museum is free and very interesting as it tell about all the movies made... More

Easy access to an interesting site seeing within the confines of lodging stay. Located in the lower level off the hotel lobby check-in and restaurant, you may want to allow some free time to view this interesting and free museum regarding past film making history. Fun and interesting and an easy activity once you are on premise.
