Surprise

It was quite a surprise to learn so many movies have been filmed here in Moab area. Not surprise from beautiful scenery. It was quite interesting to see such history!

The drive there was spectacular. The museum itself, yawn........ Lots of photos that were simply head shots of people involved in the local film industry. A very creepy mannequin that was supposed to represent either Thelma or Louise. Not very much memorabilia or props, which is what we were hoping to see. We did enjoy the on-premise restaurant.

This small but incredibly informative and entertaining collection is just 13 road/river miles upstream from Moab inside the Red Cliffs Lodge. There is a clever 25-minute video that well explains the history of movie-making in the Moab area. After seeing the museum we spent a few minutes in the on-site winery tasting room and gift shop and had a lovely... More

We loved the museum, very entertaining and a ton of info. Not sure I would have paid for it, great that it's free! So nice that it was free too! We stopped by the winery (super pretty but honestly, terrible wine) and would have made a reservation at the hotel restaurant if we'd been thinking ahead. Such an amazing veranda... More

This is a wonderful small museum inside the Red Cliffs Lodge. It gives lots of info on the many western movies that were filmed in the Moab area. The best part is that the museum is free and open to the public.

Just a pleasant few miles drive out of town you will come to Red Cliff's Lodge, which was out of our price range, but the free movie museum downstairs was not! This is open to the public all day long and features memorabilia from some of the many films made in and around Moab, Ut. It is truly an unexpected... More

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
