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.

This is a souvenir shop with a bunch of old buildings used in some movies moved in out back. Outlaw Josey Wells house is one of them. Like I said it is free, they operate on donations, worth a stop

It costs nothing at all to walk around this mostly outdoor museum. Kind of cool to see some of the sets and artifacts from one of Clint Eastwood's movies, and see other items as well. Just try to avoid being here when one of the tour buses happens to make a stop here.

This free little museum is quite interesting. Access is through the large shop, which we found interesting in itself, especially the large 'cowboy hat' section. The museum is, among other things, a selection of buildings from western films. many of which were filmed in the area. If passing, spend a 'cool' half-hour there.

The Little Hollywood Museum is adorable! Yes they are old sets, yes some are a little cheesy but that is part of the fun of it all. Anyone who grew up watching Western Movies or the Old West TV shows will find it interesting. The displays are very hands on and make for great photo ops. If you are the... More

I'm so glad you enjoyed our museum. We love it when people let go and embrace the kitsch. That's at least half the fun of both our museum and, as far as I see it, life in general. More

There are some old buildings from film settings as Kanab is very proud that there have been filmed some movies years ago and the museum is trying to preserve the memory.

The old movie settings are a bit sparse and younger people may not even know about these movies. But there is some history here

I loved this little museum in the back of a gift shop. It has restored sets from when Kanab was a hot bed of western movie shoots. The house from Outlaw Josie Wales is particularly impressive.
