Took a drive out there today and there is a sign on the door that they will reopen in the spring. The link to the website on Trip Advisor does not work.

Hollywood came to Kanab, Utah, in 1924 when cowboy star Tom Mix and his wonder horse Tony filmed "Deadwood Coach" in the area. Since then, over 100 motion pictures have been filmed in the Kanab area, attracting such stars as John Wayne, Charlton Heston, Gregory...More

Basically it is a gift shop with run down film sets in the back. I saw in a local paper it is for sale.

Very interesting to see how small an area was used for films, I love old things so I really enjoyed strolling through it, well worth the time to do it. Would do with grandkids someday! Patton’s

We enjoyed our time there. It is getting a little fun down, but still entertaining. Enjoyed one lady telling us about first time she met John Wayne, as a little girl. His size scared her to death, but he was gentle and kind.

If you happen to be in Kanab and are interested in Westerns, then this free museum is worth your time. There’s a two part 10 minute video that describes the early years of the film industry in the Kanab area, and the buildings include brief...More

First I'd like to thank the folks for preserving the movie set memorabilia in this quaint museum. Without their help, this part of Kanab history would be lost in the desert like the others. The museum itself isn't much. There are a few set facades,...More

We stayed near Kanab so we were curious what "little Hollywood" was all about. You arrive @ a gift shop and must walk through it to get to the outside museum area. A donation is appreciated. The sets were kind of corny & not well...More
