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.

Wonderful little gem hidden and off the beaten path (at least for us, Italian tourists whose guides never mentioned its existence). We got into the main store to browse around and enjoy a nice cup of tea (the lady who made our drinks was extremely welcoming and kind) and then decided to have a look at the outdoor museum. What...

Situated on the edge of the town, the gift shop and museum are well worth a visit, particularly if you are a Western movie buff. Good for photographers too. The 10-minute movie on show gives a good history of the area's use in Western movies over the years. The gift shop does not seem over-priced.

This is reminiscent of typical US road trip side shows. It's free so no risk and is a small collection of old film sets. You only need half an hour to enjoy this quirky place and you learn a little about Kaneb and Hollywood

The museum is outdoors, out the backdoor of the gift shop. It's like an old western movie set. I suppose some people would find it interesting, but we got bored and left within a few minutes. There were a few mannequins that looked like they were supposed to be a joke or something.

The museum is free and has a nice shop for souvenirs. The movies sets are neat and can be interesting if you are into old western movies. It still needs more restoration work but definitely has potential. This place can be skipped though if you are on a tight schedule.

Interesting, typical touristy store. The museum was ok, really more interesting to walk the main Blvd in Kanab and read the Little Hollywood plaques and play Pokémon.

We didn't even know this was here until we stopped at the rock shop out front. Amazing rocks, but overpriced for my budget. Anyway took a few minutes to look around the museum which is cool if you like old movie sets and it seems like many have been filmed in the area over the years. It's by donation behind... More

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

Free, self guided tour via a DVD. Sets from western tv & movies inluding "The Outlaw Josey Wales". Located behind a huge gift shop - outside, no a/c.
