Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

“Old west show”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

Little Hollywood Movie Museum is a stop for the tour buses for a meal and for tourists to dress up in western garb to participate in a western show as gamblers, saloon girls, soldiers, and indian's. It was entertaining watching everyone enjoying themselves and having a group photo. We were told they have an average of 5 tour groups stopping per day.

“Chuck Wagon”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Great food, chuck wagon style, actually cooked in Dutch Ovens. What is served is pretty much what you get. But it is great. Nice movie set surrounding. It is fun to have a nice meal and then browse around the "early west".

“Perfect for the whole family!”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

My wife and I took our kids to this museum and had hours of fun! We played dress up and took many pictures while learning about all of the great movies the sets were from. The gift shop is exceptional with quality name brands in Western wear. The manager Heidi was very kind and made sure we didn't miss a thing!

“Good fun and free!”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

I am a sucker for old movie sets and basically anything that has famous history written all over it, so i came to the right place. The rebuilt movie sets look so real that you actually feel like you are in a genuine Western movie. What made it even more fun was that we watched some of the old movies of which we had visited the sets here in Little Hollywood, so we could see the Outlaw Josie Wales homestead :-)

Good fun, especially if you combine it with a walk through the motel across the street where a lot of celebrities stayed during the making of some classic movies. Also, the store that is attached to the museum is worth a visit!
