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.

Nothing of earth-shaking interest, but the sets are indicative of what the times must have been like. Fun to wander around, taking a couple "set up" shots. Go with an open mind and no expectations, and your imagination will be soaring in no time.

This place is free so nothing is gonna hurt walking around it. But I was just creeped out. All B movies and nothing is really well preserved. It is really just a trap to get you to spend some dough in the really expensive gift shop!!!

The history there makes you appreciate what you learn and the staff is great! You can pretend to be a saloon girl or read about how they saved a historical set. By bringing it to you.

Stopped by this most interesting and fun place today. Greeted by helpful staff who pointed us in the direction of the Museum. Self Guided tour brought us to a room outside which had a video explaining all of the movie sets on the property. It was so much fun to walk around and see how the sets were put together, take photos, read the write ups and actually feel like you were a part of the movie itself. VERY fun. When finished, went inside and noticed a man that was the person in the video. Introduced ourselves. He was very accommodating and informative.
I would rate this as one of the most interesting and unique attractions I have been to in quite some time. When you are in Kanab...DEFINITELY stop by and see all the memorabilia!! Or, even if you are close to Kanab, make a special trip there!
