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.

It was so very sad, and I felt sad for Tom Forsythe. Obviously, he is passionate about this Hollywood memorabilia. I was there perhaps 12 years ago, and there was a set from Gunsmoke, complete with "Doc's" medical bag still there. There is not much...More

You could visualize a movie scene with red cliffs and indians on the hills, and cowboys at the saloon and Miss Kitty welcoming visitors. It will be fun to watch old movies and see if I can recognize any of the structures. The gift shop...More

Cool to see Outlaw Josie Wales sets, other than that, not much. Souvenir shop with some stuff out back. Free admission.

When I decided to make this a stop on the road trip I really was doubtful that we were in for something really tacky and cheesy, but after watching the 5 minute film at the beginning of the self-guided tour we actually stayed for quite...More

I am probably being a little unfair with just 3 stars as the museum is free and it does make for an interesting hour. It is good that they have gone to the trouble of saving some of the building and sets from the old...More

This place could be cool but needs some love. Should have videos of the movies filmed there. Not much "museum" -- mostly store and old buildings to walk around in.

Offered a lot of background and information. It also had great displays and authenticity. There was also a great gift shop. Overall it was very interesting and fun.

I wouldn't go to Kanab just to visit this, but we we're passing through and needed to stretch our legs. My teenager wasn't impressed, but my husband and I thought it was pretty neat. :)
