Overview

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.

We visited this while we stayed overnight in Kanab. Small museum but gives you an insight into the western movies and the building facades they used.

As a movie buff, I wanted to like this museum. The cost is free, although they ask for donations. We didn't get to see much because a group was reenacting a Western, and while we were welcome to walk through their group, we felt weird...More

If you have a spare hour, visit this outdoor museum, to learn about some of the Westerns filmed here in the past, and to see some of the abandoned sets. Who knew styrofoam could appear as large bricks?

Little Hollywood has some good movie history, but honestly, you can see it on YouTube. I had just as much fun walking around town reading the many plaques.

Several buildings/sets from Hollywood movies are kept here. Fun to look around and go into. Watched a film in one of them. Nice gift shop.

Was expecting so much more. There doesn't appear to be any maintenance done to the buildings. It is run down and we were glad that we didn't have to pay to enter.

We stopped by to see the "museum" True, there is a little set left there, but it is not very well marked, so you just walk through a dusty set of buildings. We were glad it was free. The gift shop was interesting...

It's a fun little place to visit. It's free, and small, you walk around on your own. The sets are from many different movie sets, and the souvenir store has lots to look at. There are tables and chairs outside. It's a nice fun spot...More

This was such a fun place to visit. It's amazing how they've been able to preserve some of the coolest western movie sets/props. And the backdrop of the museum is amazing as well. It took us about 30 minutes to see everything. This doesn't include...More

Several years ago Kanab was the base camp for many Hollywood movies - especially westerns. The sets were built just outside Kanab and those involved with the production stayed in town. When they finished and left, the sets were left behind. A local fellow gathered...More

I am not sure if I understood the information correctly. Is there a meal before the little play? How do we get tickets?
