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.

this is not a flashy, slick attraction but it has a certain story to tell and is worth taking 30 minutes to stroll around. The main attraction is the collection of replicas of movie stage sets (and some actual stage sets with descriptions of which movies they were in). It's a little run down - watch out for loose boards... More

Little Hollywod is mixture of buildings from old Western movie sets put into a western town setting. The fact that it is free is a big plus and they have a nice little gift shop.

Pieces of old Western sets on display with a short video shown in one of the buildings. It's no charge to visit. Good for families.

We checked this place out and found it interesting. Actual movie sets that were in the movies. Outdoors.

My 9-year-old son had a blast touring the old movie sets but I'd say we were finished in less than 10 minutes. The woman working the counter that day was extremely knowledgeable of area and provided lots of tips for our family. I'd say that portion of our visit was the most worthwhile!

The Outlaw Josey Wales is one of my favorite movies, so it was super cool to see the barn and homestead set from the film at the museum. The other exhibits were neat, too, but I was especially interested in the Josey Wales pieces!

This museum is old, rundown and physically stinky. Don't go out of your way to visit this place. If you want to stretch your legs for an hour, you're better off visiting the Animal Sanctuary and touring the animal habitats.

Stopped here with my husband and young sons who love cowboy stuff. It was a quick stop but fun to let them explore the old props. I recommend it.

It was fun to see the old buildings and stage settings for westerns, many of which we had seen and remember. We were there in the early spring so perhaps things hadn't been readied for visitors but we thought it could use some care. No fee to get in but we would have been happy to pay a small fee... More
