Excellent museum with many authentic items from the Goulding’s original trading post. Movie memories and native peoples artifacts. Very much recommend touring this Museum and seeing the informative films in the theater next door.

It is right there and worth visiting and it is much larger than it looks from the outside. Fascinating history with much information from trading to tourism. Entry is free but voluntary contributions are put towards college scholarships.

It was really interesting to find out how Gouldings Lodge came about and how Monument Valley became so popular for movies and the fact it was free was a bonus (although they do try and get you to buy a guide book)

Went through the museum because it was there; did give one an idea of the lifestyle in that area a 150 or so years ago. Worth a look-see.

In my hotel review I mentioned they have a gift shop and the t shirts you buy here goes to Navajo Education. The shirts are really nice and you will not find them anywhere else. Support local business,

Spent a couple of hours wandering around the museum. If you have any interest in American history, it is worth sitting through the movie.

Lots of memorabilia from movies shot in this area. Price is right....free. It adds a lot to the lunch there.

Charming little museum in the original building that was the trading post and home of the Gouldings. Lots of wonderful photos on the walls and a re-created living quarters up some steep stairs. Not a good place for anyone in a wheelchair or with mobility...More
