We spent about an hour here. Several rooms with different themes i.e. trading post/movies shot here/family history/family living quarters. Really interesting and makes me want to learn more about the Goudings! Don't miss the gift shop; the best around!

If you like western movies, then you should stop here and see this museum. For John Wayne fans its a must. Small museum, but very interesting and informative.

I almost passed up visiting this museum but that would have been a big mistake. Goulding's Trading Post and Lodge is a most interesting story and one must visit the museum to gain a full appreciation of its importance to the Monument Valley area.

A bit cramped and could use more space to display outstanding pottery, jewelry and other local artifacts. The apartment upstairs a time capsule. Worth the time and effort.

This is where the Goulding’s lived. It is a small museum with interesting motion picture memorabilia. Definitely, take some time to check this out.

This museum is by donation and is definitely worth a visit. It will take you 30-60 minutes - or longer if you’re a real history buff - to see and read everything. The focus is on the Goulding family, pioneers who befriended the Navajo tribe,...More
