We thought this would be a good way to fill in some time waiting to catch a plane. It was so much more! We really enjoyed seeing all the movie paraphenalia gathered in this museum. So many of my favorite westerns were filmed in this area! There is a short video to watch, talking about the filming in the surrounding countryside, and the movie stars who came. It was fun to see it all. Very well organized and professionally presented.

Last day we drove the Highway and decided to check out the lodge--I knew it was pricey but decided to see the views/amenities and check out the winery. We ended up spending a few hours at the Lodge and wandered around the museum and had lunch at the cookout buffet. We had the whole grassy area to ourselves and the staff was sooooooooo inviting, they loved our dog and made us feel welcome even though we weren't staying at the lodge. The museum was well done and very fun to see. I am glad we stopped and spent the afternoon! Thank you

If you drive through Castle Valley on the way to Moab, the Red Cliff's Lodge is host to the Moab Film Museum. There are displays and history of films shot in the area from the 1950s to films such as Thelma and Louise. The museum is free and the lodge is right on the river and a beautiful location.

Fun place to browse and see the way this area has been used as backdrop for movies. Starting way back before John Wayne’s westerns we see that many directors used this area including Spielberg.

The museum of western movies is very good. and the drive along UT 28 follows the Colorado River and was awarded the second best drive in america by National Geographic.

About a mile downriver from the put-in we passed the Red Cliffs working dude ranch & winery. There were about fifty tricked-out cabins nestled along the river and the place looked packed. When I was booking our Moab motel I considered staying there but decided to get a room in town and avoid a close encounter of the DUI kind each night. Plus it was pretty expensive. But it does have a FREE movie museum and $1 wine tastings and that sounded pretty cool.

Red Cliffs is known as John Ford Country and it was the place for movie people to stay when filming movies like movie director John Ford’s “Wagon Master”, “Rio Grande”, and “Stagecoach”, to name but a few.

And there have been many modern day movies filmed around Moab like “Indiana Jones – The Last Crusade”, “The Lone Ranger”, “City Slickers”, “Vanishing Point”, and “Thelma & Louise”. Virtually every river crossing you’ve seen in a western was the Colorado River in Professor Valley.
