Goulding’s Trading Post Museum. Reviews
Nice selection of items and history on the movies made in the area and how they used local Indians to actually act as Indians for the movies and how this was a local way they could make money. more »
Le musée est situé juste avant l’entrée du parc de Monument Valley dans l’enceinte de l’hôtel du même nom. Ce musée, dont l’entrée est gratuite, est très intéressant.

This museum, whose entrance is free, is very interesting. It tells the story of the Navajo and Goulding family, an entire room is dedicated to the various movies filmed in Monument Valley with continuous projection of some of them. We also did a tour at the Gift Shop of the Goulding's Lodge. Everywhere where we went during our road trip souvenirs shops there, but it is "above the rest" and definitely worth a visit. You can find beautiful handicrafts, and which held particularly our attention, it's that each item is presented with a certificate and photo of the artisan who made it!
I walked through the museum while I was in Monument Valley area. My husband had to take a business call so while he did that I walked through the museum. I really liked the movie area where it had mem... more »
Visited in Oct 2017. Great spot. Clean and practical. Reasonable prices. Wonderful people. Market has lots.Food in the restaurant was satisfactory but they can't make stew. I would go again in a heartbeat for the energy and views and lovely Navajo people!
I will not book this hotel again as they request a 30% cancellation fee. My plans changed and three months in advanced I asked them to cancel my booking. I called them and they told me that I have to pay $155.70 cancellation fee for a three days booking when I wanted to cancel and called three months in advance. Then I emailed them, and three days later I have no answer. This is poor customer service. As they have too many customers their customer service level started to degrade. In the future, I will choose Monument Valley View hotel as is better and cheaper, while their cancellation fees are just 10% and their service level is superior to Goulding's Lodge.
I have been coming here for 50 years but no more. This was our last visit. They have over developed it and the property has lost its soul and ruined the views with the new trailers that they call suites. Stay at the Monument Valley Visitors Center and support he Navajo directly while enjoying a much better ad more natural view. Food is still good, and the staff great, but who ever thought catering to the tour bus crowd and plunked down those despicable trailers should know that they have seriously degraded what Goulding once was in their greed.
Very nice place, the view magnificent! Cabins are very comfortable, cosy and seems new. If it's booked for 4 people, the price is reasonable. Just two disadvantages: the way from the reception is very confusing, even with the map they give you. If it's dark, you can't see anything, there are no signes/ directions on the road, no lamps, and a lot of cars going into the wrong way. The parking places are rather for experienced drivers.
Food at the restaurant was good. We joined the 3.5 hr tour. It was a good introduction to the place. Guide was patient and knowledgeable.
