“Interesting history!”

Goulding’s Trading Post Museum.
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 22 July 2017

The Gouldings arrived in Monument Valley after their marriage in 1923 and the museum highlights their years in the valley, first as trading post owners and then as friends of famous actors, senators, and movies directors. There is a room dedicated to Josef Muench who was hired to photograph the formations to show as potential movie locations. There is a cabin from the movie, She Wore a Yellow Ribbon, that was used on the set. You can walk through their living quarters, which were very simple. Highly recommended!

Next to Goulding's Lodge is a small, unassuming building made out of handcrafted, adobe brick. This is the original, Goulding's Trading Post. Inside, visitors will find artifacts from the time when Mr. Goulding established trade with the native Americans. Photos, artifacts, and written information about life in Monument Valley are all housed in this little building. Not to be missed.

Many hollywood movies were made here, especially John wayne. They show film most nights. Also old wets artifacts. Worth a visit

The museum (its history and contents), the restaurant (enjoy some Navajo tea!), and trading post (good rugs) were all well worth visiting

We stopped here as part of our Familys Amazing Race trip out west. At first glance Gouldings looks small and not worth your stop. BUT, step inside and you are immediately sucked into the life of the Gouldings and their interactions with the Indians. The home upstairs is very detailed and you can imagine the hardships they faced. We loved the Joyn Wayne room but were expecting more for the cabin out back. I would definitely recommend this stop!
