About:- No visit to Gouldings Lodge is complete until you have experienced Gouldings Trading Post Museum. Opened in 1989, the museum is both a showcase of varied artifacts and a glimpse into a bygone era. Gouldings Lodge is not just a famous locale for Old West movies, but is also steeped in a rich history of trading, tourism, and culture as well. The museum is open to all visitors, whether staying at Gouldings or not. Admission is on a donation basis, donations provide for college scholarships for local high school graduates each spring. Gouldings Trading Post Museum is comprised of several different areas. The first is the Trading Post Bull Pen, which was the heart of the trading post back in its glory days. Basically a small show room, the locals would bring their goods in to trade for items available such as kitchen wares, canned goods, material and threads, and even guns. Many items such as the old scales are original. The next section of the museum is the Ware Room, which was just that during the trading post era. Surplus and supplies filled this room: bags of raw wool, crates of coffee, and saddles were stored here. Today the Ware Room is filled with photographs of the early days at Gouldings, and also pictures of local Navajos from the 20th Century. Display cases offer guests the chance to see historical pottery and other crafts from a variety of Native American Tribes. The Josef Muench Room boasts a variety of artwork and photography, principally, that of famous photographer and close Goulding friend, Josef Muench. It was Muenchs photos that Harry Goulding caught director John Fords eye with. A sampling of the Gouldings jewelry is displayed in this room, as well as some of their most personal items, such as their wedding certificate. The Movie Room was originally built as the mess hall for the crew of The Harvey Girls, today it is filled with movie stills, call sheets, posters and other items from the Golden Age of movies. Always playing in the Movie Room is a classic John Ford John Wayne film. Also of interest in this room is a detailed topographical map of the Monument Valley area, where one can identify different movie locations. The Living Quarters is upstairs and has been restored as closely as possible to how the Gouldings home appeared in the late 1940s and early 50s. After Mike Gouldings passing in 1992, the Living Quarters was filled with many of the Gouldings personal belongings. Though a simple layout, this living space was warm, comfortable, and inviting, a tribute to both Gouldings and their commitment to personal hospitality. Captain Nathan Brittles Cabin, also called John Waynes Cabin, is located just behind the museum. In actuality, it was Mike Gouldings potato cellar, where she stored her fruits, vegetables, and other perishables. When She Wore a Yellow Ribbon was filmed here in 1949 by director John Ford, this structure was used for exterior shots only as the personal quarters for the Cavalry Posts commanding officer, played by Wayne. All interior shots were filmed at Hollywood studios. A mock up of the Hollywood set is to be seen inside the cabin, as well as a vast array of still shots from She Wore a Yellow Ribbon.
