Very cool visit to Brigham Young's home in Nauvoo. The guides do a great job of speaking of spiritual things without being preachy.

This is a great place. The place where the 2d president of our church lived. U can go and tour the house and see how he lived in the 1840 is a great place to see.

There are a couple of dozen fully restored brick homes first built in 1836-1846 along the Mississippi River at Nauvoo. Each one has lessons for kids and adults that make the visit worthwhile. Many of the homes have original and period furnishings that reveal life...More

When we visited in April, the exhibits, most of them, were open on Saturday most of the day and then again on Sunday after 12:30. In the summer months it should be at least the same hours, maybe more.
