An excellent place to learn history and have a spiritual experience. It's a place I enjoy going as a teenager and adult.

The presentation by the missionaries here is interesting and inspirational, and best of all brief. We enjoyed the visit, which allowed us to see the history that we have heard about in Sunday School for years.

Whether you're Mormon or not, this little museum is interesting. It is the jail where Joseph Smith was incarcerated for a time. Touring the place, you'll learn about Mormonism and the history of its beginnings.

A very nice interesting history stop. Lots too see and learn about for the jail history. If you like that sort of thing, you'll really enjoy it.

The Liberty Jail is a very enlightening experience. It is a sad story in part, but a very spiritual story, as well. The tour guides are excellent and the recreation of the historic site is wonderful

Plan on about 30 minutes. 15-20 for an opening presentation. 10 minutes or so to see the jail and listen to a small presentation in there.
