As a Mormon, I appreciated all the original artifacts in the museum. I appreciated learning more about the history of early Salt Lake City and the surrounding area. As a person who just likes history and immigration stories, I appreciated learning about the pioneer experience....More

I went here for the second time. The first time I was alone. This time I went with six other people and everyone loved the experience. The staff are well educated and more than helpful. The museum is better than Temple Square.

It is a history of pioneers and the Mormon journey. We enjoyed the pictures and exhibits. They have a little gift shop.

If you're a history buff and want to know more about the history of Mormonism, this is a must see. Plan to spend at least 2 hours or more. Run by senior couple missionaries, very reverent and hallowed feeling in these walls. Lots of interesting...More
