We took the short tour of the house. Two very sweet missionaries gave the tour and tried very hard to make it an enjoyable experience and they did. No aposiliting other than telling their testimonies. The house is an icon in Salt Lake City. I can remember visiting as a little kid. It is free and is a powerful visual... More

As far as historical houses go, this one is pretty average. However, when in Salt Lake City, one has to visit a place of the local legend It is free and staffed with volunteers (as many places in SLC). One note though, their tour around a house is very minimal with historical details and anecdotes from Brigham Young's life and... More

I enjoyed seeing the period pieces and the craftsmanship - the carved bees in the woodwork, the painted dining room - was just stunning. While not Mormon, I also enjoyed seeing the displayed Book of Mormon and seeing a glimpse of how Brigham Young and his family lived. However, our tour only allowed us to look in about 8 rooms....

Bees and beehives snuck into the wood work. Great tour guides work house info and church history and religious beliefs into tour. Very interesting. Give yourself about 30 mins for the tour! An indoor bathtub, lovely furnishings, time period technology like a pedal sewing machine. House is walking distance from temple square.

Much ado about ....well not nothing. Good history, nice "artifacts" and good stories, but truthfully the entire tour could have been done in about 10 minutes without the sale of "how we become Mormon" by the volunteers. If you're patient and interested in not-so-old history, this is a cute...FREE...tour. Just don't expect the kids to be interested.

I was the only one on my tour. The two missionaries were adorable and did their job very well. Not all that much to see but it is interesting to have it all explained by fervent believers

We were surprised this place was open on Sunday-- in fact you can take a tour up to 8:30 pm. Young friendly missionaries lead you through the house and explain the history and basic tenets of the Mormon faith. You can get a free copy of the Mormon Bible at the end of the tour. There was no pressure to... More

Interesting tour of the Beehive house home to Brigham Young. It is free to the public and worth the time to see the interior and the interesting woodwork done by Brighanm Young.

we were intrigued by the beautiful exterior and well manicured gardens facing the road but not prepared for a heavy "sell' as you we were led through a small part of this historical home. A short history of the religion is shared by young female members.

If you love antiques, you will love viewing the rooms in the Beehive House. The LDS missionaries provide tours of the room with lots of interesting information. The tours are free. They no longer do the upstairs bedrooms, so it is main floor only.
