We made a detour to the Beehive on our way to Temple Square. Had a free tour with 2 LDS sisters. We saw the office, bedroom and living areas of Brigham Young. At the end of the tour you can have a free Book of Mormon. Downside, I wanted to see the upstairs....but couldn't.

Visiting Temple Square, we visited the Beehive House once the home of Brigham Young. Most rooms are open and decorated with original furnishings and accessories or very good reproductions. His actual cost is on display as are other personal articles. The guide were well informed, knowledgeable, and friendly. This is a must see site when visiting Temple Square.

If you are interested in learning more about the LDS church and Brigham Young you will want to check out the Beehive house. Don't worry no recruitment to the church just history information. The area around the Beehive house is very nice and makes for a really nice tour for a few hours. If you visit Utah and Downtown and... More

We stopped here on a whim since we were passing by. It was interesting to learn more about Brigham Young. The tour guides were very sweet and a pleasure to learn from. The architecture of the home was very interesting as well. For sure it is worth a stop.

The 'guides' don't know much about the house. More than anything, they are there to tell you how spiritual they are and give their testimony (they are missionaries). They don't try to convert you, but it gets old listening to them talk about the power of prayer. If you like history, and free, this is a good place to spend... More

My teenage daughter and I took the tour of the Beehive House on a Saturday afternoon and really enjoyed hearing about the history of the house. The house is beautifully made and the details on the woodwork were fascinating to me. It was incredible to see how the house was organized and used--very efficient. My favorite part was seeing all...

We enjoyed our tour of Brigham Young's home and offices. The tour was conducted by two young LDS missionaries who were very knowledgeable and passionate about their faith. The home is furnished with some original artifacts and many period pieces. Included in the tour are bedrooms, a kitchen, dining room and Brigham Young's office. We toured with another couple who...

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....
