We took the tour with our three small children. In the video it was interesting to see the willingness of Ira be so quick to follow the prophet. What a great example. Our missionary tour guide Sister Waite knew all the history and fun facts. Thanks for a great tour.

We had a wonderful time learning about the Hinkley family and seeing so many original artifacts from the 1800's. What a great place to stretch your legs and walk around and tour while traveling or for a day trip. Family friendly and full of wonderful LDS missionaries who welcome you and take you on a wonderful tour.

My wife and I stopped here several years ago before we had kids. We have driven past it at least four times a year since and never stopped. We had some flexibility in our recent drive back to AZ this summer and decided to stop and let the kids see the fort. The missionaries who greeted us when we first arrived said that we could complete the tour in about a half hour and we thought that would be great. We ended up spending about two hours touring all the buildings and the fort. The kids really enjoyed it and had lots of questions. Our guide was very knowledgable and had great answers for the kids. My wife and I thought it was very interesting as well. It was well worth the time we spent there.

Seen the sign many times and decided to go by. Surprised how close it was off the freeway. Short film then nice tour-all free. Fort restored and furnished in detail. Picnic area and clean bathrooms. We highly recommend it.

Great stop between Provo and St. George. Kids had a great time. The tour guide learned each of the children's names and made it personal to them. The best review was from an adolescent that said "It was good. Not like a museum."
