“Beautiful!”
Reviewed 16 September 2013

The people there were very helpful and friendly. Good to answer all of our questions. We were able to drive up to the top of Hill Cumorah! It is a steep hill, so we were very glad we could drive up to it.

“Okay”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

The visitor's center is located in the same woods as where the tablets were found. If you want real history you should visit the farm instead.

Thank you for taking the time to review your visit to the Hill Cumorah Visitor's Center. As there are four historical sites within the area, we invite you to visit each one to experience the piece of history that occurred at that site. The Visitor's Center is focused on providing a historical overview of the area, including films and self-paced kiosks. If you have the opportunity to stop by again, we invite you to enjoy them at your leisure.

“Beautiful visitor's center”
Reviewed 21 August 2013

Aside from the visitor's center in Salt Lake, this one was wonderful. The information offered here as well as the assortment of film you can watch kept us here several hours. The path up the hill was well kept, and it was nice to walk through the woods. If you're in the area, you definitely want to visit here.

“Great intro to an important historic site”
Reviewed 16 August 2013

Whatever your views on Momons, this site is worth visiting. The visitor center is well staffed and the AV programs are interesting. Nobody will try to convert you, but they are happy to answer any questions.

The hilltop where the angel Moroni delivered the gilded tablets is reachable on foot or by car. It's beautifully maintained and worth a look.

The guides, both Elders and Brothers / Sisters are ver warm and welcoming.

Very well maintained, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff. In addition to the visitors center building, the grounds are expansive and well maintained. Be sure to get out and walk the grounds while visiting.
