  • We saw the great exhibition space devoted to the first voting women in the country in February--such a great opportunity to see how far we've come!  more »
  • Oh my. Always something to see and do here. Great activities for the whole family. Wonderful church history exhibits. Be sure to view the First Vision video and the exhibition of the Smith Family.  more »
  • This is a superb place to go to learn about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The ground floor of the museum walks you through the first years of the church. There is a short video of Joseph Smith's first vision. The film is projected on a panoramic curved wall. You feel as though you are right in the middle of the forest. Very respectful depiction. Lots of fun activities for all ages. The upstairs has a gallery with artifacts and information on each of the modern day prophets. The other part of the upstairs has a changing gallery. This year there is art from the worldwide art competition displayed. Truly talented pieces of art! We try to visit every summer when we are in Utah.
  • My family and I absolutely loved this museum and the shop. We loved the 3D effect of seeing the first vision. My kids loved they got to participate in a "printing" of the first copy in the Book of Mormon! Just a great experience. I liked how the museum is spacious because I suffer from panic in too close quarters. Open, lovely, and we felt the spirit. Great staff!
