This is an incredible historical museum. It has been carefully restored to the original state and the whole building tells a story. As guests, you get to follow the process of printing a book in the 1830's. It's well done. Allow about 45 minutes in the museum, there are guides who will take you through and it is handicapped accessible.

While LDS are familiar with the story of the BOM, the site has been restored to its original simplicity. There is a nod to present day with an elevator that opens the ability to visit for everyone. Lots to be learned about the printing business, as well as technical trivia. Worth the visit for believers and not.

This is a well created and presented site of what printing and a bit of what life was like back in the day. It's no longer all original but much of it is and has been lovingly restored to near original state. The one drawback is not a lot of hands on, more look but don't touch which is understandable...

It was really interesting to walk through the process of book printing and publishing in the early 1830's. The guided tour was good; the children were engaged enough to learn and understand

We were warmly welcomed when we toured this site and received a wonderful insight into the publishing of the Book of Mormon and the state of the art of publishing in the early 1800's. There is an elevator to reach the upper floors that makes everything very accessible and the missionaries are very considerate.

Great museum, really helpful volunteers, nice tour. Families will enjoy learning how books were made in the 1800's, history buffs will learn about the publication of the Book of Mormon. Great place for people of all ages and religions! I visit every time I'm in Palmyra.

Whether you are a Mormon or not, the EB Grandin building is a well-preserved historical site in Palmyra. Tours are run by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints but the tour is really just the story of the publication of how the first 5000 copies of the Book of Mormon came to be. They have the tour set... More

The missionary that I visited with was a family member of the man who helped the Church acquire much of the property that the Church now owns in the Palmyra area. He had some great stories to tell.

This tour was very informative. Would do it again. We did allow an hour to do the tour. We finished in about 50 minutes, they can adjust to how ever amount of time you have.

Great tour! The missionary, Brother Child, who showed us around, gave us so much information. We could imagine what it was like and see how much work went to putting the Book of Mormon into print. So laborious! I always knew translating that sacred work was a huge endeavor but didn't appreciate how the work and miracles carried right into... More
