No one is selling anything in here. There are some great history displays regardless of your faith. A complete demonstration of how books were made and bound in the 1800's. Three stories of displays and artifacts. Friendly guides and there is NO CHARGE.

Interesting and informative, fun to get a free replica Book of Mormon press page. My kids enjoyed it as much as I did.

The guide knew a lot of details that made the events come to life. There was all the equipment needed to do the work, and some work was demonstrated for us, and given to us to take home. Guide also told us where to see the lock on the Erie Canal, and about Sauder's store, other good things to add.

Palmyra has a lot to see and this historic publication site was excellent. There is so much history to learn and we all enjoyed it very much. We also saw the Hill Cumorah Pageant as well.

I liked the information shared about the cost of printing the Book of Mormon, enjoyed seeing how the book was put together, and the nice art work. Glad I could visit the sight.

This church historical site is all about the events leading up to and the actual printing of the Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ. The book is additional scripture used by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The tour leads you through the building with various stops where a missionary provides you with information and testimony.... More

This was truly a place for the faithful LDS member to visit. Speeches by the docents stationed at each exhibit were clearly scripted- including the "personalized" faith statements each made. Instead of taking the exhibits at one's own pace one is kept in a group, ushered through relatively quickly by folks who had very limited knowledge of the exhibits about... More

We are sorry that your experience at the Book of Mormon Publication Site was not what you hoped it might be. Over 1,600 visitors toured the museum the day you came and even though we try to give everyone personal attention, it is indeed very difficult on days that are that packed. Our temporary volunteers who help out on those... More

My husband, 6 month old, and I visited this historic site a couple days ago and had a great experience. The tour was quick and to the point, with great disays I accompany. Included an elevator that was easy to take my stroller up the 3 flights to continue the tour. I especially loved the last room with a bunch... More

This site is worth the time to visit. It is neat to see how the Book of Mormon was published using the tools and technology of the 1800's. The guides do a wonderful job at showing the building and answering questions about what happened.
