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.

We stopped here on a recent visit to New York. It is a beautiful and well done exhibit of the early publication of the Book of Mormon. Much to our surprise we were able to find out a good deal of information about one of my husband's distant relatives.

There was a lot more to this site than I thought there would be. It was very informative. There is a good amount of things to look at and some fun interactive activities.

I am LDS, and was visiting Palmyra for the pageant and to see all the church historic sites. This was probably my favorite of the sites. We were there on a Saturday during pageant time, so it was very busy, but unlike a couple of the other sites, I didn't feel hurried at all by our young sister missionary guide.... More

In the age of computers, it is Interesting to learn what went into making a single book back in the day.
