What an amazing presentation and friendly staff. My wife and I were blown away by how much time and effort it took to make a book at this time. We sure do take things for granted these days. Most of us can have a book at our fingertips within a few finger swipes. Anyway, visiting this place is a must.

We visited this museum in an effort to find out how the book of Mormon was published. This is a three-story building that includes a tour and short video of the coming forth and printing of the Book of Mormon. So very interesting and educational as to all that had to happen in order for the world to receive this... More

A recreation of the printing facility that published the Book of Mormon. A good tour even if just to see how books used to be made

Our guide was wonderful. The Grandin building is original and we were able to see how books were made in the mid-1800's. The folding page was a fun activity to see how precise we could be. Very family friendly place to go. The emphasis here is how the Book of Mormon was translated and printed. The guide answered all of... More

It was very interesting to see the humble beginnings of a book that has had such a large impact on a people and the world.

The site of the printing of the first Book of Mormon. Hugely important to me and my faith, but I was afraid that it would be kinda boring. I was wrong. The building is nicely restored, and the sister missionary that guided us was adorable and knew her stuff. It wa enjoyable, and inspirational. Glad we went.

This place was amazing. The visitor's center is built around the original site and there is still original ink on the walls!

Had an awesome tour with the sister missionaries who nailed every question we had - highly recommend the tour - some famous original LDS artwork - and a great pizza place straight across the road - the Book of Mormon is true.
