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.

This is a must visit for any LDS visitor and a very interesting and fact filled stop for any non LDS visitor. You are shown and taught how a book in 1829 is published. It was a rather monumental task. The particular book you which was published here is the very first edition of The Book of Mormon. The site... More

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.

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.
