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.

It was fun to see the print shop where the BoM was printed. The shop is now a building inside a building so you can see how they moved the prints from one floor to another. The original exterior is also visible on the 3rd floor They have original artwork and you can see step by step how the BoM... More

The senior missionary that conducted my tour was so knowledgeable about the history of the building and process. Spend nearly an hour and half going floor by floor as he explained the process itself and the event leading to the publication of the Book of Mormon. Amazing!

Great tour of the E.B. Grandin building and the process of printing the Book of Mormon. If you want to learn more about the Book of Mormon or learn about the process they used to print books in the early 1800s you should take the time to visit this site. Tour guides are happy to share their knowledge.

Excellent tour of the E.B. Grandin building and the process of printing the Book of Mormon. A lot of time and effort has gone into restoring this interesting building. I highly recommend this tour.

This is one of our favorite places to visit in Palmyra. Not only will you learn about how the Book of Mormon was published, but history on the Palmyra area & the Erie Canal. Fascinating information & the spirit is very strong! :)

This was a great experience to actually be in the place where the Book of Mormon was originally printed. The guides were very well informed and entertaining as they explained a lot about the history of the area around this time. There were a lot of visitors there the same time we were, but we didn't feel hurried or unwelcome.... More

Being LDS this was a very special site to visit. The gentleman giving the tour was very informed on printing techniques from that time period. I loved some of the stories he told and actual demonstrations on the original equipment on how newspapers and books were printed.

We enjoyed seeing the old Book of Mormons, and printing press. I am glad we didn't miss this. They had an elevator, so we didn't have to worry about climbing stairs! It was small, but had everything true to it's time period. We appreciated that.
