Very Interesting

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.

Very interesting insight into printing in the 1800's. Educational stop that is worth the time. Easily found on Main Street of Palmyra.

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.

This is the place where the original Book of Morman was first published. They told a very interesting story of how it all came about

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
