The Kirtland Temple is beautiful. It's well kept by the owners (The Community of Christ), and only a small donation is required to visit it. At the visitor centre, you watch a short video about the Temple and the Church that owns it. It's not preachy, or uncomfortable at all. The Temple itself is a place of actual history, rather...

A "Must See" for anyone interested in Mormon history and/or history of the westward settlement of our country. An absolute treasure chest of information on these subjects.

Loads of history and architecture, The Kirtland Temple is an Icon in this area. The historical value and the cemetary nearby as well as the gardens are worth a visit.

Outstanding visit to the Kirtland Trip. We had the distinct pleasure of having Ron Romig, very well respected author and archivist for the Community of Christ, lead our experience of the Kirtland Temple! The dedicated and approved building is fantastic to behold and experience!!!

Amazing building built in the 1830s. Interesting story and explanation with a small museum and gift shop adjacent. Nominal fee to enter with a short video and guided tour.

Some really friendly Community of Christ members showed us a nice video of the history and background of the community and temple building in the 1830s. After that we had a tour around the temple. Our guide was really friendly and informative, was happy to answer our questions. I found the little museum really interesting too. There is no photography... More

First off they charge $3/person. The community of christ formerly the reorganized lds church is making way too much off all the LDS people. The tour was a little cheesy and they force all the lds people to watch their video which has incorrect information in it. It's sad that the LDS church doesn't get that temple back! Anyway, the...

This area not only contains the Kirtland Temple. There are a number of restored buildings that you can tour. Start at the visitor's center and watch a short film on the history of the Mormons. There is the largest genealogical archive located here for families of the faith. At Christmastime, there is an outstanding exhibit of hundreds of Nativity Scenes... More
