I've always wanted to visit a Mormon temple. This is their first one. It's now being used more as a community center, with various events and programs, but it still affords one with ideas of what the Mormons value/how they see the world. You take a guided tour, which is a good idea. I found very very interesting the movie... More

For historic reasons its worth the trip , the temple is in great shape and has so much history to it , its also beautiful. Now as a LDS member it was a spiritual day to know the Saviour was there , the Keys that were handed down there it was overwhelming. I loved it!!!

Wonderfully restored without losing the old time feel...tour guides make you feel the special story of the dedicated people who made the temple in the 1830's. Check out the rules for behavior in the temple...we all could learn from such respect and tolerance today!

This is a part of the religious history of America. The Community of Christ maintains this site and has done a fine job of it. You start in a visitors center with a movie and then proceed to the temple where your guide shows you the sights. There is a 3 story stair climb to see all the sights and... More

There is a movie you watch before going on the tour. We loved that after the movie they open the curtains and you are looking at the temple! The tour guide takes you through the temple and explains how it was constructed and the sacrifice it took the early members of the Mormon church to build it. It is not... More

This temple was the first built by the LDS Church and remains a testament of their sacrifice. It has such a special feeling inside. It is run by the Community of Christ and costs $3 to tour. Some incredible spiritual manifestations occurred here and you will learn more of them during the tour. If you go during off season, you... More

We really enjoyed being able to go inside this beautiful building. It was beautiful as the movie presentation ended and the curtain opened to reveal an amazing view of the temple. Loved hearing the history and seeing such a key part of LDS history. We're grateful to the Comm Inity of Christ church for sharing it.
