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

Wonderful for visit the place where the early LDS people built a temple too the Lord Jesus Christ. Very spiritual to be in the very place that the Lord himself personally appeared to the Prophet Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdery.

I'm 65 and spent half my life active in the Mormon Church. I just don't believe all it teaches anymore. I'm still on good terms with it, it's members, and my family. This earliest of Mormon temples holds a lot of history and meaning for the LDS church, but is actually owned and run by a splinter group that parted... More

(Disclaimer: I am am member of the LDS church, so the Kirtland temple has huge significance for me) We spent several hours at the temple site and touring the temple. Even though we were the last tour of the evening, the guide took his time, was eager to share his knowledge, and didn't make us feel rushed at all. Learned... More

We were given a wonderful tour by a member of the Community of Christ Church. She was very knowledgeable about the history of the early saints and the sacrifices they went to in their goal to build a House of the Lord. How grateful we are that this property has been preserved.
