You will have a beautiful and inspiring experience as you tour Temple Square. Beautiful art, music, displays, movies, people, gardens, buildings. Thanksgiving to Christmas the Square is lit up with thousands of lights as well as an outdoor Christmas Nativity presentation. Also, don't miss the Church History Museum just west across the street from Temple Square and the Family History... More

First of all I am not LDS, put another way I am not a Mormon. A trip to Temple Square is a must see for any visitor to Salt lake city. The whole premise of the settlement of this city is the idea this was the place meant for the pioneers fleeing religious persecution to settle in. The Temple grounds... More

Temple square is beautiful and has a great visitor center that tells a great message about what Mormons believe. The Geneology library has volunteers to help you get started on your ancestor search. There are other Church History Museums that are worth visiting.They decorate the grounds for Christmas with lights. You can take a horse/carriage ride around the Square.

Temple Square is the historic heart of downtown Salt Lake City and well worth your time. Beautifully landscaped grounds in any season! Many buildings are open to the general public, and all are free of charge. The IMAX movie in the Joseph Smith Memorial building (also free) is really terrific. Free guided tours are available for groups or individuals. The... More

Don't go there, you will be hounded by Mormon missionaries. They are there for one purpose and one purpose only and that is to get your name so they may follow up with you, when you get home. They're a creepy bunch with their never ending fake smile. They act like tour guides, but their REAL mission is to get... More

SLC should be named "Christmas Town" during the months of November and December. With the famous dusting of Utah snow, combined with the classic charm of downtown Salt Lake City, and the amazing light display on Temple Square, you can't beat it. Lovely grounds, always kept immaculately clean. Wonderful, friendly staff (we especially love the sister missionaries who are assigned... More

And in the summer they plant thousands of annual flowers that are just as pretty!!! There is a reflecting pool that is very pretty also! There is... More

It will be one of the best experiences of your life to visit Temple Square. If you go on a Thursday toward evening, you can hear the world famous Mormon Tabernacle Choir rehearsal, without charge. Truly inspiring.

Even if you're not Mormon visiting temple square is family friendly and fun place to learn about heritage of the LDS belief. You get insight as to why people came to Utah. It's very clean and safe place to visit with family or as single visitor. There is free tour and people at SLC temple are friendly and very helpful.... More
