If you are looking for information on the Mormon church and LDS history, this is the place :) No one is overly pushy and you can get the information you want. You can spend any where from 30 min to 4 hours there depending on your time and what you want to learn.

I took my kids here while on a visit to the area. We went to the visitors centers where we watched a few movies and learned more about the history and beliefs of the Mormon church. The buildings are lovely and the missionaries there were friendly and weren't pushy when I told them I just wanted to walk around with... More

For such a lavish display of a religion's testimony to their faith with the extravagant temples and lush gardens one would think the issues of homelessness and poverty would be a null point. This is not the case, once outside the gates of temple square it is not long you will encounter a homeless, destitute person asking for food or... More

Temple square provides a pleasant atmosphere for a down town walk. LDS tenets are explained as well as some pioneer history. The young ladies are willing to share information, yet not pushy.

We recently visited temple square and felt it was a very interesting experience. We joined the guided tour, which brought us to 3 sites, but not into the main temple, which is only accessible to members. The two young tour guides were nice and Temple Square was a beatiful site. They guides announced in the beginning they would talk about... More

Great place to stroll around and learn of the history of the early pioneers. It was a great place to learn about the premature Salt Lake Valley. All of the missionaries there were very knowledgeable and very nice. The Salt Lake temple was incredible and beautiful. Be sure to check out the family history center in the Joseph Smith Memorial...
