Well worth the visit

Great place to visit for family history information. Everyone is sooo nice. No church pressure just friendly people to show you how to track down your family history.

The museum in the past has had historical information about the LDS church, an art collection and a children's interactive play area. Currently being remodeled.

The museum is being renovated and won 't be open to visitors until Fall 2015 - sorry. When I visited several years ago it was very interesting and I learned a lot.

If you've already completed a lot in ancestry.com, starting in the beginning area with the volunteers will be frustrating. Their online system turned up only a little of the info I found on ancestry in just a few minutes. I think the real meat is for those that come prepared and move to the other floors where more in-depth information... More

You can see the hardship the Mormons had to endure. It's really interesting. There are also some other interesting displays and some beautiful art displays.

Wonderful place to learn about the local history especially the pioneers and the LDS church. Just the right size of museum to stroll through in an hour or two. Toddlers would be bored.

This. Was. Awesome! We didn't have much time to visit but the lady inside took us on a quick tour of everything and I would suggest doing the same. Its not very big but there's great history to be learned inside those walls. Definitely recommend going!

I really enjoyed this museum. It is informative, well designed and really does a nice job telling the story. I also liked the sprinking of more local exhibits with art and craft by people in the area.

I travel to Salt Lake City, once a year, for my Stampin'Up! convention. I go early so that I may go to the Library for family research. Always helped by their staff with the incredible extensive library.

It was closed during our visit, but they had a nice sign in front promising what we might see in the future. In the past, I enjoyed artifacts like the Angel Moroni that used to be on the 16th Street Chapel in Washington D.C.
