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.

I love this place. It will always have a memory for me of me and my father going to it. It is located next to the Family History Library. It has great history not on just the LDS members but of Utah. It is fun for the kids to do some activities and see what life was once like for... More

https://history.lds.org/section/museum?lang=eng follow this page to see when they will reopen. This was a great museum for years, but then the new curator started rotating the art collection. I always liked going in there seeing the same "Mormon Impressionist" paintings but those have not been on display for about five years? Worth a visit!

This museum has great exhibits and fun activities even for kids. It is a great way to learn about the mormons and the church past. However do not expect it to be all accurate the mormon church alters a lot of its history to be more "friendly" to the current beliefs and appearance of the church. and that is what... More
