Okay cafeteria-style food in a cool historic building

So the rolls are really good, but the rest is just so so. If you are on Temple Squarebwalking around, it is a nice place to get a bite to eat. Don't expect anything too delicious... read more

Very interesting building and an integral part of the history of Great Salt Lake City as Brigham Young wanted to call it. This place helps you understand the early history of Salt Lake City and puts things into perspective. Well worth the visit.

The tour is not long (we only saw the first floor), but it was very informative. Not only about Brigham Young's impact, but also life during the time period.

The only other time I came on this tour was years ago, and I remember our group being taken upstairs and through the kitchen, which were omitted this time, due to expected higher traffic during summertime. I thought this tour was a very abbreviated one. It was still interesting, but I would have preferred to see it all since we... More

Brigham Young was so innovative. I enjoyed seeing the tiny staircase to the loft and the many other interesting details. I wish we could go upstairs, which we did when I was a kid, but there are plenty of rooms on the first floor to enjoy.

We stopped here while doing the city tour. Guided tours of the museum were undertaken by students and we tacked onto one that was just starting with this other guy.

We respectfully made it clear that we are not Mormons but were interested in learning. The missionary sisters answered all our questions and we found the house interesting. They did seem embarrassed when asked about Brigham Young's many wives and children. Otherwise all questions were answered very straightforward. The historic garden is beautiful.

We were surprised to read so many average reviews that referred to tours being led by "missionaries". The original house was extended a number of times from its original size in the 1830's, and is now quite big. The couple who took us on tour, probably aged in the 50's were anything but missionaries, and simply conducted an informative tour... More

The Beehive house is the home of Brigham Young and his family (including several of his wives) when they moved to Salt Lake and is filled with his clothing, canes, tools and family photos. I found the tour interesting (you do need to do a tour to visit the home) but less informative than I would have liked. While I... More
