Not as impressed.

Kids and I explored this house but we weren't as impressed with it as we were Temple Square. We truly enjoyed the organ recital and gardens.

As interesting as it was to see a part of history, I was very sad at how carefully crafted this entire "tour" was. I understand that the LDS faith does not like to acknowledge the polygamy aspect of their history, but I do not think it is that much of a secret. The whole tour is set up to give... More

I was excited to see the house and was interested in learning about the structure and the period furnishings. Unfortunately, we got none of that. We were ushered from room to room with just, "this is a parlor" or "this is a bedroom." When I asked whether the furniture was built in SLC or brought with them, I received a... More

I enjoyed the tour. Free, size based on how many people come in.... they will give a as people show up as opposed to scheduled time. On the tour, they did bring up the concept of multiple marriages. That pretty much opened the door for people to ask questions about polygamy. I asked several respectful questions and got great information....... More

I love to tour old houses and hear the history of the family. We got on a tour that had a number of children, and we did not get many details about the house, or that he built the house next door. It is a free tour and took less than 30 min. The sisters, young missionaries who lead our... 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.

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, but most isnt too bad. You are really eating here for the experience of eating in an old, famous, pioneer home in the heart... More

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
