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

We went on the free tour of this house to learn more about Brigham Young and the history of this house, but as the tours were run by girls on their mormon mission, it was obvious they had been told to push their religion and beliefs, and so the history of the house and Brigham Young were secondary. Shame.

Boy I wish we had read the reviews of this place before going in. I thought we were going to get a tour of a historical house and learn some history. Instead, we were led on a "tour" by young missionaries who are on their mission. We learned precious little of the house or of Brigham Young. The missionaries were... More

We wanted to learn more about the Mormon history and see the inside of the home. We saw a sign for 10-20 minute free tour so we went in. We then realized the tour guides were volunteers on their Mormon mission. The two girls we had, from Korea and Sweden, we the nicest people ever, but the entire tour was... More

Unfortunately the tour is conducted by missionaries that seem bent on converting you. I told them I was an atheist when I entered but during the trip I got the "evil eye" whenever they started proselytizing. What you see of the house is quite beautiful but the tour is very short and little information about the house is provided. The... More

The landmark is really a gem and I appreciate the free tour and being able to see some history. The house has been redone and is gorgeous but I would rather hear the facts of the history and not the "hard sale" of Mormonism. :( I would suggest visiting but be prepared for your tour guide to try to convert...

The tour of this home is quick and free. So if you are in the area you should take just a few minutes to take the tour. Inside the home was amazing! What was so surprizing is how short all the furniture was!

This is the house that Brigham Young built, June 9, 1935. It is called the Beehive House because when the Mormon community went to Utah he said, They would be as busy as Bees". He has a Beehive built on the top of the house and also on the railing post leading upstairs. They are very unique. It was interesting... More

I truly appreciate that this landmark is free and open for tours, but I wish those tours included more history and less religion. I would haven even been interested to hear religious history, but not so much the personal beliefs of the tour guides. I was a little disappointed with the lack of historical content in the tour, but still... More

We went for a big catered party... just had a blast. The food was so good, but I can't stop thinking about the rolls with the honey butter.
