This is a fascinating visit and gives you a look into what life was like in the early years of Salt Lake City. Guides were knowledgeable and very likable. Had pre-teen in our group who enjoyed the tour as well as the adults did!

We stumbled upon this place by accident. The grounds are beautiful and we were given a nice tour/history lesson about the building and its significance to the area. It took less than 30 minutes.

This was an interesting place to visit with a lot to learn. There is a guided tour which is enlightening however I felt very judged by both the other people on the tour and the staff as I am not from the LDS church. I lost count of how many times during the tour I was asked this question and... More

If you're into history in general then be sure to stop at the Beehive House and take the free 20-min tour of the place led by friendly Mormon missionaries. Please, just don't be surprise when these missionaries will try to "feel" if you're open to the idea of learning more about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. And... More

The missionary guides were very friendly. The visit does not take long, but is interesting. I love old furniture.

The Beehive House is known for being the former home of Bringham Young who was a leader in the Mormon church. The tour is free and only takes 15-20 minutes. It is a close walk from Temple Square. I recommend taking the tour. It is interesting to see the artifacts and how they lived in the past. The inside of... More

The Beehive House was built for Brigham Young and became the home of the first three presidents of the Latter Day Saints Church. They run regular free 20 minute guided tours, being shepherded round along LDS missionaries, who give an interesting insight into the early years of the church as well as the actual building and its contents. My guides... More

This is a beautifully kept home, owned by Brigham Young. I was married in the front parlor here. When each of our children turned 8, we brought them and their friends here for a special birthday party- given in the fashion of the 1800's. They wore bonnets or hats of the time, pulled taffy, played games that would have been... More

The free tour of the home of Brigham Young, an early leader in the Mormon Church, is short and interesting. It's free, but reservations should be made to take the tour. I was surprised that the missionary docents were unable to answer some of the questions posed by the tour participants. The tour was a combination of a historical perspective... More
