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 I was a little disappointed with the lack of historical content in the tour, but still...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.

I was given an in-depth history and tour of the Beehive house by an insider and so experienced what some travelers may not, although I think that this is available upon request. I was even told of the ghost stories surrounding the building (every old building has these). The food is terrific here - it's a good place for receptions,... More

The "sister missionaries" were friendly but gave very little history about the home and Brigham Young. They spent most of the tour explaining why they liked their religion. I understand, but it would have been nice to hear more history. They didn't even know who Heber C. Kimball was. That was surprising. I knew more about their history of their... More

Young was the first long serving leader of the Mormon pioneers. This was his first house and the interior has been recreated and preserved to its original style. It was later extended by one of his sons and this section is even more palatial.

Our group of 15 toured Brigham Young's Home. I was surprised at how little the "sister missionaries" knew about the owner of the home: Brigham Young! Nearly every question was met with an unclear or vague answer. It was frustrating to listen to someone give a tour who knew nothing about the occupant. Only the main floor was toured. We... More

We waited approx. 10 minutes for our tour, which was fine, but during that time it started to become a bit of an inquisition if we were members of the Temple, did we understand the teachings, what had we seen so far, liked the best, etc, then another guide appeared and started the same questioning! I politely responded "I already... More

Traveled here on my honeymoon. It is a normal Victorian building that has barely any original artifacts. They have ones from the time era but not many from Brigham Young himself.
