It was really interesting seeing the house it has a neat upstairs loft that has basically a ladder going up to it. The missionaries leading the tour are very energetic and we were impressed with their ability to answer our questions since they were so young and English was not their first language. The tour was quick but the house... More

The house is set up as it was when it was used in the 1800s. There are sister missionaries there to give tours and answer questions. During the summer and Christmas time, they only let you tour the bottom of the house, but you can see the upper level during the "off-season."

Even though the age has been lowered for Mormon kids to be a missionary right out of high school, I wish they could have been provided a few days of history lessons. Everyone knows Brigham had many wives, some think over 50 so there was no reason to try to pretend otherwise. I asked about the Lion House next door,... More

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

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.

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.

The views are amazing and houses built 2000 BC? Amazing! There is no mortar, just careful stacking on stone...
