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

This is a unique pioneer house kept in the decor and furnishings familiar to that time period. If you are interested in some history of Salt Lake City it is a nice place to visit and very convenient to downtown. Very close to temple square and the downtown shopping mall.

Yes, the guides share their religious views but the house is so worth seeing. Look at the stairs to where storage of records were kept. It is more like a ladder. So steep and narrow. Loved the clothing from the era. Lots of original furniture.

This restaurant / cafeteria serves working lunch for people who work down town. If you are in the city center, and want good food, fast, in a convenient setting, and a remarkable venue, this is the right place. The entrance is along the West side off a small walkway. Find it, it is worth it.

Having struggled to find the way in we were a little worried at first as the guides were Mormons and I guess we thought they may use the tour to push their faith on us. They were really nice young girls one from Hong Kong and the other from Brazil. The walked us through the house and offices of Brigham... More

Very disappointing, not a lot of information or insight into Brigham Young. Some of the rooms have been beautifully preserved/recreated but this is undermined by the fake vinyl walls and other modern touches. The tour has clearly been devised not for historians buffs but to identify converts which made me a bit uncomfortable.

We had a quick bite to break up our tour of Temple Square, in the bottom of the Joseph Smith Building.

We had visited Temple Square and decided to walk to the Beehive house. We were greeted by more enthusiastic acolytes, touting the word of Mormonism, who led the free tour. Some parts of the house were interesting, especially the woodwork that carried the bee theme - that was tied to the work of the community in building itself up. It's... More
