History is FUN! Going into this building, seeing a printing press that is exactly like the one used by the original printer of the Book of Mormon made me tingle. The labor intensive work that went into typesetting is mind boggling. The large inking balls, the hand tied bindings, the pulley system that was used to bring pallets of paper... More

Glad I went . Free to all. Great parking , easy in and out of area. Everyone comes and talked to you. Great way to learn how they pull this all together so quickly. Only on for a week each year. They get a week to practice.

We went here with our extended family of 17. So much to learn and witness and I would recommend this to members and non members alike for the spirit felt here. This was one of my favorite places in Palmyra!

This was a very thorough overview of the origin and printing of the Book of Mormon as well as some excellent historic information on printing in general. Also an excellent sumary of the individuals involved in this process.

The missionaries are a wealth of information. They know so many details that are fascinating and informative. We went the week of the pageant and our missionary told us that the tour had to be shortened because of the volume of guests. I felt sort of cheated but at the end of the tour, we were able to eavesdrop on... More

I didn't think that his was going to be as much fun and educational as it was. I learned so much from what I had known previously. I now understand why books are so precious.

We loved going through the BofM publication site. Just be careful, do not park at the pizza place down the street and walk over there. They get very upsetl.

This is the site that the book of mormon was published on. It was a local printers office. It is run by the mormon church and they have presented the historical record of the publishing. This would only be known by hardcore history fans. Still – if you are big on American history – you should visit as the impact... More
