The various memorials and plaques provide a great reminder of the sacrifice that the Pioneers made to settle Salt Lake City. It was both interesting and saddening to read of the hardships and trials that they had to go through to find their promised land.

If you like Historical places and Old fashion treats this is the place. Lots of old cabins and buildings to tour. A few of the buildings offer interactive old time activities. From playing old time games to making a craft or washing clothes on a washboard. They have animals to pet and beautiful grounds to explore. This is a great... More

This is a quaint location with quite a bit for young children to do. The addition of the splash pad was great. The older play equipment, particularly the wooden train playground, is poorly kept and there are loads of protruding nail heads that will gouge your kids' knees. After two bloody incidents, we pass on the old playground altogether, which... More

We love going to This is the Place, for good old Pioneer fun. Great exhibits with the animals, couple of splash pads, fun games. It's really tailored to kids 11 and younger, but our teens did have alot of fun with cousins.

We took home several items. Better yet, on our second trip we found the Heritage Village. We went during Christmas season and heard the Heritage... More

We got to see the beautiful Carole's during Christmas but the village is a great attraction for families throughout the year! The gift shop is even terrific!

As said in the title, we were too early. There were no staff yet early June / end May. But we did get to walk the grounds and enjoy the area. it was very interesting to read all about old days and see how they lived back then. If you have time, I'd recommend stopping by.
