After spending a day here, we were exhausted. We tried to see it all. The train (travels around the entire park) was fun and the conductor gave a good overview of the park. He recommended the Huntsman Hotel / Grill for lunch -- only choices were hamburger, cheeseburger, hot dog, chicken quesadilla, or salad. Have to admit the garlic waffle... More

We brought our own lunch, ate on a log bench under a tree on the Main Street. It was so neat to see children running around in their pioneer clothing with ice cream cones. A lady from the stables walked a young sheep right past us and let us pet him for a bit and then off they went for... More

No, I am not Mormon, but I enjoyed the visit none the less. This reminds me of a very mild version of a Mormon Disneyland--Main Street, various "areas" of the park, a train the circles the perimeter, and so on. There was great history of the church AND of the Salt Lake area. Worth a visit.

This is a great place to visit if you're into Utah history and the early Mormon settlement. It's a wonderful drive and its proximity to Hogle Zoo (along with Emigration Canyon) makes it a worthwhile trip for people of all ages. Some great views of Salt Lake City looking west are to be had, too. I went during the day... More

This is a wonderful place. Myself and my 3 young grandchildren spent the entire day. My grandchildren told me it was the best time they have had. They saw lots of pioneer homes and stores. They loved participating and seeing the sites. Each of the businesses have someone working in them and the homes have people doing daily things and... More

I really love this place. If you want a taste of history and what life was like for those who came across the plains and the Native Americans who were already here, this is a great place to spend a day. It's got activities for kids and adults. Kids can pan for gold and ride horses and see the Navajo... More

My daughter (5) absolutely loves it here. It's more of an outdoor museum that walks you through the Pioneer history of the early Mormon settlers. We are not LDS and love the history. There are lots of crafts for the kids to do and the train takes you to and from each of the areas. They have a petting zoo,... More

This is such a great experience for everyone, especially the youth. To learn and do chores, and other activities that the pioneers did helps you to really appreciate what the pioneers went through and how they lived. Truly amazing experience. Never seen or been to a place with this type of interaction and participation. Everyone should visit.

We visited on a Tuesday in late June and didn't find the park too crowded. We enjoyed riding the train around the park to get an overview of things and then walked around and visited a few of the buildings. Your entry bracelet gets you three punches/crafts; we enjoyed visiting the leather worker, some other crafts, and also a pony... More
