The Heritage Village has the abandoned feel of a ghost town. I expected more of an interactive experience. The monuments are nice to see but this does not keep kids or adults involved and entertained.

The homes and buildings that have been rebuilt or refurbished are all very authentic and fun to see-there is something for all ages.

The history and monuments to the people who discovered and settled in the Salt Lake City area is impressive. We did not visit any other part of the park.

Was very pleasantly surprised with the town set up. It was like a pioneer town with many original buildings that were moved in. The whole family enjoyed it. A must see when visiting SLC! Allow yourself at least 4 hours to enjoy the park. We were there about 2 hours and didn't get to see everything. But got to visit... More

Wonderful collection of pioneer buildings restored or authentic reproductions funded by local families and businesses. Be sure to go inside each building where outfitted people portray a particular time, craft, or skill. Don't miss the native American dancing. "Gold" mining was fun for toddlers and teens. Peaceful grounds; pleasant walk. Donuts are great.

I enjoyed our visit to This is the Place Heritage Park. I only thought they had old historic LDS homes and buildings at the park (which they do) and little else but each home or building that was open to the public had a volunteer or docent in pioneer clothing waiting inside to tell you who lived there and showed...

It s a great place, the little shop and museum area. The movie was great. Walked up the back to the replicas of how they lived back in the 1800 Sweden they settled.

A great place to learn about American pioneers, and imagine how they lived in years past. This park makes it easy to imagine, and feel, how these folks lived. They have made a "mini village" from quite a few original buildings that have been moved there, or some that have been recreated to what they would have been. There are... More
