We saw the great exhibition space devoted to the first voting women in the country in February--such a great opportunity to see how far we've come!

Oh my. Always something to see and do here. Great activities for the whole family. Wonderful church history exhibits. Be sure to view the First Vision video and the exhibition of the Smith Family.

Great little museum to kill an hour in, learning all about the origins of the Church of the Latter Day Saints. I had almost no knowledge about Joseph Smith and the Mormons when I entered and in one hour was able to learn most of the significant details of this faith community including about its growth and existence in Utah. Also was able to ask several questions of the more-than-willing-to-help volunteers dotted around the museum. Well worth a visit even if you have no interest in joining the Mormon church.

The Family History Museum in Salt Lake City is an excellent collection of paintings, historical videos, and artifacts on the early history of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Newly opened is an exhibit called Suffragettes that focuses on Mormon women being the first to get the vote in the US but then how The Edmunds Tucker Act revoked their right and how they got it back. Another exhibit just opening is entitled Temples Dot the Earth. This is a very interactive exhibit designed for children, but informative for all ages. Docents are scattered throughout the exhibit to answer questions, But you can choose how much time you want to spend exploring. Most people spend about 1.5 hours. Free, open Mon - Fri 9:00am to 9:00 pm and Sat 10:00 am to 6:00 pm. Closed Sunday. Friendly atmosphere, lovely gift shop.

Wishing to have a clearer insight into the church of LDS, I spent a winter afternoon on the manicured grounds of the beautiful buildings within the walled Mormon area. Missionary Sisters offered a complimentary tour, and graciously spoke about the different areas and their significance. The North Visitor Center housed intricate artwork and furniture, plus a miniature recreation of the new earthquake proof building that will be built during the next 4 years. The Tabernacle contained the magnificent organ with the outrageous acoustics that are famous worldwide. I especially enjoyed the Church History Museum, a two story building filled with numerous artifacts and remnants of the beginnings of the LDS Church. The journey begins with a wide open theatre film, and continues with the historical development of the Mormon movement. There are interactive displays and educational discussions. My favorite areas involved the Suffrage Women Rights and their path to voting in Utah. There is an elevator, and a lovely gift shop.
