This museum is a great way to spend the day, there are so many inactive exhibits for young and old. The 6 minute movie about the first vision was amazing, the panoramic screen makes you feel like you there in real time. So many interesting things to see and do. The staff are enthusiastic and helpful.

Our biggest problem was we only had two hours to spend there. My kids favorite part was the new movie of the First Vision. Then we spread out and spent time where we each wanted to go. I'll have to go back when I have more time.

Went across the street from Temple Square to the Church History Museum. I had heard the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints had made some changes in the building and was intrigued to see what they were. I first noticed how clean and professional the new interactive displays are. Also, the new 6 minute panoramic first vision movie of... More

I was surprised that for the size of the building there was only a section worth of history. Lots of interactive activities for children, though.

The LDS Church History Museum is a great place to visit when visiting Temple Square in SLC, Utah. Lots of displays and history about the church.

While not at all interested in the Mormon religion, it was interesting to see some of the history of the church.

Spend your money here. Spend your money here. It's all about hype with this religion. Anyone who believes there were golden plates that Joseph Smith was given by an angel and then they disappeared? Give me a break. These people are all about making money, becoming wealthy. The area is fraught with begging homeless men.

This museum is updated and very friendly to both kids and history-seeking adults. Don't miss the short film playing on the main floor. The changing art exhibit on a higher floor is worth spending some time at. A separate kids' area is hands-on and very fun.
