Missionary Teens give the Tour

We enjoyed the tour given by Missionary Teens from around the world. There are many original antiques... Lots of history.

Much of this house is original. The furnishings and memorabilia were interesting to see. There were 2 tour guides who took turns talking and providing information.

This is a great place to visit if you're in Salt Lake City on a budget (it's a free tour of Brigham Young's home). The tour guides are usually two fairly young female Mormon missionaries with varying fluency of the English language. (Some are native English speakers; others are not.) It's quite beautiful on the outside and somewhat accurately shows... More

This is a small house that belonged to Brigham Young, it is well decorated in period style and the missionary docents are very charming.

Loved hearing about the history of SLC first leader. The home has beautiful architecture and in all but perfect condition from the mid 19th century. I loved hearing about how they built everything.

I went on a tour of the Beehive House. Two Mormon missionaries from India led the tour. They were very informative in telling us about the life of Bringham Young and his polygamist wife and family that lived there, We saw the office, bedrooms, family living room, dining room, and more. This was a very good tour and free. I... More

Our guides were 2 of the young ladies who accosted us in the afternoon. The overtones were once again of a deeply religious nature. The rooms were lovely, but the explanation of why Brigham Young had his bedroom on the ground floor, was not convincing. Nice carvings and furniture, but the marking gauge in the toolbox was a modern English... More

I get that the LDS own this historic home, and as such they get to make the tour. The free tour was good for its price. I would have liked a longer, less proselytizing tour and would have paid for that privilege. Young was a major historical figure who merits a more in-depth tour.

There are only a few areas of the house you are able to see. There are missionarys who guide you around and are very forward in pushing the Mormon message. They leave out that Brigham Young had 27 wives and anything else that could be construed as a negative. It's hard to escape as it's a very small space. It... More
