Having read previous TripAdvisor reviews, I went in armed to defend myself from a full-on Mormon recruitment campaign. No such thing happened. The religious slant is felt but very, very soft. And overall, this experience is extremely well done- my children and I LOVED it. Very clever use of new technology, lots of hands-on experiences to make history come alive. A free photo and the kids get a chance to pan for gold, pump water, dress up, etc. After having gotten nickle-and-dimed at every other attraction in SD, it was a relief to come here, get educated and have fun, without anybody reaching for your wallet. A *little* Mormon propoganda, yes, but well worth the experience.
