“LDS Capital!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2012

The LDS people here in Utah think that Winter Quarters or the Mormon Cemetary is the NEATEST thing. It's the "old mormon cemetary" that I grew up looking at throughout my childhood. Yes they built a visitors center. Yes they've cleaned it up but, it's still an old old cemetary...good for a walk thru to c the super old headstones. that's it.

“Interesting - even for Kids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2012

The Cemetery and the Trail Center do a wonderful job of letting you experience and understand the mormon migration west. It is very informational and a great places for kids. Lots of hands on exhibits. Good teaching of what it was like to be a pioneer.

“Well worth a visit.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2011

Beautiful little pioneer cemetery, with interesting stones and very impressive large memorial sculpture. Contains the graves of people who died during the winter of 1846-1847. Across the street is an extensive museum dedicated to the Mormon pioneers.
The displays are excellent and the staff very helpful. Located in the Omaha suburb of Florence, a formerly independent town built on the site of Winterquarters. Easily reached from interstate or main city streets. I have been there several times and it is always interesting.
