“Rich Variety of Artifacts”

Attraction details
Reviewed April 26, 2013

I have taken fourth grade students on field trips here for twenty years. With a written scavenger hunt, available from the docents upon request, school-aged children can focus on specific displays as they peruse the four floors and adjacent double-floor carriage house. Adults are fascinated by the amazing variety of artifacts from pioneer-period glasses to the carriage from which Brigham Young declare that the Salt Lake Valley was "the place." There is nothing amazing about the way artifacts are displayed--just rows of glass cases and glass-walled rooms with furniture and mannequins in costume. This is a great place to do period research and the volunteer docents are very accommodating. This is a "must see" when you are on Capitol Hill. Admission is free, but you are welcome to leave a donation or shop at the little gift shop.

If you are interested in Mormon artifacts or in finding Mormon family histories, this place is a wonderful place to visit. Close to the Utah Capital, it is superb museum and easy to tour.

This museum is a couple blocks north of Temple Square and houses many artifacts of history along with a small research center. I found many documents relating to my ancestor. The staff was extremely helpful.
