Kirtland Temple reviews
I would have loved to have been in Kirtland around the time the Temple was built...beautiful surroundings and a slower pace of life. The tour allows one to do just that for a short period of time... more »
So much history at the Kirtland Temple. We arrived and had just missed a tour so we had to wait around for about 30 minutes which gave us time to look around the visitors center and gift shop. Tom..... more »
The historical significance was important to me. They did a great job of preservation. A bit expensive at $7/person. I would have liked more time on the tour. Our tour guide was considerate of the different groups that shared a common history, but I would have appreciated more time to browse and ask questions.
Original building, informational museum, gift shop, and $7/ person tour of the first 2 floors. Great Information offered on the tour. No inside photos allowed. If you don't know the words to "The Spirit of God", you might want to stamp at least the first verse in the museum before you go on the tour.
