  • I had a really lovely 2 hrs at the museum today, beautifully designed space and thoughtful introduction to the history of the church. You won’t really get the history of Smith (fraud) or understand...

  • An incredible experience for anyone with a love of church history. There have been many wonderful improvements over the last 5 years. The crowning jewel is the new first vision experience. It's a theater with a panoramic screen, and it sucks you into the experience of Joseph Smith. The amount of artifacts from church history is also staggering. There is a great area for kids as well as a beautiful art gallery on the second floor. Plenty to do for the entire family, and the best part about it is that it's all free. Any visit to Temple square should include this museum.
  • will preface this review with saying I am not Mormon. The great news is that this museum is very informative and fun to visit regardless of religious affiliation. We love history, and there is plenty of history at this museum. The museum has collections of art, artifacts, documents, photographs, tools, clothing and furniture from the Mormon Church. The museum is FREE, and well staffed by volunteers who are happy to answer any questions about exhibits. The Mormon Church has a fascinating story, and I learned a lot. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the fourth largest Christian church in America, with 6.7 million adherents in this country. More than half of its members, approximately 9.6 million people, live outside the United States. There are beautiful pieces of art, and the museum allows visitors to select two favorites. We very much enjoyed our visit!
