Pioneer Memorial Museum reviews
This museum is quite interesting and had so much more in it than we anticipated. There are several stories and everywhere you turn there is another room to explore. I read one negative review here...

I'm not Mormon and this place is really cool. If you simply like history, especially Utah history, you'll enjoy the Daughter's of Utah Pioneers museum. I lost myself for hours going over the seemingly endless amounts of artifacts. So many random knick knacks that give a good picture what life was like back then. It's totally free to visit as well. I would recommend the Daughter's of Utah Pioneers museum to any and all.
Wow! I can't believe how much there was to see here! I attended with a 4th grade class and the museum kept the kids' attention as well. There was a fun scavenger hunt to do where you can search to find items and mark them off like a Bingo game. The kids were seeing cool stuff all over the place and yelling to each other to come see. "Look, a top hat!" and "look, an old violin!" were some of the phrases I overheard. A tiny sampling of the items there include clothes, wagons, toys, quilts, furniture, genealogical books, old Bibles, weaving looms (one was Emma Smith's), sewing machines, an old fire engine, the golden spike, an old camera, and neat portraits. There are portraits covering the walls of the stair wells. We imagined that the images moved like in the movie Harry Potter. It brought those pioneers "to life." Needless to say, the experience was interesting, educational, and moving. What a legacy those pioneers have left for us!
