  • This is a great place for a quick stop to learn some well-preserved history. Personal, guided tours are offered by members of the Mormon church who work at the facility. Restoration here was well done, and the tour is excellent. Takes about an hour, and the guide will tailor the tour to your time frame if needed. Sister Walker was very kind and knowledgeable. Enjoyable experience. Thank you!
  • It was a lot of fun. A great place to let the kids get out and explore during a long car ride. The tour was well organized and had a lot of fun facts. They showed you fun games that the pioneer kids would play and sent the kids home with wooden spinners. We loved it and my kids For 2,4,6, and 7. So great for all ages.
