This place, the adjacent visitor's center, and temple, make this a must see for those of the LDS (Mormon) faith. I think those not of the LDS faith will also find historical value in visiting this site.

The site is very clean, a smooth operation: you are greeted by a Mormon missionary who escorts you around the museum. The visit begins with a 15-minue video about the Mormons and their historic trek across Nebraska in 1846-7. The missionary did ask us whether...More
