This interesting museum lies west of the Tabernacle, across the street, and so gets overlooked by many visitors to Temple Square. It contains artifacts from the early and more modern history of the LDS church, including the console of the Tabernacle organ from 1901 to...More

If you start with the film, it will give you a good idea about the Church and it's history to then follow through the museum. Additionally it is a unique theatre with a wrap around screen and audio, you kinda feel it's happening around you....More

This museum does not take very long to walk through but it tells the story of how the Mormons got here and is worth learning about. You can either use a guide or walk through at your own pace. Love the history.

If you are Mormon or have an interest in the westward expansion, this place is right next to temple square and is quite interesting. If you are interested in genealogy and the pioneers, this whole block is for you.

The building sits right on the corner and easily accessible if you are walking Temple Square. We did not go inside as the door was locked when we visited.
