The Church History Museum is always interesting. I hadn't been here in a few years and they've added a new kids' area which my 4 year-old loved. I love the beautiful art and all the history.

The Church History Museum is beyond description. I enjoyed my trip here immensely. If you want to learn more about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and the history I recommend you visit Temple Square and the Church History Museum.

It is slightly fascinating seeing what events have led to where the Mormon's are today. It is easily walkable and the gift shop has some unique items.
