This is an interesting museum, whether you are a member of the LDS church or not. Several displays and artifacts show the impact of the church and leaders throughout history. And, it's free.

We have nothing against the Mormon movement but must observe that the history the Church wants to present definitely "guilds the lilly", but only by omission. This museum will give you a well presented account of the history of the Mormon movement, and in particular,...More
