Spend some time learning about the "pioneers", their lives and about the LSD (Mormons). Volunteers will showcase items and answer your questions.

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.
