The Museum was recently remodeled and the new exhibits are very well designed and prepared. Our visit was informative and inspirational.

So much to see and do here! Great history of the LDS church. It was a pleasure to have the missionaries show us around to all of the exhibits.

Do you want to learn a little background about the pioneers who settled the valley in hopes of religious freedom? The Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day Saints History Library is a great place to look at all of the roots of the Church.

Spent day there 3-11-2017 and used mostly the reading room (which you have to watch a video and register to use). Innumerable journals, maps, directories, etc., to learn about Mormon and family history.

This definitely promotes the church's version of history, but it's a very good museum with great artifacts and interactive exhibits. I recommend an 45-60 minutes to go through it if you want to read everything.
