  • We arrived at 3:15pm under the impression that the museum closed at 5pm. The museum website, other online sources, the sign on the door and one of the volunteers had the same misinformation. The museu...  more »

  • This is a fun museum for an hour or two. They have a TON of stuff that is piled up so you can browse through interesting pioneer artifacts. The building is cool and the staff was really nice and willing to answer questions (but mostly they leave you alone - which I like).
  • This museum is impressive in the amount of artifacts displayed, almost overwhelming, in fact. There are 4 floors in the main house and 2 more in the carriage house. They have many amazing things, however most are simply displayed with only the item's name and date. There are very few interpretive signs which is too bad as the pioneer's stories are so incredible. Not a place many kids would like.
  • 4 levels packed with pioneer artifacts and information. For being free you could do a lot worse. Need something to do on a Saturday in winter? Go check this place out. It's quite the experience, and you and your kids will learn a ton about Utah's interesting and faith-filled history
  • Great Place for those you love history! Unfortunately it closes at 4pm, it would be appropriate to have it at least until 7 for those who work to be able to pay a visit!
  • It's got a lot of cool, old stuff and spooky old portraits inside. They recently changed the hours so that it's only open until 4pm instead of 5pm (at least on Saturdays), so we only ended up with about 30 min to visit. Otherwise, very good. No entry fee.
