4.5/5 based on 3,200+ reviews on the web
Bustling Temple Square is home to a number of tourist attractions, including a large complex owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The Family History Library, the largest genealogical library in the world, is a favorite stop. Here, you can delve into your ancestors' past. If you are not a Mormon, you cannot enter the Salt Lake Temple that dominates the square, but you still can explore the grounds and admire the exterior of this striking, 19th-century structure. Pop into the visitor center to see a diorama of the inside of the temple. Learn more about Mormonism at the Church History Museum, home to a large collection of Latter-day Saint artifacts and artwork. Approach a missionary or volunteer docent for a free tour of the square.

  • Culture, history, and beautiful sites! Temple square it a wonderful place to visit. During the Christmas season, the whole place is beautifully decorated with lights. All year you can enjoy the sight of the gorgeous LDS Salt lake temple, the well kept grounds, and be within walking distance of many other nearby restaurants, shops, and historical places.
  • I love the Mormon people. They are all so nice and the sights here are incredible. It just feels good here. The Mormon Tabernacle choir is very moving as well. My wife and I go to their concerts very often. Free and very incredible.
  • This is a Must See for anyone visiting Salt Lake City. I'm from out of town and decided to spend a few hours in Temple Square. There's so much to see! The temple itself is beautiful but not open to the public. But don't let that discourage you! The Convention Center is beautiful. They offer free guided, private tours. Our tour guide was great! She was friendly, knowledgeable, and so funny. We learned so much about the gorgeous Convention Center but also about many surrounding landmarks. Also, the History Museum and Visitor Centers are very interesting and packed with facts, short videos, and period-clothed reenactors. And we saw all of this on a Tuesday!
  • Very peaceful and beautiful. Great place to catch Pok√©mon too! Lol especially the dragonites. . Great meeting place if u want to walk around.
  • Great place to walk around, very well kept and is very relaxing. People here are always friendly (sometimes too friendly, if you don't particularly like talking to Missionaries, haha). It's also a great place to catch Pokemon!
