  • We took our 12 year granddaughter to The is the Place Heritage Park. Sometimes it is hard to please a 12 year old, but she loved it, and so did we! The historic homes and activities are interesting, a...  more »
  • This large open-air museum recreates a village of Mormon pioneers with its wooden houses reconstructed like at the time. Characters in uniform time staging their daily activities. This place is really informative. You can freely visit the homes and workshops. The occupants are happy to show their techniques (spinning of wool, forge, pottery, printing, Tin, etc...).

  • A great place to learn some history in a fun way. Participate in activities and see the homes and businesses as they were in pioneer times. Up the hill is just wild grassland and trees so it feels very authentic. Bonus for you Halloween lovers, they do a Haunted Village here which is a lot of fun. They set up some story and then you walk through the trails of the village and into the various buildings. All done up in haunted fashion. Jump scares and people following you. Nothing super intense but probably not for younger than teens. Very well done and popular.
  • We always have a good time when going here. The new American Indian exhibit is superb and the dancers were very entertaining. My kids had a blast panning for gold and we all had a good time.
  • Such a cool place. And it's not advertised a lot, but "this is the place" for Halloween too. They bring it. Christmas is cool here too. The Kimball Home is where we had our reception.
  • TAKE A TRAIL RIDE. . .it is worth every penny! James & Taylor were totally professional, lots of fun and very helpful. Taylor lead our trail ride, for my daughter's 7th birthday, and we had an incredible time on our one hour ride. The trail and views are gorgeous! This is an amazing addition to This is the Place Heritage Park. We look forward to future trail rides and there is no doubt we will return again and again!
  • This place surprised me. I thought it would be mostly religious history but it has so much more and is very interactive for kids. There's fresh food and gold mining and train rides. Great fun and right across the street from the Hogle Zoo
