  • Well, it's a nice place, if you can get work around the sense that their take on history has been whitewashed a fair amount. I suppose it just felt too idyllic to be authentic. It's kind of like Disneyland for Mormons. I wish they'd made it more inclusive and less glowing. There were certainly other people here at the time, non-Mormons even, and Native Americans. Their stories were nowhere to be found at This Is The Place. I suppose it's meant to be The Place where Mormons can feel good about their past, but for this non-Mormon it was a bit much to stomach.
  • We like to visit with our grandchildren but find it very expensive. We've enjoyed the baby animals in the spring and hearing about life in the different cabins. The saddle shop was great as they got to use stamps to decorate a piece of leather. Avoid the train if you can. The whole ride is spent breathing exhaust! I keep hoping they'll switch to electric or natural gas. As it is now, it's VERY unhealthy!!!
  • My kids loved it here. I enjoyed it as well. Staff is all very friendly. They have a lot to do here. More than we could do in one visit. We will have to come back soon!
  • The ambiance here makes it perfect for a Wedding Reception to cool and calm the atmosphere after so many days of stress. The employees are cordial and accomodating. The yard was comfortable and there were no discernible insects, either. The view in any direction was great, but sunset and the city after dark were breathtaking All around, a very pleasant place to celebrate.
  • The site itself is amazing. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. It was pricier than I liked, especially for the quality of crafts we were able to make and take home. It was a really fun day though!
