We managed to observe the beautiful grounds outside without any interaction with the church. If we had more time it would be worthwhile to make it through the visitor center and learn more.

Nice place to walk around to see some local history. The pioneer heritage in the area is amazing. Make sure to go visit the other historical sites. Cool to see.

Non-Mormons are not allowed inside the temple, but the exterior appearance and well maintained grounds are worth a visit. The visitors' center gives good information on the history of rhe Mormon church in the area but is not a "must see" unless you're particularly interested....More

I work in the Phoenix Temple and the answer there is "no", they will provide names. However, St. George may do things differently. Also, their schedules may be different. You may want to check for information on their... More
