This is the site in Temple Square the missionaries do the most proselytizing. That’s ok, it’s their church and they have much to be proud of. Overall, not much original in this property, just an old house. So unless you want the sales pitch, this...More

I actually wanted to introduce the young people with me to the LDS religion, and this filled the bill. Two young missionaries, clearly chosen to illustrate the ethnic diversity of the church, gave us a tour of the house. There was some history, but mostly...More

Old house with a few preserved rooms. Tours led by obnoxiously aggressive missionaries. I went expecting more than proselytizing and left disappointed because I just couldn't listen anymore. They also didn't clear the ice from the back steps. Several of us slipped.

I would highly recommend taking this tour while in Salt Lake City. There is no charge for the tour and we found it to be rather interesting. It takes about 20 minutes to see all of the well preserved antiquities in all the rooms belonging...More

Although short, this is a fantastic tour to learn about the history of the Mormons, Brigham Young and the house itself. I had been on a city tour the day before where my guide told me you can simply walk in and get a free...More

Because Brigham Young is by far one of the most famous and fascinating figures in the history of the European settlement of the valley, you would expect a tour of his own home to provide you with some insight into his character and history. However,...More

The Beehive House is an interesting house owned by Brigham Young, complete with original furnishings and items he owned. The tour is given by Mormon sisters, and while they do a good job pointing out features of the house, they spend equal time preaching about...More

Our last tour of the LDS complex was the Beehive House, home to Brigham Young and then his son, John who enlarged the house. We were guided by sisters from California and Ghana who were sincere but not aggressive about their faith. It was interesting...More

This is one of the homes of Brigham Young and located at Temple Square. There are docents, missionaries from the church, that give a guided tour. Only a few rooms on the ground floor are open to public viewing. There is not much original furniture...More
