    I really expected more artifacts and personal effects. The lighting from neighboring areas made it difficult to view some of the displays. A creepy old man with a name tag started badgering me--I hate stuff like that--so I walked away... I did enjoy seeing the death mask of Joseph Smith and his brother, and, Brigham Young's sun glasses. Awesome design! Just a so-so museum over all, but at least it's opened on Sundays when most places are closed.

    A very well maintained, frequently updated, and family friendly museum for Church History and Art. I would have to say that the Art is by far the best part of this museum. If you want history, go down the street to the Church History Library. If you want inspirational art and a fun time for the whole family, come visit here!

    The place is nice. I was there sometime ago but this is about the need not to call and email them if you are a student. Because you are worthless to them. I called and explain that I was trying to get a little bit of information. I was then contacted by email. I asked what personal effect of Joseph Smith they had. I was clear I did not need any details on them. Just what they were. I.E. pen, watch,... When they found out I was a BYU student trying to put together a paper on religious artifacts I was told that they do not offer "Research services...Read More

When they found out I was a BYU student trying to put together a paper on religious artifacts I was told that they do not offer "Research services for student." I should of asked for an explanation but I was caught off guard when I found out just because I was a "student" I was not worth there time. I still wonder if I was dishonest and said I was a professor if I would of had value in there eyes and received and simple answer to a simple question. I will now drive the 1 1/2 round trip to get an answer for myself.
