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

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

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

I was shown around Beehive House by a couple of Sisters from the Mormon faith. It was a great tour showing Brigham Youngs house built when they first settled in Salt Lake. I really enjoyed it and would recommend the tour.

You can learn a lot about the history of SLC and life in the days of the pioneers by visiting here. It may make you want to build a similar house of your own one day.

It is nice to see the house and how Brigham Young lived, but you do tend to be preached at by the sisters. If you aren't religious then it is a bit disconcerting
