“Gorgeous Temple and very interesting visitors center”

Washington D.C. Temple Visitors' Center
Reviewed 6 April 2018 via mobile

I had family visiting and they are LDS church members so I thought they might enjoy seeing the beautiful temple. I’m not a member of the church but I still found it interesting. They had a model of the temple built to scale with a cut away to see all the rooms.

They have a lot of history of the temple including when it was built. As a Washington native, I thought it was very interesting.

I learned a lot and would take people to visit again.

At Christmas, they decorate the grounds and it’s a must see!

While the temple is currently closed for renovations the visitors center is still open for those that want to stop in.

The Washington D.C. Temple Visitor's Center is a nice place to visit to learn about the Mormon Church or also known as The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The visitor center gives you information about the Temple through the model and the staff. You can walk around the Temple up close and take pictures.

Stopped in randomly to view the Christmas Lights and were treated to a Bell Choir concert as well! The lights at the Temple and around the visitor's center were fantastic. The folks inside of the visitor's center were all very kind and would answer any question you had. Personally (unlike other comments in recommendations) neither my wife nor I felt like we were in a situation where someone was "converting" us. In reality the volunteers are just happy in their faith and want to share that joy if they can, but there was no pressure at all.

The lights were gorgeous and really put us in the Christmas spirit!
