Fodor's Review

Genealogy is important to Mormons. This four-story library houses the world's largest collection of genealogical data, including books, maps, and census information. Mormons and non-Mormons alike come here to do research.

Fine for reseach, but not really a tourist attraction

This is a research library for genealogy. It's perfectly fine for this purpose, but as a tourist attraction, it's a bust -- there are no exhibits and the building has minimal architectural interest.
