Salt Lake City Sights

Museum of Church History and Art

Updated 04/29/2014

Fodor's Review

The museum houses a variety of artifacts and works of art relating to the history and doctrine of the Mormon faith, including personal belongings of church leaders Joseph Smith, Brigham Young, and others. There are also samples of Mormon coins and scrip used as standard currency in Utah during the 1800s, and beautiful examples of quilting, embroidery, and other handwork. Upstairs galleries exhibit religious and secular works by Mormon artists from all over the world.

Excellent from a historic and doctrinaire standpoint, but bad art

Very edifying museum that gives lots of information on Mormon history, Mormon practices, and some odds and ends such as how the Temple Square Tabernacle was built. Docents there are very informative and eager to elaborate. Unfortunately also has lots of bad art, which is decidedly not worth a look.
