Pioneer Memorial Museum Review

Covering the pioneer era from the departure of the Mormons from Nauvoo, Illinois, to the hammering of the Golden Spike, this massive collection traces the history of Mormon settlers in 38 rooms—plus a carriage house—on four floors. Displays include clothing, furniture, tools, wagons, and carriages. Be careful with kids—this museum is as cluttered as a westbound covered wagon loaded with all of a family's possessions.

    Museum or rummage sale?

    A very large museum with a few highlights and a lot of junk. The highlights, like the antique fire engine and the original eagle sculpture at the Beehive House gate, make this place worth the visit, but there's an overwhelming amount of everyday junk that's more suggestive of a vast rummage sale than anything else.
