We stopped here on a whim since we were passing by. It was interesting to learn more about Brigham Young. The tour guides were very sweet and a pleasure to learn from. The architecture of the home was very interesting as well. For sure it is worth a stop.
The 'guides' don't know much about the house. More than anything, they are there to tell you how spiritual they are and give their testimony (they are missionaries). They don't try to convert you, but it gets old listening to them talk about the power of prayer. If you like history, and free, this is a good place to spend... 更多
My teenage daughter and I took the tour of the Beehive House on a Saturday afternoon and really enjoyed hearing about the history of the house. The house is beautifully made and the details on the woodwork were fascinating to me. It was incredible to see how the house was organized and used--very efficient. My favorite part was seeing all... 更多
We took the short tour of the house. Two very sweet missionaries gave the tour and tried very hard to make it an enjoyable experience and they did. No aposiliting other than telling their testimonies. The house is an icon in Salt Lake City. I can remember visiting as a little kid. It is free and is a powerful visual... 更多
As far as historical houses go, this one is pretty average. However, when in Salt Lake City, one has to visit a place of the local legend It is free and staffed with volunteers (as many places in SLC). One note though, their tour around a house is very minimal with historical details and anecdotes from Brigham Young's life and... 更多
I enjoyed seeing the period pieces and the craftsmanship - the carved bees in the woodwork, the painted dining room - was just stunning. While not Mormon, I also enjoyed seeing the displayed Book of Mormon and seeing a glimpse of how Brigham Young and his family lived. However, our tour only allowed us to look in about 8 rooms.... 更多
Bees and beehives snuck into the wood work. Great tour guides work house info and church history and religious beliefs into tour. Very interesting. Give yourself about 30 mins for the tour! An indoor bathtub, lovely furnishings, time period technology like a pedal sewing machine. House is walking distance from temple square.
Much ado about ....well not nothing. Good history, nice "artifacts" and good stories, but truthfully the entire tour could have been done in about 10 minutes without the sale of "how we become Mormon" by the volunteers. If you're patient and interested in not-so-old history, this is a cute...FREE...tour. Just don't expect the kids to be interested.
I was the only one on my tour. The two missionaries were adorable and did their job very well. Not all that much to see but it is interesting to have it all explained by fervent believers
We were surprised this place was open on Sunday-- in fact you can take a tour up to 8:30 pm. Young friendly missionaries lead you through the house and explain the history and basic tenets of the Mormon faith. You can get a free copy of the Mormon Bible at the end of the tour. There was no pressure to... 更多
