Nice history lesson here

Visit this along with temple square , tours by guides take about 20 minutes and are free. Obviously they also talk about the Mormon faith, but not overly so.

I was curious about this place after the positive reviews here but now that I've been on the tour I honestly feel robbed of the time this tour took - albeit it was "only" 30mins. However, I assure you those minutes seemed like an eternity when being on a guided walk by missionaries who's mission seems to be to convert... More

Fascinating tour of the Beehive House, which was the home of Brigham Young. Salt Lake City history very much entwines with the history of the Mormons-- the early pioneers. Even though my husband and I aren't Mormon, we could still appreciate the early history of Salt Lake City, and learned a lot from our friendly tour guides. The tours are... More

If you have time, it's another window into the history of the LDS church. The tour doesn't take very long and the guides are very sweet.

The emperor of Brazil and Mark Twain are only two of many 19-century luminaries who made it a point to visit Brigham Young's polygamist domain. Very interesting and well-maintained. Be nosy and ask lots of questions and the guides (the "sister missionaries") will have more stories and insights to share than you'll get if you think you're being polite and... More

We made a detour to the Beehive on our way to Temple Square. Had a free tour with 2 LDS sisters. We saw the office, bedroom and living areas of Brigham Young. At the end of the tour you can have a free Book of Mormon. Downside, I wanted to see the upstairs....but couldn't.

Visiting Temple Square, we visited the Beehive House once the home of Brigham Young. Most rooms are open and decorated with original furnishings and accessories or very good reproductions. His actual cost is on display as are other personal articles. The guide were well informed, knowledgeable, and friendly. This is a must see site when visiting Temple Square.

If you are interested in learning more about the LDS church and Brigham Young you will want to check out the Beehive house. Don't worry no recruitment to the church just history information. The area around the Beehive house is very nice and makes for a really nice tour for a few hours. If you visit Utah and Downtown and... More

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... More
