  • Sister Davis took us on a walking tour through the museum! It was super interesting and the three kids I brought (15/11/8) listened the whole time and even asked questions! It was really nice having someone lead us and give us information beyond what the little blurbs say. She was really kind and engaging. It was very enlightening to learn about The Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints!
  • There was a special spirit here as history was shared and we learned of hardships and triumphs of those that traveled and settled the frontiers. Those giving tours are very nice and also cautious of our time. There are picnic tables that were shaded and wonderful in the late afternoon. This was a wonderful stop on our road trip.
