First thing you see when you walk in its a giant statue of Jesus Christ, arms held out in a welcoming gesture. As it is a visitor's center for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, there are a number of presentations of the Church's history, as well as the Plan of Salvation, many with life-sized replicas of pioneer scenes. It's a place of peace and good feeling, with sister missionaries to guide you through the various presentations, or you can walk through and press buttons to view many of them on your own.

What a wonderful feeling I felt there. I could feel how much God loves all of his children. I wish I had been able to bring my children when they were young to feel it. Wonderful! Thank you for all that sacrifice to teach there. God bless you all.

Great information about the history of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints! Missionaries did a great job explaining and guiding through. Great place to visit and experience the calm and peacefulness of our Savior!
