New Experience



    Living History Programs

    Step back in time with us during one of our living history days, where you can speak, work, and play with figures from the Church’s past. During these events, costumed interpreters perform historical demonstrations with authentic materials and will help you and your family relive key moments in Latter-day Saint history.
