My husband had a relative in the Mormon Battalion, so this place was of special interest to us. It would be interesting to just about anyone, though, and is interactive so kids enjoy it. I think it's a don't-miss for the area if you like...More

It was humorous and enlightening. And it’s free!

Unfortunately there is no gift shop but they'll take a picture of your group with their background and camera and give you the picture as a souvenir.
