Temple Square Visitors’ Centers

The visitors’ centers at Temple Square are gateways to learn about the restored gospel of Jesus Christ.



Both visitors’ centers on temple square are designed to convey the message of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the importance of the family, and explain the teachings and history of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. They feature short films, interactive displays, and beautiful artwork, as well as many places to just sit and ponder.The north building features a marble reproduction of the eleven-foot Christus by Danish sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen, an interactive exhibit of the Church’s welfare and humanitarian aid efforts, and a tabletop map made of four thousand miniature pieces depicting Jerusalem as it might have been at the time of Jesus. The south building features interactive displays emphasizing the Church’s commitment to strengthening families and building temples. Free tours are offered in each center.
