Kirtland Temple
A National Historic Landmark

Planning a Visit

As you plan your trip to Kirtland, consider setting aside time to explore the museum located inside the Kirtland Temple Visitor Center. The museum exhibits a number of artifacts related to the early Kirtland Saints. A few of those items include a piece of original temple stucco, Elizabeth Cowdery’s 1837 Book of Mormon, and the 1837 Whitney Store daybook. You may also want to consider time to explore museum store, temple gardens, and Kirtland’s historic cemetery located next to the temple.

We offer specialty tours for our visitors: a behind the scenes tour, cemetery tour, and historic district tour. Get a glimpse of the Kirtland Temple from the basement pillars to the bell tower, hear about the ideas of the early pioneers' carefully created city plans for Kirtland, and learn about the stories of the 19th century Latter Day Saints buried in the cemetery next to the temple. These tours will help our fundraising efforts towards the preservation of the temple.
