General Tour Information and Fees:

Interpretive tours of the Kirtland Temple begin with a brief theater presentation at the Kirtland Temple Visitor Center. Following the video presentation, historic interpreters lead a forty to fifty minute walking tour through the temple gardens and historic structure. Visitors explore the upper and lower courts of the temple, while learning about the construction and multiple uses of the temple by the 1830’s community.

A preservation fee of $5.00 per person is requested at the beginning of the tour. Preservation passes are provided at the Kirtland Temple Visitor Center. All proceeds go to the ongoing preservation of the Kirtland Temple.

Tour reservations required for groups exceeding 15 persons.

Specialty Tours

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.
