All of the Church’s historic sites were originally closed in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. These historic sites began a phased re-opening plan in May 2021, and now, all sites are once again fully open to the public.
After enjoying incredible success with virtual tours, many historic sites will continue to offer that experience for members all over the world. To learn more about individual historic sites, their hours of operation, and their continuing availability for virtual tours, visit the Church’s historic sites website.
As the sites began reopening last year, Church Historian and Recorder Elder LeGrand R. Curtis Jr. of the Seventy told Church Newsroom, “We know people are anxious to visit and the missionaries are eager to welcome them. Visiting the sites is a great way for individuals and families to enhance their understanding of Church history. Walking the paths and streets where the early Saints walked and visiting their homes and shops provides an immersive experience with the past.”
