On the corner of State Street and South Temple is the Beehive House, Brigham Young's Salt Lake City residence. The mansion has been beautifully restored and offers tours showing what life was like in the home. Tours are free and available on a first-come basis Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Reservations are not required. Tours are approximately 30 minutes long. The tour focuses on Brigham Young’s role as a prophet and community leader and on the private life of his family.
As you plan to visit the Beehive House, please be aware that it does not include public restrooms. The closest public restrooms are in the nearby Joseph Smith Memorial Building. If you use a wheelchair, you should be aware that the second floor of the Beehive House is inaccessible for a wheelchair because of narrow, winding staircases. If you use a wheelchair but are able to navigate a few steps, you will be able to tour the first floor. You will need to go up seven steps from the sidewalk to the front door and four steps from one wing of the first floor to another.
