The Art and History museum is located west of Temple Square and north of the Family History Library. Entrance is free. There are rotating and permanent exhibits. I like to come on occasion to see the fantastic art of members of the LDS church from all over the world. It is moving to me to see the love and care they show in creating art.

The history part of the museum also has some good information about the growth of the church as seen from the perspective of the 16 Presidents of the church.

In between the two buildings is an original log home built 1847 by Osmyn and Mary Deuel. According to the sign in front this is one of two remaining homes from that first year the pioneers were in the valley.
