Historic Nauvoo Reviews & Ratings

  • What a great experience for me and the family. Folks were kind and the preservation of the old homes is top notch. The history of the Church and the Legacy of its members is also masterly preserved.

  • We saw the pageant, went to many of the workshops and really enjoyed our visit. This is a special place to be. The visitor center performances are also well worth your time to attend.

  • Fun place for kids to learn about the life of early American settlers .... For FREE!

  • Historic and cultural nuf said!!

  • Wow wow and wow! Words cannot express how wonderful and quaint this town is! You will learn about the history of the Mormons. Explore numerous 1840s buildings. There are a number of souvenier shops with cool items that the pioneers used. Everyone is so nice and welcoming and eager to explain the rich history this town has. The Temple is beautiful. Im sure in the summer they have many activities for kids. What no one has mentioned is that inside almost all the old buildings is someone will either expertly explain the rich history of the building and the people who lived there or will show you how things were made in pioneer days. Learn how a brick was made. Learn how shoes, wagon wheels, horse shoes,bread ,barrels, blankets, shoes, guns, ropes and more. There is a blacksmith shop, a printing shop etc. Everyone is eager and more than happy to explain in rich detail! And did I mention the horse ride as well. All for FREE.
