Church History Museum - sundays

4 posts in this topic

After an awesome sacrament meeting that included a much needed testimony from a young lady and a perfect message from a recently-returned faithful missionary...I did a brief visit at a two heritage exhibits at a local museum, and then a visit to Temple Square.

Was surprised how completely packed the initial place was - the museum with the heritage exhibits.

Then noticed, on arriving at Temple Square - with tour buses there..a large group/family tugging on the Church Museum Door. And thought it was unfortunate that on a day people were in town to learn about these odd Mormon types,  when they have prime time to learn/explore, our showcase museum is closed for them.

If many more are gonna come to Utah...which has been foretold many times...how many troublemakers/pot stirrers like myself on standby, greenhorn wannabe docents, politely asking, might it take to get permission to swing the doors upon on the Church History Museum on a Sunday for guests who would otherwise be peering wistfully through the glass (darkly)?

There are actually many LDS historical places which are open on Sunday, with missionaries present to conduct tours.  So it would not at all be a stretch to have the Church History Museum open.  It could be operated in shifts so that missionary members could attend their own 3-hour block.

It could serve as a segue to escorting them to a sacrament meeting in the tabernacle or assembly, and/or escorting them to the Visitor's Center.

Great suggestion.

And/or hold meetings there (or nearby)...so visitors can actually experience than something beyond a museum. A living-museum experience. And step into live action role-playing (actually experience an LDS meeting). A seedling first-hand experience they can then replant at home).

Reminds me of a youth dance held in an aquarium. Made for something of an amazing blended experience.
