Hill Cumorah Visitors' Center

603 State Route 21

Built at the foot of the Hill Cumorah, the Visitors Center is an invaluable resource for those who want to know more about the many Church historic sites in the surrounding area.  Beautiful displays with interactive audio and video tell much about historic events that took place at these sites. Powerful films tell of the love of the Savior for all the people of the world.

Great 90-minute outdoor show in July that gives a summary of some of the stories from the Book of Mormon on the side of the Hill Cumorah (aka Hill Cumorah Pageant). Great special effects for a live show. Beautiful music and costumes. Begins around 9:15 pm on certain nights. Arrive 30 minutes to an hour early to park and get seats and refreshments (salt potatoes, popcorn, soda, ice cream, chicken dinner, etc.) provided by local service clubs before the show (refreshments close at 9). Cast in costume walk around and interact with audience members before and briefly after the show. Bring a light jacket and/or blanket as it can get chilly during summer nights. Bug spray is useful as well. Plenty of restrooms provided in permanent structures and mobile trailers. Handicap accessible (although I would suggest driving rather than walking up to the top of the Hill to visit the Moroni statute before the sun goes down). All ages welcome. Our 8-month-old watched some of the show and was able to sleep through the rest.

The Visitors center was beautiful with the landscape surrounding the oval window with a white statue of the Christ showing his outstretched hands. It was really moving. The missionary guides helped the tour go through the available films and interactive displays. I love the history of the area! A great place for a reflective walk!

What a great place to visit! If you can, come to the Hill Cumorah Pageant. It typically starts the 2nd Friday of July and runs Friday and Saturday and then Tuesday-Saturday of the next week. Being a cast member of the Pageant, I have seen many miracles including the fact that we all get here, get cast into our different roles, and learn the entire Pageant only one week before this amazing show starts. But if you can’t come during Pageant week, still come at another time. There is such a strong spirit as this is where Joseph Smith got the plates which he translated into the Book of Mormon.

The visitors center is open until 8 during winter hours, and that includes the gate that blocks the drive up to the top of the hill. We got there at 8:30 and the grounds keeper hadn't locked the gate, but told us to go ahead and he'd wait for us. I've hiked up the grass hill before, but driving is easier with little ones. The monument is lite so you can see it from the road and the walkway is clean and inviting. This is always a nice place to stop and stretch your feet while taking a moment to learn about the importance of this location. It's very peaceful.

Such a beautiful place! We took our six kids here and walked up to the top of the hill, the sites were gorgeous! The Visitor Center was open and friendly, with clean bathrooms. We would definitely go back again. In the summer, there is a wonderful pageant that goes on, that is like an outdoor play. Definitely a must-see!
