Lehi Utah FamilySearch Center/Discovery Area
Closed until further notice
The Discovery Experience at Lehi FamilySearch Center offers large interactive, touchscreen monitors to learn about you and your ancestors. You will use an iPad to log into your familysearch.org account and access your family tree. You will move between several stations to discover different details about your tree. You will also have the opportunity to capture a video interview or a photo.
NOTE - Each reservation is for a maximum of 15 individuals. Up to three reservations can be made for the same time to accommodate the size of your group. Group size is limited to a total of 45 per hour. When you click the Reserve Button above, you will need to find a date and time that will accommodate your group size.
Groups larger that 45 will need to spread across two hours. Adding a classroom to your reservation will allow half of your group to visit the Discovery Experience while the other half remains in the classroom for some instruction or other appropriate family history activities. After one hour, the two groups switch places.
FOOD AND DRINK POLICY - We have a no food or drink policy at the Lehi FamilySearch Center. Only water in a secured container. This includes no sodas and candy bars. Please review this policy with your group to encourage compliance.
A good experience requires some preparation.
