People in countries around the world can now visit church history sites in Salt Lake City without ever traveling to the United States, through online virtual tours.

The online virtual tours are meant to provide an interactive experience for members who are unable to come to the United States and visit sites of historical importance to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It is hoped these members will grow in their testimony, appreciation and understanding of the early pioneers and the history of the Church.

Hallowed Ground Sacred Journeys is a multimedia platform featuring Religious Educators from BYU. It consists of a website, virtualtours.byu.edu, a hardcover book, “Salt Lake City, Ensign to the Nations,” a Salt Lake City church history tour guide and a DVD-ROM that includes the virtual tours also found on the website. The educators teach about various sites’ significant to the church.

“We’ve got more members now outside the U.S. than we do inside, and we thought, ‘Wouldn’t it be wonderful if people could actually see the church history sites and kind of be introduced to them and interact with them and see what they wanted to see?’ ” said John Livingstone, executive producer of BYU Virtual Tours and associate professor of church history and doctrine.
