Well, virtually any way.
More than a century has passed since the public open house was held for the Salt Lake Temple, but an exhibit featuring a 1:32 scaled replica of the Mormon temple opened today that offers an open house experience of the magnificent building. Earlier this morning, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints unveiled the 88-inch tall, near-identical replica of the temple in the South Visitors’ Center on Temple Square. The permanent exhibit will be open to the public starting at 1:30 p.m. today.
This is a really cool idea! The model is almost 7 feet tall and weighs between 600 and 800 pounds. The Deseret News has a decent article on the project, with a neat slide show. Even though I’ve been inside the Salt Lake Temple, I plan on heading downtown next week when I have a day off to check out the model.
If you’re interested, here’s a little background on the Temple.
