ST. GEORGE, Utah — The visitors center at the St. George Utah Temple will be closed through mid-November for renovation.
New displays and new electronic systems will be installed to take advantage of technology and modernized means of sharing the gospel, according to Elder H. David Boucher, visitors center director. The Mountain Room and Universe Room where doctrines of the Church are explained will be redesigned. The visitors center was constructed in 1993, and an adjoining annex was completed a year later.
Visitors to St. George can still visit the annex and enjoy the dramatic view of the temple through large picture windows. They will still see the "Christus" statue as they enter the front doors.
Visitors can also tour the St. George Tabernacle, Jacob Hamblin Home and the Brigham Young Winter Home. Last year, more than 250,000 people visited the historic sites located in the southwest corner of Utah.
