Historic Nauvoo Visitor Center


Begin your exploration of historic Nauvoo! Examine the 1846 relief map of Nauvoo, view an introductory video, and study historic artifacts and displays. Gather information on over two dozen restored homes, shops, and religious buildings in Nauvoo.

The Historic Nauvoo Visitors’ Center is the appropriate starting point for your visit. “Remembering Nauvoo“, a 20 minute film, "Meet the Mormons," a 77 minute film, and “Joseph Smith, Prophet of the Restoration“, a 62-minute film, are featured, as well as a self-guided tour of exhibits that are easily accessible. A walk through the beautiful and inspiring Monument to Women garden, honoring women of the past, present and future, is a highlight.

The Mormon Pioneer National Historic Trail Passport Stamp for Nauvoo is located at the Historic Nauvoo Visitor Center! The Passport to Your National Parks program is a voluntary program that nearly all parks within the National Park Service (NPS) participate. You can purchase an official NPS Passport book at several sites and begin recording your visits to NPS sites by stamping your passport with a rubber cancellation stamp. The cancellations, similar to those received in an international passport, record the name of the passport community and the date it was visited. The stamps also provide a record of your adventures.
