The exhibit features historical documents, works of art, period artifacts, and media presentations about his life. It includes a replica of a portion of the Smith family log home, where young Joseph lived when he had his first vision.
"Follow the Prophet," opened in December. It displays images created by Latter-day Saint children from throughout the world.

The exhibit continues through Feb. 27.
