Washington D.C. Temple Now Open to the Public for the First Time Since 1974

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is holding public tours at the famous Washington D.C. Temple, the first time it has open to the public since 1974.  The church was originally scheduled to open to the public in 2019 but was delayed due to COVID-19. The temple, beyond the visitor center, will be open to the public from April 28 through June 4, 2022, 9am-9pm, except on Sundays. The temple is located at 9900 Stoneybrook Dr. in Kensington. Parking and Metro shuttle tickets are now available at www.dctemple.org/open-house/

From dctemple.org:
“Open to the public for the first time in 50 years, we invite you to take a tour of this beautiful and iconic building. Come & See the place where we find peace, purpose and connection to each other and to God. During the open house, people of all ages, faiths, and no faith are welcome to come inside.

“When the temple was completed in 1974, it served all Latter-day Saints living east of the Mississippi and some Latter-day Saints in South America and Canada. At 160,000 square feet, it is the third largest temple in the world. It contains instruction rooms and sealing rooms, where marriages are performed.”
