Education in Zion, Permanent Exhibit

About the Exhibition

Permanent | Opened August 18, 2008 | Gallery’s Second Floor


Brigham Young University distinguishes itself by seeking to educate the whole soul of its students: curriculum is designed to be intellectually enlarging, spiritually strengthening, character building, and lead to life-long learning and service.

The Education in Zion exhibition in the Joseph F. Smith Building is built on these four aims, and it examines the importance of educating the whole soul through stories of men and women who sacrificed much to create this educational heritage for modern generations.


Information on these pages augments and enhances the material presented in the permanent exhibition. It is not a substitute for a physical visit. Like all museums and galleries, Education in Zion is an experiential learning experience.


Permanent Exhibition Layout

The Education in Zion exhibition is divided into three sections. The themes in these areas explore a Zion tradition in which truth is shared freely so that every person might learn and grow and in turn strengthen others.
