Joseph Smith death mask.

Mormon Church History Museum

The first floor is the history of the church, starting with a short film about Joseph Smith bring visited by Jesus and/or an angel in the woods. It's interesting for a while by covering how he miraculously translated an unknown language using a stone and special glasses. His death mask is there, as well as historical artifacts from his assassination.

Second floor is a large collection of art in different styles and is worth checking out.
