Washington D.C. Temple Ready to Open Doors to Public 

For the first time in nearly 50 years, the Washington D.C. Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Kensington is preparing to invite the public inside. 

Starting next Thursday, the temple will open its doors to the public for the first time since 1974. During a media event Monday, MyMCM toured the seven-floor building and spoke with church leaders and Gov. Larry Hogan ahead of the open house. 

The free open house runs April 28 until June 11. Tickets for on-site parking or a Metro shuttle can be reserved online.

The temple closed for renovations in 2018. The open house was originally planned for fall 2020 but was delayed due to COVID-19. After tours end in June, the temple will close to the public once again and will be rededicated in August.
