Church leaders have announced the closure of two visitors’ centers and a change in operation of one.

Church spokesman Daniel Woodruff said the New Zealand Temple Visitors’ Center will close in July 2018 for extensive renovations, coinciding with the closure of the temple itself for that purpose.

“Its function will merge with the new Church History Centre and Museum in Hamilton, New Zealand,” Woodruff said.

The Park City Family Tree Center, originally opened in conjunction with the 2002 Winter Olympics in Utah, is also closing.
