We reluctantly followed one of our group (4 of us) to look inside this structure, fully expecting just another church. We hemmed and hawed about how much time we could spend -- and then spent an hour looking at this structure. It is a fascinating building in terms of the mormon religion as well as the times in which it... More

Well informed guides...one of our group got to actually play the organ (great sound). This is a lovely building and the Elders and Sisters have such love and reverence for their history...they love to share it with visitors

We stopped into the tabernacle after visiting the St. George Visitor Center by the temple. It helped us to understand the difference between a chapel, a temple, and a tabernacle. The couple who were giving tours of the tabernacle were absolutely delightful. They were warm and quite informative without being pushy (like some religious groups can be). The tabernacle itself...

This place isn't anything particularly special, it's a nice big building and has good acoustics. Why I think it's great is when there's a concert! The music is lovely and there's a great feel to the place. The all seeing eye on the wall is typical masonry at its finest but overall it's a fun free place to visit it... More

Got a great personal tour of the site and was able to learn some of the construction techniques the early settlers used to build a great structure. They still have public performances during the week.

We went for a concert. Not the most comfortable seating, but the building is wonderful and the history is enchanting. Delighted to have a chance to visit!

This was a very cool stop while in the area. The building was built in the 1800s and it has an awesome history. We would love to stay longer and see more of the area like this. And there is a lot of it.

We weren't going into the Tabernacle but it was such a lovely old structure we did. The "Saints" give tours if you want and explain the history of Latter Day Saints in St. George as well as the construction of the Tabernacle. They are very knowledgeable and don't proselitize. Inside of building is beautiful and has many hidden little things... More

Interesting LDS church history tour. Worth a visit. Intimate small tours. Friendly guides. Amazing how Pioneers could accomplish all that they did with nothing but hand tools.

Like most Mormon-maintained sites in St. George, the tabernacle is clean, even sparkling, and accessible. A short tour with a Mormon elder, so expect a "sales pitch", although mild. Lots of good history and a bizarre story about how Brigham Young, the prophet and church president of the time, demanded physical change to the completed structure and accomplished it!
