The tabernacle is a very beautiful church dating back to the mid-1860's. We did not go on a tour of the church and, instead, walked into the neighboring "square" or "main plaza" or the true heart of St. George. Okay, the church is historic and quite nice (from the outside) but the family orientation of the plaza (also the site... More

Retired LDS church missionaries lead you on a tour of what was an architectural feat given the time and location of the building. They are also very open to questions about the structure and its uses-especially from non-Mormans who don't understand the differences between tabernacles, temples and stake houses.

We happened to be here when they offered a free concert on Sunday, June 8, 2014 in honor of veterans. We were even more fortunate to sit directly behind the choir as it was a full house. Beautiful music and excellent speakers. Architecture in this old bldg was beautiful.

I was amazed and impressed as I heard the story of how this building was created by people who were just getting the community of St. George established. It is a real testament to the caliber of individuals who chose to live there. There are tour guides who are happy to explain the history. Remember to ask about the spiral... More

The architecture of this building is definitely worth the trip and it's free to enter and look. There are musical programs on weekends that are very professionally done.

The free tours here are great. You learn a lot about the early settlers and the construction of the Tabernacle. Most industrious people.

Nice stop. The tours are all guided but free. Tours are provided by church members. Ours was pleasant and well versed on the history. Some guides are pretty pushy religiously at some Mormon sites. This guide was not. When we said we were not interested in the religious aspects,she dropped it. It was built by importing all the wood and... More

We really enjoyed this tour. The building itself was spectacular and the docent was very knowledgeable. She was a convert from Australia and had done her homework. She shared a lot of the history of the LDS Church in St. George which was very interesting. And she knew why St. George's temple was the first in Utah.
