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!

The Temple was built in the 1870s and has two staircases designed by Mitt Romney, great great grandfather of the presidential candidate. The are beautiful, and the temple is now used for visitors, and special events. The organ is amazing and has over 100 pipes so I am sure that the music is beautiful. The temple is free and open...

The staircases are masterpieces and worth looking at. The inside is only open because it is now used by local community. Free tours and history of the building are conducted by volunteers.

The Mormon Tabernacle in St. George UT is a natural must see after visiting Brigham Young's winter residence. Aside from being a beautiful place of worship, the presentation by the Mormon Elder was informational and fascinating. The Tabernacle is also in the center of St George, providing a nice visual experience of the 'downtown' area!

This is a neat historical building. They have occasional concerts here. It's original architecture leave you marveling at how they built this building with the tools they had in the 1800's. Ask about the spiral staircase.

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
