This was a beautiful building and grounds. Parking was excellent and great staff. The reflecting pool and the informational presentation of quotes along with the visitor center movie was a highlight.

The tabernacle is such a beautiful place to visit and sit and listen to the organist rehearse. There is a practice time around 12 noon, that i attended. Ensure your tourist timetable allows for spending some time listening to the amazing music.

During our visit to Salt Lake City we were fortunate to go to the old Tabernacle when there was an organ recital. Music by J S Bach was being played and my whole body was alive with the vibration of the sound. What amazing acoustics. At the conclusion of the recital it was possible to hear a whisper from the...

The tabernacle was built as an early meeting house for large numbers of members of the Chruch of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Two highlights are the pipe organ and free concerts are available. Also, the acoustics and roof design allow a pin to be dropped from the podium and heard throughout the entire building. The missionaries stationed here will... More

Great to visit the Tabernacle during the week before Christmas where preparations were underway for the Christmas events. Although we didn't manage to get to any of the Choir rehearsals or organ recitals, we were able to soak up the atmosphere. The illuminations and nativity displays outside the Tabernacle (and in Temple Square generally) were excellent and really captured the... More

We have heard of the wonderful turtle back design al our lives. Until you experience the wonderful acoustics of the building, it's hard to imagine. If the choir is performing, don't miss it. You'll never be the same!

It was beautiful I always make a point to stop and see the Tabernacle. If you can catch the choir I would highly recommend doing so. The organ pipes are quite amazing to see and everyone is so kind.

Even if you only have an hour in downtown Salt Lake City, it is best spent at Temple Square. Friendly guides, beautiful gardens, pioneer history, Utah heritage and culture. When in Rome, Catholics and non-Catholics alike go to the Vatican. In Salt Lake, it is Temple Square
