The acoustics in this beautifully preserved piece of history are not to be believed! Not a single nail, and yet it has stood wind, rain, weather, pollution for 150 years. If u are near Temple Square, this is a "must see". Drop in, someone os always there to show you around.

Not being a mormon, I visited for historical purposes. I have heard the mormon Tab choir on radio etc. when I was a kid (many moons ago LOL). I enjoyed the tour, the architecture; the flowers etc. When they tried to convert men, I simply told them I was there for history and not interested in their discussion. I was... More

My colleagues and I roamed Temple Square one evening after work, taking in fully the scope of the area. With no time during the day, the ability to be a tourist at SLC's main attraction after work, is appreciated. In particular, we went to The Tabernacle to admire the building's oval roof and acoustics. Since it was obvious my crew... More

The decor is nothing special. I didn't hear them play the music so perhaps that would be better. The staff was friendly though.

Th tabernacle is open to the public. The roof is rounded for near perfect acoustics. The LDS web site lists times for choir practice, usually on Thursday nights, where you can listen to the majesty of the 300 voice choir and full orchestra. Also, there are daily orgn recitals at noon.

Impressive organ and 2 grand pianos. Very good acoustics. The missionary sisters were helpful and knowledgable about the building. We only stayed shortly as my 7mo was beginning to be fussy and my 3.5yo was napping

Being a great fan of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, I was thrilled to learn that weekly rehearsal is on Thursday evening 7:30 to 9:30 pm. I went and thoroughly enjoyed hearing the choir with director Mack Wilberg. I was fascinated to see the workings of the choir. As cameras are allowed, I enjoyed taking pictures of the rehearsal and video... More

The Tabernacle encloses several decades of the history of the LDS Church. The architecture is awsome and the details are surprising. You need to see (and hear) the "dropped pin test" to realize the acoustic is just impressive.

You must make this a stop if you are visiting SLC. The history and how this building was constructed are amazing!

. . . standing outside one very cold night for over an hour in February, 2015, to get into the Tabernacle, gave me an appreciation for venues with clear entrance/exits plans that enable an audience to enjoy a concert without frostbite!
