We were welcomed into this beautiful building where we were able to listen to the huge organ being played by a young lady. Any questions that we had were answered by any of the attendants in the building. Accoustics were amazing.

This building is where the Mormon Tabernacle Choir performs for part of the year. Originally it seated up to 7000 people, but through several refurbishings interior seating has been reduced to about 3000 - in part due to the larger sized people of the 21st century compared to the 19th. Acoustics are incomparable - the tour guides like to do... More

If you are visiting Salt Lake, no matter what your religious believes, a trip to Temple Square and the Tabernacle is a must see. The building is unbelievable, especially considering when and under what circumstances it was built.

We were lucky to hear a recital on the magnificent Salt Lake Tabernacle Organ that has 11623 pipes! They demonstrated the acoustics of this building by tearing a newspaper and dropping 3 pins at the front of the stage and you could hear them 57 metres away. They do not need to use a microphone.

Open to the public.....great experience. There was a wait to get in, but there are no bad seats due to the architecture.

I was also there 50 years ago. Originally built in the 1840's, it was designed for great acoustics. Though we could not find a tour, they were open and apparently were practicing on the organ when we visited.. They still do the pin drop Demo!

Inside the tabernacle is very lovely. Even tho there were no organ recitals or choir rehearsals going on at the time we visited, it was still very nice to be able to go in and sit down for a few minutes and soak it all in.

I was traveling to the Salt Lake area on business and when the airport van was taking me to my hotel (around xmas time) I was taken by the lights and buildings I could see from the road. During my stay I wandered up to the square and was so happy I did. It was beautiful and the people were... More

The building is a lovely building for what I am told is very good choir. The stage and organ is very impressive. I am sure the choir are only too happy to perform there.
