“Genealogy Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

A little time off from the library to tour the conference center. Thia place can hold 22,000 people & the auditorium has no pillars to obstruct your view. There is a garden on the roof that is beautiful in April but everything was dormant on our visit. The gentleman that gave our tour was very informative & answered all our questions

“Beautiful building worth a look around”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

If you are a member of the LDS church, this is obviously a place you want to go to see conference. There really isn't a bad seat in the house (seats roughly 20,000) and it's a lot easier to make yourself pay attention (I am a conference napper) there, which is good. Not to mention that is just a breathtaking building. For LDS people, this place is as close to Mecca as it gets. It's wonderful and I think it's a shame to not take advantage of it at least once if you live in the Salt Lake area.

If you aren't a member of the LDS church or are from out of town, it is still worth a visit. Temple Square is really beautiful and this building is one of the more impressive sights there. The creek that runs through it is cool to follow, the interior decorations are very nicely done, the gardens on the roof are awesome, and the things to see inside make it more than just a place where people sit to listen to church leaders.

I can't think of any cons, but it's not worthy of a five star rating because you can only spend so much time there. Also, I live 11 blocks away from it, so I see it all the time.

“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

A beautiful, enormous building that when filled with song and word, is a spiritual high. Go and listen to "The Spoken Word", a musical, spiritual hour long presentation of gospel and scripture.

“What a building”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

This building has some of the best acoustics of the West. It is so well-maintained, and it handles large amounts of people with no trouble at all.
