I've seen it on tv, but the reality is so much better. I suggest you go to one of their free concerts--the choir is wonderful.

It's a great building and it is amazing how it was structured. Seeing this building was part of a tour of Temple Square. Would recommend it to anyone interested in architecture, art, and/or history.

We accidentally showed up in time to hear the organist play and demonstrate the acoustics. Incredible experience, not to be missed! Scheduling your visit around this won't upset the rest of the self-guided tour around the property.

The building is ugly from the outside and even unattractive inside without any peaceful feelings but when that organ begins and the choir opens their mouths it's pure magic.

A Sunday morning jaunt to Temple Square to be present for the live broadcast of The Tabernacle Choir in the Tabernacle is worth the effort. Beautiful acoustics, beautiful music, a thought-provoking message, and the thrill of watching a live broadcast in progress makes this a quick (30 minutes) and fun addition to your trip to Salt Lake City.

World famous tabernacle. This facility was filled in pioneer days without nails but with large trusses. The sound of it is incredible! Because of its oval elliptical shape you can hear a pin drop from the podium. Visitors are welcome and guided tours are available.

Beautiful pioneer structure maintained in perfect condition. The acoustics are perfect. We heard the Tabernacle Choir in rehearsal and performance with the orchestra. What an experience. I am an organist and was thrilled by the majestic pipes and the amount of stops combinations to create the perfect musical blends. Every visitor to Salt Lake City should experience the Tabernacle on... More

They have tours of this building and different musical performances each month. They can deop a pin from the front of the hall and you can easily hear it from the back. Not a building like it anywhere. Make a visit. A beautiful building and wonderful friendly tour guides. They have people there who each speak different languages, so regardless... More

This is amazing. Went for the Pipe Organ recital & it was awe inspiring. The auditorium is designed so scientifically that a pin when dropped can be heard far away, without a microphone. This Pipe Organ is the biggest that I have ever seen & heard.

We enjoyed the music and the atmosphere in the old tabernacle on Temple Square. It is an interesting piece of history and the acoustics are amazing!
