Amazing acoustic

The organ is pretty impressive. When you go make sure you get to witness when they demonstrate the acoustic of the building. It's mind blowing!

I went to a free Sunday organ recital at the Tabernacle, and, was very, very impressed. You can literally hear everything while you are inside,and, the organ was breathtaking!!

I always visit The Tabernacle while I am in Salt Lake City. Listening to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir is a must, even if you can only visit during one of their rehersals.

My partner always insists on taking out of town visitors to see this remarkable piece of architecture. Try to catch the MoTab Choir practice session. Helpful tip: Unless you want visitors, don't part with your address.

We visited the Tabernacle on a Sunday and took in the organ recital. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The performance is only a half hour so is easy to fit into your schedule. The Tabernacle is a fabulous site on its own. The organ of 11,623 pipes is a site to behold on its own. The changing lighting above and... More

This is a beautiful historic building and is definitely worth a visit whilst in Salt Lake City. The architectural style is amazing and it is so peaceful inside. We just sat and watched a rehearsal for 30 minutes and spent some time relaxing out of the sun.

The history of the architecture is fascinating. The organ is magnificent. It's a building steeped in history and you can feel it. As others have said, try to go when music is playing -- the Mormon Tabernacle Choir rehearsals are open to the public, free, every Thursday night at 7:30. The acoustics are great, as they will demonstrate on your... More

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.
