“Beautiful grounds and building yet pushy with friends”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

We have been here many times for free community concerts always lovely and nice that they let them use the building for community non religious events this is why I gave it a poor instead of a terrible. The reason I gave it a terrible is because we had friends come into visit and had a free tour they didn't want to climb the stairs because they were older couple and too steep. Volunteer tour guide was pushy from the start and kept asking them to take a Book of Mormon, give their information to have missionaries contact them. I was appalled and embarrassed that they were treated this way. These were friends visiting wanting to see the beautiful building not coming to join the religion. Let's just say that tour did not end well. I might come back to see friends perform in for the nonreligious events though I will never take a tour again and neither recommend it.

“Historic charm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We learned much about the history of the building and the city from the excellent guides. Free organ concerts are performed each Saturday at noon by various talented organists. Also other musical and lecture programs are here throughout the week. This is a "don't miss" place to visit in St. George.

“Fun Free Concert”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Attended a free concert of a four-person guitar group. Wife and I possibly the youngest in attendance, mostly handsome aged "snow birds" in attendance. Fun to see the inside of this beautifully historic building.

They give free tours and free concerts in this historic building. The pipe organ is great. It is a cozy place and the acoustics are good.
