3 reviews
Completed in 1867, the Salt Lake City Tabernacle is an architectural marvel famous for its remarkable acoustics: A pin dropped at the pulpit can be heard clearly at the back of the hall 170 feet (52 meters) away. Home of the renowned Mormon Tabernacle Choir, the church hosts concerts and tours that attract visitors from all over the world.

The Basics
Tours of the Salt Lake City Tabernacle are free, and you can time your visit to catch a live performance by one of the most recognized and beloved choirs in the world, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Visitors can listen to the choir practice on Thursday evenings or attend a live Sunday morning broadcast of Music and the Spoken Word, the longest-running national broadcast in the country.

Many guided tours of Salt Lake City include a stop at the tabernacle as part of a visit to Temple Square, Utah’s most visited attraction. In addition to Temple Square, some tours include other city sights such as the Utah State Capitol and the Pony Express Monument.
