The organ was mildly impressive. The music was traditional, muddy, and lacked much personality. It's easy to sneak out between pieces so go if you want to sit for a few minutes.

After all the hype we expected much more than what was offered. Do not take children as they will be bored and restless. If you just need rest and meditation this will be for you.

We wanted to see the Tabernacle, but the choir was not in town. Instead, we went to one of the frequent organ recitals. Magnificent! Short acoustic demo was an eye-opener. Building is dated and a bit worn, but still impressive. If you're around Temple Square...More

This is a must see historical, architectural engineering feat. Step inside to take a load off your weary feet and enjoy the fabulous acoustics of this 19th century domed delight.

We attended the 2 PM FREE recital on Sunday in the Mormon Tabernacle. The organist was amazing, her hands flew over the keyboards (there are 5). The organ has more than 11,000 pipes and the sound was unbelievable. Before she began the concert the organist...More
