The Tabernacle Tours

The Salt Lake Tabernacle on Temple Square was built between 1863 and 1875 and originally housed meetings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS church). It was also the location of the semi-annual LDS General Conference for 132 years, before the conference moved to a new center in 2000. 

The Tabernacle’s unusual design is said to have come to Brigham Young while he was contemplating a hollowed-out eggshell. After the facility was completed it was considered an architectural wonder of its day, leading Frank Lloyd Wright to dub it “one of the architectural masterpieces of the country and perhaps the world.” Nearly 1.5 million feet of lumber was chopped in the nearby Wasatch Mountains to complete the project. The grand 11,623-pipe Tabernacle Organ, which pipes are made of hand-carved wooden staves, is one of the largest and sonorous organs in the world.  

Tours of the building include a demonstration of the Tabernacle's remarkable acoustics. Visitors are asked to sit in the rear of the building as the guide drops a pin on the floor close to the podium. The sound can be heard clearly throughout the hall. These incredible acoustics are why the Grammy-award winning Mormon Tabernacle Choir calls the Tabernacle its home.
