Tabernacle

Experience the architectural and acoustic wonder of this landmark structure, which has awed visitors and worshippers with its unique design since 1875.

The Salt Lake Tabernacle is the architecturally astounding dome-shaped auditorium and the home of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Designed in the mid-1800s to accommodate 7,000 guests, the Salt Lake Tabernacle was built with acoustic precision in mind. Attend a concert and appreciate the magnificent sounds that reverberate through the enormous building. Check out the Tabernacle’s innovative design, which took inspiration from bridge-engineering techniques to support the colossal domed roof.

Wander around the Tabernacle to see the 250-foot (76-meter) long building from different perspectives. Stroll past countless brick columns, which support the magnificent aluminum-clad dome. See the sky and the spires of the Salt Lake Temple reflected in the gleaming metal on the eastern part of the dome. The oval roof is ingeniously supported by a lattice-truss arch system usually seen in bridges.

Say hello to friendly greeters as you make your way into the cavernous interior. You’ll find a spacious hall spanning 170 feet (52 meters), complete with numerous seats, an area for the choir and a balcony. The building’s western end contains a pulpit and an enormous pipe organ, which incorporates 11,623 pipes and a beautiful carved-wood façade. Be sure to visit the Tabernacle for an organ recital or a concert by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the in-house orchestra to appreciate the superb acoustic qualities of this building. The acoustics are said to be so precise that a pin dropping on the pulpit can be heard from a seat on the opposite end of the building.

The Salt Lake Tabernacle is a highlight of downtown Salt Lake City’s historic Temple Square. The Tabernacle is open daily and is wheelchair accessible. Visit this breathtaking architectural wonder for free. See free organ recitals at midday or catch a free rehearsal performance by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir on Thursday evenings. You can also hear bells rehearsals on Wednesday evenings. Reach the Tabernacle and Temple Square easily via public bus or light rail. Parking is available at the nearby LDS Conference Center and other lots near Temple Square.
