    Worth the visit
    Major construction on square now so it is closed. That said you can go to organ rehearsal at the Tabernacle and on Wednesday evenings the choir rehearses at one of the meeting halls. Both are free. The area you can see is quite lovely. This was included on a tour.

    Terrific temple travels
    So many activities around Temple Square. Right now they are updating the Temple but it is interesting to see the work being done on it and still so beautiful. (the photos were from previous trips as we have just driven by this trip and have just seen the scaffolding but previous trips were amazing and there is so much to do in downtown Salt Lake City for people of all ages.) all the Temple workers are very knowledgeable and can answer any question.

    We were a little let down because the Temple itself was shrouded in scaffolding and the square was fenced off. We did get into the Tabernacle and the Conference Center both beautiful facilities. Unfortunately we didn’t get to hear either organ. Still a nice visit. I hope to return someday.

Not a Mormon, just checking it out. Beautiful buildings and grounds. Main Temple building is going through some reconstruction, and is all fenced off. Would recommend visiting around noon when they offer a free organ recital.

The staff/docents at all the venues in Temple Square were amazingly accommodating and welcoming and informative and sincerely committed to enhancing our experience. We spent several hours enjoying artwork, architecture, and the cultural history of Temple Square. We only visited a few venues of the many there to experience, and we are eager to return one day to see and experience those things for which we had not enough time. The venues we visited this time around were: Assembly Hall & the surrounding grounds; the conference center (wow!); and the following day, which was a Sunday, we attended the Music and the Word service in the Tabernacle with the choir (beautiful!).

We toured all over Temple Square this morning after attending the free performance by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. We made an online reservation for a free tour with one of the student missionaries. The north visitors center was the meeting place. Both the young ladies explained the history of the tabernacle and the background of the Mormon faith. They demonstrated the amazing acoustics in the tabernacle where they dropped 3 straight pins and the sound could be heard all over the church. They have us an explanation of the building of the temple, how LDS couples are bound with family for eternity, and the return of the anointing with Joseph Smith and Brigham Young. After that tour, we went across the street to the conference Center to tour the rooftop gardens. Temple Square sits on 35 acres and there is a lot to see. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes as you will do a lot of walking.

The conference center is beautiful and filled with art depicting the significant elements of the faith of the LDS church. A garden courtyard on the roof makes the building friendly toward neighbors. The young missionaries serve as tour guides and are informative.

Under Construction due to Earthquake. We walked the entire mile around the square. We did walk up to the Tabernacle, Assembly Hall, Church Office Building, The Beehive House, and around the Joseph Smith Building. Everything else was under major construction. Huge construction barriers are everywhere, scaffolding covers the Temple and views of everything are blocked. Visit when the construction is done. I visited when I was a teenager. the whole square was truly beautiful and memorable.

We walked around the complex, enjoying the scenery, and then we discovered that you can go inside the buildings, and look around. The people are so welcoming and friendly. We enjoyed learning about their history and culture. It's a great way to spend an evening.

The temple itself is undergoing a major renovation and won't be open until 2024 (according to their website) and all of the other buildings seem to be closed due to Covid. That being said, the square is still pretty to see from the outside. There are also friendly folks wandering about who can give you virtual tours of the buildings and answer any questions you might have. Certainly worth checking out if you're visiting the city, but if you've always dreamed of seeing the inside of the buildings you may want to wait until everything reopens.

Simply gorgeous. The Temple stands illuminated in the center of square surrounded by Christmas lights and a festive crowd-children and elderly braving the cold but enjoying the spirit of the season with their neighbors and tourists alike.

Must visit. Take your time as there is a museum, concert hall, pipe organ and community center with food and activities. You can enter all the buildings except the Temple.

Similarly, surrounding the Temple Square is a great indoor/outdoor mall that is bustling with shoppers.

A great way to spend an afternoon in Salt Lake City.

Due to construction and covid, everything was closed. However, the views of the temple were magnificent. We ran into multiple groups of sisters on the grounds who were very eager and willing to teach us about LDS, the temple, the grounds, and other historical facts. The construction just started this year and seems to be a 4-year project. They have clear panes on the construction walls for passersby to see the progress and offer unique views of the base of the temple.

If you visit this area, this is a must if your curious about Mormons stuff. Be mindful of the constructions in the area because we got lost. We just keep walking in circles because of the Google maps when we can just cross the street from the mall.

I really wanna see the Organ recital so we went early so we can take pictures inside. Their schedule changes so better check the website before visiting. It won't start till 1200, we went in around 1130 because someone already is practicing but they will tell you to leave then come back for the real performance which is fine. We walked around the church and read some history of the bell. Overall, it's a good experience. Highly recommended!
