The Mormon Tabernacle Choir has performed all over the world, including Asia, Europe and Australia. Learn more about the choir and their performances here.
Joseph Smith Memorial Building: Former Hotel Utah, this historic building is home to the Family Search Center; an LDS based program that allows anyone to learn about and work on their family history. It also offers a free full-length film about the life of Joseph Smith. To learn more about tours and others attractions at the JSB click here.
Salt Lake Temple: This amazing building took 40 years to finish construction and was built by the early saints who settled Utah. The Temple is a very sacred building for members of the church, so it is not open to the public, but displays of the inside can be found in the South Visitor's Center. Worthy members of the church can be married to their spouses in this incredible building, so you may see a wedding party or two on the square during your visit!:) To learn more about this and other temples of the church, click here.
