Located in the heart of New York City, Madison Square Garden® and Radio City Music Hall® are two of the world’s most iconic venues. These historic buildings have been the backdrop to many of the world’s legendary performances and events.

No trip to New York is complete without a visit to each. Luckily, both Madison Square Garden and Radio City Music Hall offer an opportunity to get up close and personal with interactive tours.

The Madison Square Garden All Access Tour™ includes a one-of-a-kind look at The World’s Most Famous Arena® and its exciting history. Experience the iconic Arena bowl where some of the most legendary events have taken place. Also, enjoy the new spectacular Chase Bridges offering a unique view of the action.

The Garden 366 exhibit is a visual retrospective that pays homage to one moment in Garden history for every day of the year. The tour also features the Garden’s Defining Moments - an exhibit celebrating the 20 most iconic moments in the Garden’s history with commemorative photos, memorabilia and artifacts.

A highlight of the tour is the unique opportunity to see the locker rooms of the Knicks®, Rangers® and Liberty®*. Also, experience MSG VIP treatment with access to one of the luxury suites featuring state-of-the-art amenities and exclusive seating. The tour also includes a visit to the Delta Sky 360° Club, which offers game day guests exclusive views of the Knicks and Rangers entering and exiting the locker room.

For an equally unique experience, the Radio City Stage Door Tour® offers the opportunity to explore Radio City’s art deco interior, learn the secrets and history of the Great Stage, visit the historic Roxy Suite and meet a world-famous Rockette®! 

Radio City Music Hall is not only a national landmark, but also an integral part of the heart and soul of New York
City. Since opening in December 1932, the legendary Music Hall’s intimate seating has hosted a wide variety of memorable performances and special events which have become a part of Radio City’s great history.

Radio City’s most cherished tradition is the Radio City Christmas Spectacular®, starring the Rockettes®. This event has been performed every year since 1933 and attracts over one million people annually. The legendary Rockettes are internationally known for their talent, precision and unparalleled teamwork and will also star in the upcoming New York Spectacular Starring the Radio City Rockettes™.

Both tours are 75-minutes long and are open seven days a week*.
