Private Group Tours
Frequently Asked Questions

How early can group tours be booked?

You can place your request for a booked tour as early as four months in advance. These requests, however, cannot be confirmed until four weeks prior to the desired tour date. Since Carnegie Hall is a live performance space with constantly changing rehearsal and performance schedules, providing us with multiple dates and times on your tour request form will significantly expedite the booking process.

When are tours offered?

Tours are generally offered Monday through Saturday from October through late June. Generally, we are not able to begin a tour before 10 AM or start a tour after 4 PM.

How much do tours cost?

Tickets for adults are $17; tickets for seniors (62 and older), students, and children (12 and younger) are $12.

How many guests can you accommodate at one time?

Carnegie Hall was built in 1891 and is a national landmark and historical preservation site. For this reason, the building has limited elevator access and can only accommodate 120 tour guests at one time. Groups that include more than 120 people should be divided accordingly, with arrivals staggered by 45-60 minutes. Once a group is admitted into the main lobby, it is split into smaller subgroups of 20; each is appointed a tour guide. Tour operators, leaders, and escorts are encouraged to divide their large groups into subgroups before arriving at the Hall.

Can we take tours in different languages?

Our ability to give tours in different languages varies from year to year, but we always try to accommodate specific needs. We are also happy to work with a translator provided by the tour operator. Please note, however, that one translator is needed for every 20 people. Any language and/or translation requests should be made at the time of booking.

Is the tour accessible for guests with physical disabilities?

The Carnegie Hall tour is fully accessible by elevator. If you have any requirements regarding guests with mobility needs, please let us know when making your tour request.

How long is the tour?

Tours are 60 minutes in duration, depending on congestion and/or questions raised during the tour. All tours begin in the main lobby of Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage at 57th Street and Seventh Avenue and end in the Rose Museum on the second floor.

What do you see on the tour?

Our friendly and knowledgeable tour guides share 125 years of Carnegie Hall history, walking guests through the landmark building. Visitors will see the famous Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage from various points of view, walk through Composers Alley, hear the stories behind many of the famous signed photographs of performers hanging on the walls, and visit the Rose Museum with more than 400 Carnegie Hall artifacts. Tours end in the museum, adjacent to the Carnegie Hall Shop.

Is there a bag, coat, or stroller check?

There is no bag, coat, or stroller check available during normal tour hours at Carnegie Hall. Roller bags, large suitcases, and/or bulky backpacks are not permitted inside Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage on tours. These items must be stored at an offsite location.

What is the youngest age that can be accommodated on a tour?

Our tours are most appropriate for school groups with students ages 8 and older.

Can a group request a specific tour guide?

Please make any specific requests at the time of the booking.

Can we go backstage, onstage, or perform in the Hall during our group tour?

The stage and backstage areas of Carnegie Hall are only available to scheduled performers.

Can we bring food or drink with us on our group tour?

Absolutely no outside food or drink is permitted inside Carnegie Hall. If you are interested in a tour and meal package, please let us know at the time of your booking and we will be happy to provide you with options.

Where can we park our tour bus?

For groups traveling by bus or motor coach, drop-off and pick-up locations are on the east side of Seventh Avenue between 57th and 58th streets. Please note that buses are not allowed to park in these areas for the duration of an event, and Carnegie Hall is unable to obtain parking permits. Buses are allowed to wait for 20 minutes in zones marked No Parking, No Standing, or No Standing Except Truck Loading and Unloading. Bus drivers may not leave their vehicle during any drop-off or pick-up.

When do I pay for the tour?

Once a tour is confirmed, payment is requested one week in advance of the tour date, preferably by credit card.

What if I need to cancel my tour?

There is a three business day cancellation policy.
