Carnegie Hall Tours

Carnegie Hall
Carnegie Hall is one of New York's most iconic performance centers, having hosted musicians from Judy Garland to Benny Goodman. Today, the hall's diverse programming includes everything from solo acts to orchestras, and seeing a music performance at Carnegie Hall is a highlight of a New York City visit.

The Basics

The best way to visit Carnegie Hall is by attending a performance at one of its three venues. On the way inside, visitors enjoy the building's unique details. Known for its Renaissance Revival exterior, complex carvings, and world-class acoustics, Carnegie Hall is a work of art in itself.

On a guided tour, discover walls packed with signed photographs, theater ephemera, and multimedia installations about the storied space. Many hop-on hop-off bus tours pass Carnegie Hall, and it is often included in multiattraction passes, which cover entry into dozens of New York sites. Some passes even offer skip-the-line access—but be sure to check in advance.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • The iconic performance space is a must for theater, dance, and music lovers.
  • History buffs enjoy the Rose Museum, which chronicles the history of Carnegie Hall.
  • Offerings are diverse—and ticket prices vary by performance—so check the calendar.
  • Photography is not allowed during performances.
  • Carnegie Hall has a café, museum, and gift shop.

How to Get There
Carnegie Hall is located at 881 Seventh Avenue, at 57th Street, in Midtown Manhattan. To arrive by subway, take the N, Q, or R train to the 57th Street–Seventh Avenue station. Otherwise, take the F train to 57th Street or the B, D, or E to Seventh Avenue. Several buses also stop nearby, including the M5, M7, M10, M20, M31, M57, and M104.

When to Get There
Music performances are generally held in the evening, but plan to arrive early to find your seats, get settled, and visit the coat check. For tours, arrive in the late morning or early afternoon. And to enjoy the Rose Museum, visit anytime between 11am and 4:30pm, or before a performance.

Stick Around After the Performance
Consider the Mix and Mingle series if you're in the mood for socializing and sipping a drink or two. After the concert, patrons gather in the Parterre Bar and enjoy a free drink and refreshments at a 45-minute postconcert soiree. The performers have also been known to pop by to say hello.
