The Guided Tours Unit officially launched an exciting Children's Tour for elementary school children in February 2013. The tour is tailored for children aged 5 to 10 years. During the tour the work of the Security Council, and issues such as the promotion of human rights, disarmament, peacekeeping, and the Sustainable Development Goals are explained in a fun, simple, and "kid-friendly" way.
UN Children's Tour tickets are only available through online purchase. Please note that a child/children must be accompanied by at least one adult or a chaperone. Therefore, please ensure that you purchase the required number of tickets for children ($13 per child) plus the required number of adults accompanying the child/children ($22 per adult). Visit our Tickets page to purchase tickets for a Children's Tour.
New York City Elementary schools, private and public organisations, with groups larger than 40 school children should purchase tickets through Group Reservations.
More about our Children's Tour:
With the help of a "UN Compass" and accompanied by the "UN Kids" - Peeka, Ibrahim, Lei Lei, Fabien, Elena and Luis - children aged 5 to 10 years will have the opportunity to explore the United Nations with fun and ease. Interactive games, quizzes, puzzles and more will help young visitors understand the work of the Organization and how it relates to their daily lives.
Together with their parents or teachers they will hear about children from all around the world who face challenges such as hunger, natural disasters or diseases, and learn what the United Nations is doing to help them overcome these difficulties.
The United Nations Children's Tour will provide a fun and memorable experience!
