General Information

Come and visit the United Nations in the heart of New York City! Our guided tours offer an exciting opportunity to discover and get a behind-the-scenes view of the Organization at work. All tours start in the General Assembly building, entrance at 46th Street and 1st Avenue.

Guided tours are 45-60 minutes long.

For security reasons, children under 5 years of age are not permitted on tour.

Guided Tours offer an engaging way to explore the United Nations Headquarters:

  • Visit the newly renovated General Assembly Hall, the Security Council Chamber, the Trusteeship Council Chamber, and the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) Chamber in the renovated Conference Building.
  • Learn about how the United Nations addresses issues such as disarmament, peace and security, human rights, and the Millennium Development Goals.

Due to high level meetings of Heads of State and Government, and delegations, United Nations Headquarters and meeting Chambers may sometimes close to the public on very short notice.

Find more information on opening hours and tickets.


On your guided tour, you will have the opportunity to interact with one of our 24 multilingual tour guides from 15 countries, speaking 12 languages, with up-to-date information about the work of the United Nations.

Based on availability, tours are offered in the United Nations' six official languages (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian, and Spanish).  Tours in other languages such as German, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Korean and Portuguese are also offered upon request.
