Carnegie Hall

881 Seventh Ave, New York, NY, 10019

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.
