I've been to several football games here and a few special events. The place is good and not too confusing to navigate. The refreshments aren't too expensive and the staff is helpful and courteous.

What a first-class stadium! Memorial is a classic at the University of Illinois. Come here for football games, concerts, ceremonies, and movies on the big screen. The building is currently going through new renovation which will make it even better. Very accessible to visitors on-foot...More

No tours, just open to the public for events. Check with the University Athlete office there are events that you can attend that don't have the crowds!
