Top ways to experience Radio City Music Hall
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
How to get there
  • 47–50 Sts – Rockefeller Center • 3 min walk
  • 5th Ave / 53rd St • 4 min walk

    Radio City Staff made our 36th Anniversary special
    I went to see Tony, Toni, Tone on 09/30/23@8p.m. I know this is for tours. However I had to write this review. The staff at Radio City that night was so awesome And I mean everyone. First let me Thank David I pray that's your name you made sure my husband had a wheelchair you were awesome. Thank you Jose for the exit escort wheelchair service. Thank you to the guy outside holding the sign directing traffic to 50th street he saw my husband needed help and he immediately jumped into action to get the needed help. Thank-You all for making our 36th anniversary celebration special. I cried everyone was so pleasant.

    Back In The Day...
    Before the internet and television were things there was radio and Radio City Music Hall was where many shows in the USA were broadcast from. The building is very grand and in keeping with the style when radio was king. I particularly love the ventilation grates on the side of the building with stylised patterns.

    Fabulous Radio City Hall Rocketts
    The Christmas show with the Rocketts was fabulous. Our family of 8 loved the production. Everything was wonderful and keeping the birth of Christ in the performance was so inspiring. Thank you. Most memorable of our six days in NYC

    Glorious, historical performance space
    This NYC theatre is situated in the heart of the entertainment neighborhood and is the home of world-famous performances such as the Rockettes. It's gorgeously decorated - you can really feel the history of previous and ongoing shows that've performed on this storied stage. The space is humongous; it looked like it could seat thousands of people. We came here to see the Rockettes and could've just enjoyed wandering through the building. I'll add that getting through security here was a bit stressful, as the security guards were extra vigilant and kept barking orders at everyone. (I understand the necessity of herding thousands of people through the lines, but it felt like airport security.)

    The Rockettes are amazing!
    We have seen the Rockettes two years in a row. While the show was the same, so was the entertainment. We thoroughly enjoyed the performance. It just brings a smile to my 17-year old daughter’s face. She loves dance and this show brings it all. It certainly hits the Christmas theme all out. While the amount of people circling to get into the building for each performance can seem daunting, we arrived about 30 minutes early and got in with plenty of time. In fact, we were some of the first to our seats. (There are lots of concessions/souvenir stands and the theatre itself is quite stunning.).

    Everything I imagined it to be
    Everything I dreamed it would be and more! My mom and I attended the Radio City Christmas Spectacular with a tour group the second weekend of December. What a show! I have always loved the Rockettes and seeing them in their theater at Christmas brought tears to my eyes many times during the performance. We had excellent seats on the first row center of the first mezzanine and I loved every minute. The theater is simply gorgeous. Great souvenirs in ornaments, t-shirts, etc. This was my favorite thing we did in New York and so thankful I got to go!

I really enjoyed the tour of this iconic venue, something I was aware existed but didn't know much about. The hall is awesome, the scale is something that is hard to comprehend. The foyer and other areas have such a wonderful art deco style that I was happiest just roaming those spaces.

There are quite a lot of stairs when doing the backstage parts of the tour so if you find that difficult I believe they have lifts available and the staff were very helpful to accommodate those that need assistance.

Keith was fantastic! I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it was such a cool tour. I was with a school group and even the 14 year olds loved it.

I had an issue on the bus that made me late for my assigned time but the staff was very friendly and helped me to get into another tour so I wouldn't miss out on the experience.
The tour guide knew the information like that back of her hand and was just great!

Anyone visiting New York City who is a die-hard fan of "Home Alone" can remember this place. It was my first stop when I was in Manhattan.

I have seen this Theatre for many years, I have taken pictures of the outside but had never been inside before this tour. I had no idea of what to expect, or even what the inside looked like. This tour took us behind the scenes of this iconic landmark, gave us time to stand on the stage where the world's largest performing artist, presidents, and king makers have stood. The tour was a mix of a world history lesson, amazing feets of engineering and some good old glitz and glamour. This tour was informative and felt like a opportunity to see back stage of one of the most important American theatres. A great afternoon

One of the best tours we have been on.our guide Christopher was amazing and so knowledgeable. I didn’t know too much about this place but I came out knowing lots and so much more. The music hall itself is stunning and the story of Roxy was so interesting. We also got to meet a Rockette which was a lovely touch. I can’t recommend this tour enough. By far was one of my most favourite moments of being in New York.

Have been to NY many times but had never been inside Radio City so decided to do the tour with My daughter
Wowww was so lucky we were the only people on the tour so was like a private one - was amazed about the history and decor of the building and so glad it was given listed building status as would have been a crime to knock it down
Definitely worth an hour or so of your time to see the inside and get the history of the building
