Tours at 11.30 and 12.30, duration 45 mins. We saw the halls, a photo exhibition and the museum. Interesting tour, histories of years, almost demolished. There is a tiny gift shop with clever and amusing Carnegie themed products.

Canergie Hall is just about money! If you want to play or sing in Canergie Hall all you have to do is PAY (a lot!). So anyone who is able to pay for it can just sing or play there. Even not being a professional......More

Only had time to catch a piano recital in the Weill Recital Hall. Wonderful, warm acoustics in a space with several hundred seats but also an intimate feeling.

We attend many concerts, recitals, and orchestral performances at this legendary venue. But we never tire of its elegance and its outstanding acoustics for the many outstanding performances held here.

The sound is going to be awesome wherever you sit so unless you just enjoy watching people play instruments I'd go for the side balcony. It is somewhat more roomy in the front row and the chairs are much more comfortable.
