The tour was interesting to see what goes on at UN; however, security is multi step process. And some of the main rooms may be closed if in use, so you could just get a long tour of hallways. The area outside is attractive, and...More

The exterior architecture of this building is really nice. We weren’t able to take a tour because it is closed on the weekends; tours are during the week from Monday-Friday. The tours last a little over an hour apparently. This building has high security therefore...More

Onu Headquarters is one of the most important visit we've enjoyed in our NYC stay. It is a visit that needs some time because of the required control at the gate but the tour is so well guided that it was worth it.

Very nice to see the gathering rooms, for example the room of the security counsel. Very good guide with interesting information.

The architecture is amazing inside and outside.. It's perfect to stay inside when it's cold like we're there during winter. We didn't take a tour but tours are offered Monday-Friday, between 9:30 am and 4:45 pm and last between 45 minutes and an hour. There...More

Okay, now that I have your attention: I highly recommend the tour. Without it, I'm not sure there's much to see. I went on a gray, drizzly day, which was good and bad. Bad in the sense that I could not walk the grounds and...More

Without a tour there's not as much there as you might imagine but it's still awesome to be part of the atmosphere and history.

I had a couple of hours to spend before leaving for flight home. You have to take ID to a building opposite the UN building and get a pass. I did this at midday and there was no queue. The tours seem to run on...More

You really should be there as indicated as you’ll need to first collect your entry pass which took some time when we went and after, go through security.

I think you would be able to go in for sure; may not be open for a long duration of time, usually, tours move from room to room and don't allow you to deviate from the group

The official tour is most interesting. You go to places you can only visit with a guide. It takes about a hour and we enjoyed it very much. Fascinating info.
