"A mandatory visit" United Nations Tip by Quartzy

United Nations, New York City: 88 reviews and 143 photos

  General Assembly
by Quartzy

The UN guided tour was way more interesting than I was expecting, and it made me realize I didn't know as much as I thought I did about it!

We got to sit in all three council's meeting rooms as well as in the general assembly room, which in itself is an experience. The building is filled with interesting and impressive works of art with particular meanings.

The visit takes about 45 minutes to an hour, and it's really worth it, trust me!

Address: The Visitors' Entrance is located on First Avenue.
Directions: Subway: number 4,5,6 or 7 trains to Grand Central Station; walk on 42nd Street to First Avenue.
Phone: 212-963-TOUR (8687)
