Madison Square Garden Tours

star-4
17 Reviews
Madison Square Garden
Billed as “the world’s most famous arena,” Madison Square Garden—colloquially known as the Garden—has been a mecca of sports and entertainment for over half a century. Home to the New York Knicks and New York Rangers, the Midtown Manhattan venue also regularly hosts wrestling and other sports events, concerts with world-renowned artists, and more.
 
The Basics
Madison Square Garden is a popular stop on hop-on, hop-off bus tours or private driving tours of New York, while cycling and walking tours also pause outside the landmark. You can also spy it from the skies on a helicopter tour of Manhattan, or get a behind-the-scenes tour included with a New York Sightseeing or FreeStyle Pass. The legendary venue hosts games, concerts, and other performances all year long, so you can also get a ticket for a dose of competition or entertainment. Book event tickets on Ticketmaster—Madison Square Garden’s official online ticket platform—or at the box office, typically open 10am to 6pm Monday to Saturday.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Madison Square Garden, especially tours of its inner workings, is ideal for sports fans.
  • Tours are held daily from 9:30am to 3pm.
  • Check MSG’s website for a list of banned items, including outside food and drink, video cameras, selfie sticks, and oversized bags.
  • In addition to the main arena, Madison Square Garden also hosts the more intimate Hulu Theater, plus restaurants, bars, and shops.
  • Collapsible strollers are welcome at events, so long as they fit under your seat.
  • The venue is accessible to visitors with mobility, sight, or hearing issues.
 
How to Get There
Located in Midtown Manhattan, Madison Square Garden is just steps from Penn Station, which is serviced by the 1, 2, 3, A, C, or E subway, and New Jersey Transit or Long Island Railroad trains. You can also walk from the B, D, F, M, N, Q, R, or W subway at 34th Street/Herald Square, which is just minutes away; if arriving from New Jersey, get off the PATH Train at 33rd Street. Madison Square Garden is also easily accessible via bus or taxi, or on foot.
 
When to Get There
Madison Square Garden hosts roughly 320 events per year, so there’s no bad time to visit to take in games, concerts, and other performances. The New York Knicks (basketball) and the New York Rangers (ice hockey) both typically play between October and April.

Madison Square Garden’s Most Famous Visitors
Since its opening in 1968, Madison Square Garden has hosted some of the world’s biggest artists and celebrities. All genres of musicians—including John Lennon, Elvis Presley, Elton John, Billy Joel, Madonna, U2, Taylor Swift, and Andrea Bocelli—have taken to its stage. The venue has even hosted Pope John Paul II and Pope Francis. And every February, the Garden hosts two Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show competitions.
