You'll learn about:

  • The history of the founding of the United Nations
  • The historic decisions that led to the siting of the United Nations Building
  • How urban planning has a role in the mission of the United Nations
  • How the United Nations operates and receive a behind-the-scenes look at the U.N. at work

This tour of the U.N. headquarters building will be a unique opportunity to experience one of the world’s most recognized and iconic buildings. The standard U.N. tour allows visitors to see the newly renovated General Assembly Hall, the Security Council Chamber, the Trusteeship Council Chamber, and the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) Chamber in the renovated Conference Building. Visitors will also learn about how the United Nations addresses issues such as disarmament, peace and security, human rights, and the Millennium Development Goals.
