Weekly Public UN Children's Tour
We launched our new Children’s Tours for elementary school children in February 2013. The tour is tailored to children aged 5 and 12 years. During the one hour tour the Security Council, disarmament, peacekeeping and Millennium Development Goals are explained in a "kid-friendly" way.
We have scheduled a weekly UN Children's Tour at 4:15 p.m. every Thursday.
Starting in June 2013, Children’s Tour tickets will only be available through online purchases. Please note that tour tickets will NOT be sold on premises and a guided tour ticket for visitors is required to enter the UN Headquarters.
