St. Patrick's Cathedral is one of New York City’s most popular springtime destination, please make tour reservations in advance. Please always remember that St. Patrick’s is an active Catholic church and it is likely that a wedding, mass or baptism will be taking place during your visit. Special events may require portions of the cathedral to be temporarily roped off. Please speak with an usher to find out when those areas will be re-opened for touring. Guests are welcome to return to complete any incomplete tour.
The Apple ipads provided for the audio tour are cleaned and sanitized with Morton Pro.

Morton® Pro is formulated from salt, ensuring our guests won’t experience any toxic chemical contact with the equipment while touring.
