Your tour begins at our Main Gift Shop. Located just across the street from St. Patrick’s Cathedral on 51st Street. Walk along the church on 51st and look across the way just before Madison Avenue.
If you have pre-ordered a tour and clicked that you will pick up your Tour Passes, the main gift shop is where you will find them. Our staff will help you connect to our WiFi, download the tourpatron app and key in your unlock codes to get underway. All tours of St. Patrick’s are self guided due to ongoing Mass and to be respectful of the faithful in prayer.
Your Tour Pass includes use of our Samsung Tablets and free disposable headphone. Due to COVID19 many of our guests chose to use their own smartphones and headphone.
We sanitize our tablets between each guest with AVIAIR.
AVIAIR is 100% Coronavirus/COVID19 effective, yet skin safe and non toxic.
Please go to The App Store or Google Play Store to download The TourPatron app. If touring with your own device, this step is required in order to take the tour.
We offer our Official Tour in English, Spanish, Italian, French and Portuguese. We also take great pride in our kids tour (currently only available in English).
The TourPatron App requires an unlock code. The unlock codes are printed on the back of The Tour Pass Laminate. Please erase the pre-loaded code and type in your unique code from the laminate. TourPatron will then ask you to select your language and tour.
Our purpose is to educate and to share as much as we can about St. Patrick’s Cathedral during your visit. We hope you will return often as we have many new tours planned including a stained glass window tour and an architectural tour. We hope to see you again soon.
