Tour the World-Famous Diplomatic Collective at the United Nations Headquarters
Located along the East River in Midtown Manhattan, this 18-acre site of international diplomacy welcomes over 1 million visitors from around the world each year. Founded after WW II, the United Nations was built to facilitate harmony and agreements among nations, promote democracy, and human rights to end wars. With 193-member states, the dynamic institution currently oversees over 120,000 peacekeepers in 16 operations on four continents, provides vaccinations to 58 percent of the world's children, and aids more than 34 million refugees.
See the world-famous diplomatic collective in action and take a one-hour guided tour of the United Nations. Journey through the corridors of international diplomacy, learn about the history of the UN, and visit the General Assembly Hall, the Trusteeship Council Chamber, and the Economic and Social Council Chambers.
