The Yankee Stadium Experience: Touring the Stadium

PART SEVEN: Touring Yankee Stadium

During the season before games and on off-days, the New York Yankees operate official tours of Yankee Stadium that include a visit to some of the venues that have already been discussed here on TGP: The Yankee Stadium Experience.  The "Classic Tour" as shown on the big league team's official website includes the following:

- The Yankees Museum
- Monument Park
- The Dugout
- The Clubhouse
- The Batting Cage Area
You get to visit the Clubhouse!

In the offseason, the dugout, clubhouse, and batting cages are substituted with the Press Box and the Mastercard Batter's Eye Cafe.

The amazing part about this is 1) you don't have to purchase a ticket to a game in order to visit, 2) you have access to the dugout and clubhouse (which is pretty damn cool), and 3) it only costs $20 if purchased online.

Here are some of the specifics you will need to know in order to plan your Yankees tour:

Tickets for the tour can be purchased daily at any Yankees Clubhouse Shop in New York City, at the Yankee Stadium Ticket Window between 9 am and 5 pm, or online at  Tours occur daily all-year round between Monday and Saturday between approximately 12 pm to 1:40 pm although additional tours may be added throughout the day between 9 am and 5 pm if there is a demand.  The typical "classic tour" lasts approximately 45 minutes.  If you are planning on a tour for more than a few of you, make sure to call ahead of time as each tour has a maximum of 35 people and are on a first-come first-serve basis.  The tours start at Gate 6.

You can also call the Tours Department at (646) 977-TOUR.
Step Right Up and Get Yah Tickets He-yah!

Group tours can also be scheduled (during the same time period at purchased through the same means) if you purchased between 15 and 35 tickets.  The cost is reduced to $18 for adults and $16 for children under 14 and Senior Citizens.  Children under 4 are admitted for free.

If you are really wanting to live it up, you can make it a Birthday Bash Tour by celebrating your birthday with a tour and an exclusive party at the Hard Rock Cafe at the Stadium...but it will cost ya!  The Adult Menu is between $45-$55 while the Kids' Menu (10 and under) is $40.

If you have some extra time during a visit to the Stadium, it may be worth the $20 to take a tour during the season, especially if the players are in never know who you might see!
