NBC Studios

Get a behind-the-scenes look at one of the most famous television studios in New York City, where some of the nation’s best-loved shows are filmed.

Join one of NBC Studios’ regular daily tours to gain a special insight into the magic of television production. See the spaces where shows are scripted and shot and hear exactly what is involved in creating a television show, from initial idea through final editing. 

The studios are located in the iconic Rockefeller Plaza, a complex of skyscrapers built by the wealthy Rockefeller family. The building has been a hub of television and entertainment since the early 20th century. The studios have been running tours since the 1930s, making them the first television studios to offer this kind of experience. These fascinating events are now among the city’s most popular tourist attractions. Book a place on a tour to get a new perspective on the making of shows such as The Tonight Show, Late Night with Seth Meyers and NBC’s best-known production, Saturday Night Live. See the iconic setting that has inspired television shows such as the comedy 30 Rock.

Follow an NBC page through the building, from the beautiful and historic Art Deco Rotunda through to the Production Gallery and two different studios. Enjoy an interactive experience in the Tour Studio, where you can experience being a television producer as you play at creating your own television show.

Take the experience even farther by booking a ticket to be in the audience of a live taping of one of NBC’s famous television shows. Make sure you plan well in advance, as tickets to Saturday Night Live and other shows are popular with New York City residents as well as tourists and get snapped up very quickly.

Find NBC Studios in the iconic 30 Rockefeller Plaza building, which is part of a complex that is now a protected historic landmark. Take the time to explore the rest of the area, which includes such renowned New York City landmarks as Radio City Music Hall, where you can choose from a great lineup of stage shows throughout the year.
