Walt Disney Concert Hall Self-Guided Tours

The self-guided audio tours now available

The Music Center offers free self-guided audio tours of its iconic Walt Disney Concert Hall year-round. The fully revamped tour takes visitors through the Concert Hall’s history from conception to completion. Narrated by Emmy and Tony Award-winning actor John Lithgow, the tour provides insight from visionary architect Frank Gehry and other key contributors.

New technology allows visitors to use their smartphones to follow the tour and hear behind-the-scenes details about the planning, thought and design that went into the construction of this architectural and auditory masterpiece. For visitors not using a smartphone, Podcatchers are available at the Tour Check-In table.

Please note: Tours will be closed on November 20-21, 25-26 and 28, 2021.
