The Cathedral of St. John the Divine warmly welcomes visitors from across the United States and around the world. Hundreds of thousands of people come to the Cathedral each year to discover the unforgettable blend of extraordinary architecture, stunning stained glass, and works of art that include rare 15th-century tapestries, a triptych by Keith Haring, and Edwina Sandys’ Christa. Climb to the rooftop for commanding city views on a Vertical Tour. Led by experienced Cathedral staff, daily tours explore highlights and distinctive aspects of the Cathedral’s history, structure, and artwork. Private group tours are also available. You may also wish to sit in their lush gardens for a place to eat lunch or enjoy a meditative break.

Examples of displays include A Blessing of Animals, organized by the National Sculpture Society, presenting a juried exhibition of monumental bronzes depicting the animal kingdom, from peacocks to dancing bears. A spotlight exhibit on the work of Greg Wyatt, Cathedral Artist in Residence and sculptor of the beloved Peace Fountain, will also be featured, along with works by thirty student artists. The Cathedral invites individuals of all languages and abilities with brochures in ten different languages and ramp accessibility. Admission includes access to St. John the Divine cathedral, its gardens, special exhibitions, and restrooms, as available.
