The elegant Czechoslovakian crystal chandeliers that grace the foyer and auditorium... the beautifully restored hardwood floors of the stage... the fly system that starts in the basement and stretches to the roof... the courtyards that separate the main building from the north and south wings -- Cincinnati's historic Music Hall holds many treasures, and many stories. During a tour, you get a personalized view of the many architectural details of the structure, and you get to hear about the structure's amazing history and the people who created and maintained it.

SPMH is looking for volunteer tour guides! Call the SPMH office at (513) 744-3293 and leave a message letting us know you are interested in training to be a tour guide in Cincinnati's historic Music Hall!

Tours are provided by members of the Society for the Preservation of Music Hall and include both public and non-public areas of the structure. Tours can be tailored to your needs and there are no time restrictions. Music Hall is accessible to individuals with disabilities; however, more intensive tours are available and would require that participants be able to walk for an extended period of time. Tours can even be structured to meet the needs of educators and students.

While tours are generally conducted weekdays between 9am and 3pm, some tours can be held before a performance at the hall.

Tours are for groups of at least 10 people and carry a small fee of $2 per person, with financial consideration given to schools and non-profit organizations. All tour fees go to the Society for the Preservation of Music Hall as a donation. For a separate fee, a luncheon at Music Hall can be arranged for your group.

The Music Hall tour is a special event that you don't want to miss! Download the Tour and Lunch Request Form which contains all the necessary information. It requires Adobe Acrobat software, which can be downloaded here for free.

If you prefer, you can set up the tour through the Music Hall office by calling (513) 744-3344.
