Updated: May 24, 2016 - 12:31 pm

The Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority (MSFA) and SMG has unveiled the schedule for the U.S. Bank Stadium Public Tours, a year-round, guided tour program for the community to explore the new home of the Minnesota Vikings.

The tours include a behind-the-scenes look at the clubs and suites, the press box and the Minnesota Vikings Locker Room.

“Well-informed tour guides will lead the exploration of the stadium, sharing facts and figures that highlight the Nordic-inspired architectural features, iconic ethylene-tetraflourlouroethylene (ETFE) roof structure and the signature glass pivoting doors,” said Michele Kelm-Helgen, chair of the MSFA. “U.S. Bank Stadium Tours also include an opportunity to take in the one-of-a-kind Minnesota-based art collection furnished by the Minnesota Vikings.”

Tickets for the tours will go on sale beginning Thursday, May 26 at 10 a.m. at ticketmaster.com, by phone at 1-800-745-3000 and at all Ticketmaster Outlets.

Private and group tours may be booked by calling 612-777-8776 or emailing tours@usbankstadium.com beginning May 26.

Tours are wheelchair accessible and ADA assistance will be provided upon request.

On Saturday and Sunday, July 23 and 24, there will be an open house to celebrate the grand opening of the stadium. All are welcome, as there are activities planned for all ages. A sneak peak of the main concourse, club space and other interior stadium locations will be included in the Open House.

Tickets for the Open House are free to the public and will be available at a later date.

The U.S. Bank Stadium, owned and operated by MSFA, is a multi-purpose stadium. The stadium, located downtown Minneapolis, is able to seat 65,400 people.

The stadium has been chosen as the site of Super Bowl LII (2018) and the NCAA Men’s Final Four in 2019.
