A Big Welcome For Our Youngest Visitors

Understanding that families and their young children may have special concerns, we offer some guidelines and suggestions to help your experience go smoothly.

October 14, 2017: PJ Masks Live at The Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden.

For thousands of families, it is a special moment — when they encounter one of The Madison Square Garden Company’s venues in a new way, through the eyes of their children taking it all in for the first time.

Unsurprisingly, the experience — whether at The Garden, Radio City Music Hall, the Beacon Theatre, or Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden — comes with a few basic questions that boil down to this: What do you need to know to create a memory that will last for years?

With this in mind, MSG offers a number of services, accommodations and policies specifically geared to our youngest guests and to the concerns of their mothers and fathers.

Here are some helpful tips and reminders:

  • For most events, all children who have reached their second birthday require a ticket for our venues, including The Garden, Radio City Music Hall, the Beacon Theatre and The Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden.
  • For many events, any child who has yet to reach their second birthday does not require a ticket, though they may not occupy their own seat. But please note that for certain events targeted for young children, all kids who have reached their first birthday require a ticket. Children under a year old may attend without the purchase of a ticket, but they must sit on a guardian’s lap.
  • As with all our guests, we encourage you to travel light. That will help get you through our security lines more quickly. You may bring strollers to events, but to streamline the process, it’s best if they are collapsible and fit comfortably under your seat. If necessary, you can check your stroller free of charge.
  • We also offer private and family restrooms at all our venues, and all are equipped with baby changing stations. Nursing mothers can also use these facilities.
  • If you have additional questions or require special accommodations, please visit
  • You can also call our Guest Relations Department at 212-465-6225 or email

As always, our goal is to deliver a timeless experience for you and your entire family.
