If you’re a University of Michigan alum, a football fan or just interested in a behind-the-scenes stadium tour, The Big House is the “house” to see. The University of Michigan’s football stadium is the largest stadium in all of the U.S. with 107,601 seats, and the second largest in the world. It’s bigger than all the pro stadiums so its name is fitting. The stadium was built in 1927 with original capacity for 72,000 and the ability to extend.
The family-friendly football stadium guided tour offers a history of the stadium, the team and coaches and a few memorable games, too. The tour takes visitors through the press box for the prefect aerial views of the full stadium and then goes down into the Michigan locker room, through the players tunnel and onto the field. Families can hit all of the superstitious and good luck spots along the way. You can slap the Go Blue sign as you walk out of the locker room, run a touchdown pass into the end zone, or take your photo on the 50-yard line. Tours last about 90 minutes.
Monday through Thursday at 10:30 a.m. Tours must be booked at least two weeks in advance and are subject to tour guide availability.
Age or Height Restrictions
Children under 5 are not permitted on the tour.
Things to Know/Bring
