CNN Studio Tours

CNN Studio Tour is permanently closed.

CNN Center was a tourist attraction before the coronavirus pandemic, hosting a food court and other retailers. The building has largely been closed to the public during the pandemic.

The CNN logo atop the CNN Center that has long been a fixture among the Atlanta skyline will soon be no more as the network is moving its operations a few miles north to the Warner Bros. Discovery’s Techwood Turner Broadcasting campus.

Get a behind-the-scenes look at CNN’s global headquarters in Atlanta with this guided studio walking tour. Learn how CNN’s news is written, produced and delivered—and maybe even find some of the anchors hard at work on a live broadcast.

See all the news feeds from CNN bureaus around the world and check out the high-tech special effects studio.
