Heinz Field holds a place of esteem for just about any fan of professional football. While the stadium is best experienced on game day, tickets can be hard to come by. Alternatively, see the stadium on a 90-minute guided tour, and enjoy a behind-the-scenes look at the field, press box, club lounges, and other areas typically off-limits to the public.
Visitors with game tickets can take a shorter tour on game day, with a chance for pregame selfies on the sideline.
