    Hey there. I live in California and I am making a trip to Wisconsin this summer, and I'm planning on spending a day in Green Bay, as I have never been. My brother and I want to check out the stadium, including the atrium, the HOF, and Curlys Pub.

    I'm writing to see if anyone out there could give some info/tips on visting the stadium, so I can get the most out of my day. We are likely going to be there Friday August, which is a "no public practice" day, and a day before a preseason game vs Seattle. Will there any limitations to seeing the stadium any times of that day? Are there certain hours I should be there?

    If you have any tips or suggestions on seeing the stadium they would be appreciated.

    Thanks!!

    The Stadium Tour is about $11 now but during training camp and especially days on or near an ehibition game the tours may not be running. Go to the Atrium first thing in the morning when it opens in order to get a ticket for a tour if they are running (chances are they will) because they sell out quickly that time of year.

    The Hall of Fame will be open so that will most likely be the main attraction for going since you can count on visiting that attraction.

    If you have time, spend a couple hours tailgating in the parking lot. :)

    When we were there I seem to recall that Hall of Fame tickets were part of the tour. The tour didn't go there but you got free tickets...

    On the tour you get to out the tunnel which is WAY COOL. If you have a chunk of spare $$$ check out Brett Favre's Steakhouse. It's on Holmgren way just across from the Oneida entrance.

    I don't think that's true unless things changed.

    That is true almost all the time. The tunnel has been closed the last couple of months because they're resurfacing the field. They still take you out into the bowl area but not via the tunnel.

    You know - the HOF may have been part of our Hotel package. I know we got 'em free <g>

    Hopefully the tunnel will be open when he goes.

    Again, thanks for the info.

    Sorry to throw a monkeywrench into things but it looks like we are going to buy some tickets to the game on Saturday, so we want to check out whatever we can earlier in the day. I went onto the lambeaufield.com and saw that there are no stadium tours on home gamedays. I'm assuming this applies to preseason games too, even if the game isn't until 7PM?

    So you are saying that if we have game tickets we can get into the atrium whenever it opens and experience everything EXCEPT the tour that day? And the gates to the Atrium open at 8AM?

    The tour would be awesome, but we figure that this is probably the only chance us Southern Californians will be able to see a Packer game in Green Bay. I've been to four here in Calif, but its a whole different experience. We can always check out the tour next time we are in Wisconsin.

    Again, thanks for all the info. Hope I'm not bugging you guys too much.

    If you have to choose between a tour or a game, it's an easy answer: THE GAME! To be honest, the tour isn't really that good. I think the highlights for most people are to sit in the bowl area and go through the tunnel.

    Here's the Lambeau Tour in brief: Start outside by the statues to hear a little Packer history. (Curly Lambeau started the team when he approached the ACME Meat Packing Company, yada yada yada). Go up into the Club level and look at Lambeau Field through a luxury box. Take an elevator down to a service area and go through the tunnel and the field itself. Sit in the seats a little bit while you check out the bowl.

    It's a nice time but I doubt if it's the highlight of any pilgramage to NFL Mecca.

    Tickets for the preseason games are cheap and easy to get and the atmosphere is pretty much the same as a regular season game. I've been to preseason games that were BETTER than regular season games.

    If you're going to the game don't forget to get there early and tailgate at Lambeau Field.

    That all beats taking the tour and sitting in an empty stadium for 5 minutes pretending to imagine what it's like. Y' know?

    Just shower and wear clean underwear when you're here. :)

    Are you only going to be there the one day? We went to see the Steeler (my team) game in '05 and made a week out of it. Ok so my wife's family is there as well but...

    I agree if it has to be Tour vs Game it's Game hands down. Once you see the place from the outside though and start feeling the mystique you'll wish you gotten as much out of your visit as possible.

    The Atrium is open something like 363 days a year (or more). You can go in there any time - no tickets necessary.
