SANTA CLARA -- With the San Francisco 49ers less than three months from opening the new Levi's Stadium, the team has released a bunch of new information for fans -- including how to check out the new digs without paying for game tickets.

The team disclosed that it will begin offering year-round public tours when the Santa Clara stadium opens in August -- at a cost that starts at $25 per person, compared to the cheapest face-value game ticket of $85. The tour includes most of the areas typically accessible to fans during games, along with the locker rooms for the Gold Rush cheerleaders, and conveniently ends at a new team store. Previously, only VIPs could take hard-hat tours.

Also unveiled were the price and details of the newly-named 20,000-square-foot 49ers Museum presented by Sony, which will be open every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Entry will cost $15 for adults, $10 for Santa Clara residents and $5 for kids, seniors and military personnel. Fans will be able to play a pass-and-kick simulator, hop in a play-by-play booth to record calls of classic 49ers plays and use the Xbox Kinect system to simulate a player or cheerleader's moves. A 50-by-18-foot screen inside the Morabito Theater -- named after the team's original owner -- will play movies; a replica of former coach Bill Walsh's Redwood City office will be on display; and the team's Edward J. DeBartolo, Sr. Hall of Fame will feature 26 life-size statues of Niners greats.

The Niners also announced they will open their flagship Team Store at the stadium, which will join existing shops at the Westfield San Francisco Centre and the Valley Fair mall on the San Jose-Santa Clara border. The 13,000-square-foot store also opens in August and features specialty shops for Nike, New Era, Mitchell & Ness and, of course, Levi's.

While the 49ers have been racking up vague "founding partner" sponsorship deals with various companies for more than a year, it's now assigned their corporate names to parts of the stadium. Among the most visible are the two open-air platforms at the top of the two stadium main entrances: the Bud Light Patio behind the south end zone and the Pepsi Fan Deck on the north end.

Other deals include: the Visa Box Office, the NRG Solar Terrace atop the suite tower, the Verizon Press Level Dining Room eight floors up in the suite tower, and the Levi's 501 Club and the Yahoo Fantasy Football Lounge each four stories up. Then there's the Intel Plaza Gate A, the Dignity Health Plaza Gate C, and clubs named after BNY Mellon and Brocade.
