Highlights

  • The World’s Most Famous Building, which celebrated its 90th Anniversary in 2021, is an international symbol of hope, determination, and possibility in the heart of New York City. With the city’s only 360-degree outdoor Observatory and new 102nd Floor Observatory, which offers unobstructed jaw-dropping views through floor-to-ceiling windows, the Empire State Building Observatory is a must-visit attraction.

  • The newly re-imagined experience features a fun-filled, 10 thousand square foot immersive digital and tactile museum that celebrates the Empire State Building from the time it was conceived to its place today in pop-culture; and industry-leading indoor environmental quality and safety protocols for visitor safety and comfort.

  • Open daily, the Empire State Building is a short walk from Times Square and just steps to Macy’s, Madison Square Garden, and Penn Station. 

  • You have not truly experienced New York City until you have visited the world-famous reimagined Empire State Building Observatory.
