Get floored 57 floors up with the best views in town! Located in the heart of Center City Philadelphia, One Liberty Observation Deck is easily accessible and within walking distance to other major attractions. And since we're open 365 days a year, morning, noon and night, you can take in the wonders by sunlight or starlight, while the city bustles on a hot summer day or while it's peacefully covered by a blanket of snow.

One Liberty Observation Deck offers sweeping views of the region. Climb 57 stories up (via a state-of-the-art elevator experience) to the enclosed deck to get a top-down look at iconic sights like City Hall, the Ben Franklin Parkway, the Ben Franklin Bridge, the stadium complex, University City and the rest of Philadelphia. It's Brotherly Love from above.

The city's newest vantage point is more than just a view. It is the total Brotherly Love experience. Upon arrival to the ground floor of One Liberty Observation Deck, you'll be introduced to #TheRealPhilly. Learn about the city's proud history and place in Americana, as well as take in images inspired by the nationally recognized Philadelphia Mural Arts Program, including the floor-to-ceiling sized Wyeth-esque mural by Gregory Manchess.

You'll be greeted by a pair of giant feet belonging to a certain larger-than-life Philadelphia icon who we're pretty sure you'll recognize. Follow the kite string to the 57th floor to find out who those feet belong to. HINT: He wears bifocals and flies a kite. Along with great views, the building features three state-of-the-art audio zones that narrate the monumental moments in Philly pop culture, music, and sports.

We were in Philly for the Flower Show and we wanted to see the entire city from above. It wasn’t busy at all and you really got some great views. Wish we could have stayed until sunset. We enjoyed all the extra info that Philly Phred gave us!

This was my favorite moment in our visit to Central City, Philadelphia. The view is amazing, the guide, I think his name is Gale, gave us a lot of information of sites we could visit in that day. He recommended places to visit for eating, and historical sites. We bought the tickets online and we saved a little on the purchase. Overall it’s a must visit location.

Wasn't expecting much from this little trip to the top of One Liberty. But, I was surprised right from the start! The video on the way to the top was pretty cool! And informative! Once at the top, the maps and tour guides were incredibly helpful! Our guide, I think his name is Jerry, was full of knowledge that I did not know! And I haved lived in Philly for over 57 years!!! Great place to visit! A little pricey ($16 per person), But my family thinks it was worth it! And you can relax at the top, they do not rush you out!
