What you can expect
Soaring 1,454 feet above Midtown Manhattan from base to antenna, the Empire State Building (ESB) is the World’s Most Famous Building. Our 86th Floor Observation Deck, open daily from 11am-11pm, offers the highest 360 degree open-air vantage point in New York City and on a clear day, you can see up to six states–New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Connecticut and Massachusetts. Open daily from 11am-11pm., along with a gift shop filled with exclusive items, there are eight in-building dining options including the contemporary cuisine of STATE Grill and Bar and Tacombi, an authentic taqueria. Located at the center of it all, the Empire State Building is an easy walk from Times Square and just steps to Macy’s, Madison Square Garden and Penn Station.
Starting with the spectacular new entrance which opened last August, the second floor galleries allow guests to walk through a museum experience and enjoy a journey into The Empire State Building history and mystique. The multiple hands-on exhibits take visitors of all ages back in time through storytelling that begins from the inspiration, to the construction, and to its current place in pop culture.
This Empire State Building ticket gives you access to the legendary New York landmark, allowing you to climb 1,050 Ft (320 m) high and enjoy unobstructed 360-degree views of New York City. Don’t miss out on this incredible experience! What's more, you'll enjoy 2 attractions for the price of one, with access to the observatory plus the ESB interactive museum.
