  • Overview
    A trip to the 86th floor observatory of the Empire State Building is a pilgrimage of sorts. It’s a bucket-list entry for millions of people, worldwide. For some, it’s a chance to step into a scene from one of their favorite movies. For others, it’s an up-close encounter with an important piece of architectural history. Whatever your reason for going, one thing is for certain: The view of the New York skyline will leave an indelible imprint on your memory.

    Retrofitted in 2009 for environmental reasons and others, the Empire State Building won a gold Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design award in 2011. Be sure to check out the modern Sustainability exhibit on the 2nd floor. It highlights the state-of-the-art technology and innovative methods that went into the $120,000,000 project with the use of digital displays, sculptures, and real building material.

    After an elevator ride to the 80th floor, you’ll discover the original documents, period photos, and architectural notes that went into the planning and construction of one of the most recognizable skyscrapers in the world at the Dare to Dream exhibit. Then, it’s time for another elevator ride to the 86th floor and the iconic, open-air observatory of the Empire State Building. What you then do from 86 stories above the New York streets is up to you!
