Transamerica Pyramid Tours

star-4
1 Review
Transamerica Pyramid
The Transamerica Pyramid was the eighth-tallest building in the world when it was finished in 1972. But no matter its ranking, this 853-foot (260-meter) office building continues to be a symbol of the city. With its distinctive shape and white quartz exterior, the Transamerica Pyramid is a special part of the San Francisco Skyline.
 
The Basics
The Transamerica Pyramid is located on the northern edge of San Francisco’s Financial District. The observation deck was closed after the events of 9/11, so the building is no longer open to the public, but you can check out the 48th-floor view via a live camera feed in the visitor center. You can also get a look at the building on a movie sites tour, helicopter flight, bay cruise, or a Segway adventure.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Pyramid is a commercial building and is open on business days only.
  • The visitor’s center is located on the Plaza Level off Clay Street.
  • A historical display features videos and information about the Pyramid.
  • Driving to the Pyramid is not recommended, as street parking is limited.
 
How to Get There
Muni buses 1 and 41 stop near the Pyramid, or you can take BART or the light rail to the Montgomery station and walk north six blocks.
 
When to Get There
Go during the business day to get a feel for the daily bustle of the Financial District, or head there after-hours if you prefer to walk around in a quieter environment.
 
Transamerica Redwood Park
You don’t have to travel to Muir Woods to see redwood trees—this small green space adjacent to the Pyramid is home to redwoods, a fountain, and benches. It’s a surprising bit of nature in the middle of the city, and a nice place to take a break from walking.
Address: 600 Montgomery Street, San Francisco, California, USA 94111, USA
