One Liberty Observation Deck Tours

1 Review
Enjoy the view from the top at Philadelphia's One Liberty Observation Deck. Located on the 57th floor of One Liberty Place, the observation deck features sweeping 360-degree views of the city from 883 feet (269 meters) above street level. Interactive touch screen technology lets you zoom in for a closer look at the city below.

The Basics
Your observation deck experience begins on the ground floor when you hear the stories of Philadelphia and its place in the nation’s history. Learn about famous historical figures and their Philadelphia connections, before ascending up to the enclosed viewing platform, where an enormous bust of Benjamin Franklin greets you the moment you step off the elevator. Enjoy views of the whole city from a different vantage point.

For those looking to save money, entry to the observation deck is included with many hop-on hop-off sightseeing tours. There’s also a popular 48-hour Sun and Stars Pass good for two visits, so you can see the daytime panoramic view and the city lights.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Buy your tickets in advance to avoid waiting in line at the ticket counter.
  • Expect to spend about an hour taking in views of “Philly from the top.”
  • The observation deck is accessible to wheelchairs, strollers, and scooters, and offers restrooms and a gift shop.
  • Guided tours are free with paid admission to One Liberty Observation Deck.
  • There are numerous parking garages within walking distance of the tower.
 
How to Get There
There are several ways to reach One Liberty Observation Deck, located at 1650 Market Street in Center City (Philly’s walkable downtown). Most visitors arrive as part of a hop-on hop-off city sightseeing tour or by public transport—Trolley Works, Philadelphia Sightseeing Tours, Big Bus, Philly Phlash, and SEPTA all stop within easy walking distance of the observation deck.

When to Get There
One Liberty Observation Deck is open 365 days a year from 10am to 9pm (8pm during fall/winter and holidays), and there isn’t really a bad time to visit. For an entirely different Philly perspective, come at night when millions of lights illuminate the city below.

Center City Highlights
After taking in unforgettable top-down views from the observation deck, visit Love Park, City Hall, Rittenhouse Square, and Reading Terminal Market—all just a short walk away. Other must-see Center City highlights include Old City, Society Hill, South Street, and Chinatown. Visitors who want to avoid the hassle of driving or navigating public transportation can opt for a hop-on hop-off sightseeing tour of Philadelphia.
