What to expect

Go on an exclusive behind­-the-­scenes tour for an unforgettable VIP experience of the iconic Empire State Building. You will avoid the long lines and meet your official Observatory Ambassador who will take you on an intimate tour for a unique look at this can't-miss skyscraper with priority access to the 86th floor. Enjoy unparalleled views of the city skyline and commemorate this unforgettable experience with a complimentary souvenir photograph.

Don't forget to stop and explore the new, 2nd-floor exhibits on the way to the top. Travel back in time and witness the evolution of the Empire State Building with interactive and immersive exhibits, from the days of construction in the 1920s to cementing its place in the pop culture of today. View the Empire State Building's original floor plans, understand how the building became a leader in sustainability, learn about the tenants who work on the hidden floors and watch highlights of the building's starring role in films since the 1930s.

The revamped 80th floor features exciting, artistic exhibits and an opportunity to create a customized NYC itinerary with NYC & Company’s Above and Beyond kiosks. Make your way up to the 86th floor Observatory, outfitted with heaters to heat the deck during colder months, so you can stay warm while taking in the spectacular views of the Big Apple. Finally, reach the jewel at the top of the center of NYC--the newly renovated 102nd floor--with floor-to-ceiling windows and glass elevator with sound and light effects.
