Get A Bird's Eye View Of Boston At The Skywalk Observatory

The city of Boston is beautiful when viewed from the harbor, the river, and even right on the street in the thick of things - but have you ever seen our magnificent city from 700 feet in the air?

The Skywalk Observatory, located on the 50th floor of the Prudential Center, provides 360 degree views of the Hancock Tower, Fenway Park, the Boston Common, and countless other landmarks. 

When the air is clear, visitors can see up to 100 miles in any direction.

Take a personalized tour of the city with the observatory's exclusive Acoustiguide audio tour handsets, offering versions for children and adults in six languages. Or choose to explore at your own pace.

In addition to the extraordinary bird's eye view of the city, the Skywalk Observatory features the Dreams of Freedom Museum, celebrating Boston's rich history, storied past, architecture, and  global culture.

Did you know that one out of every three Boston residents was born abroad? Or that more than 140 different languages are spoken in our city?

As one of the world's most culturally diverse cities, immigration has played a major role in shaping Beantown.

The museum and three-screen theater immerse vistors in the sights and sounds of Boston's diverse history and hopes for the future.

Be sure to catch both short films continually running at the Skywalk's state-of-the-art multi-media movie theater. “Wings Over Boston,” offers an up-close feel of the entire city, and “Dreams of Freedom,” takes you on a journey through time, exploring the history of the people who built Boston and made it what it is today.

Open from 10 AM to 10 PM seven days a week through early November, admission to the Skywalk Observatory includes the audio Tour, Dreams of Freedom Museum and the multimedia movie theater.
