In the heart of Pennsylvania’s cultural capital, 57 stories high in the 945-foot skyscraper known as the One Liberty Place building is the One Liberty Observation Deck. At an admission cost of $10 for Youth (3-11) & $15 for Adults (12+). Visitors get to experience Philadelphia from an angle and view they’ve likely never seen before.
Sunrise or City Lights
The observation deck is a large room of windows from wall to wall to ceiling. The location provides a breath-taking 360-degree view of the Philadelphia skyline, the Schuylkill River, and beyond. Guests can experience the view in the morning or at night for very different perspectives. Visitors can explore the city from the height further by using “Go Find Your Philly Interactive Boards” to see closeup views of the Philadelphia architecture and learn about its history. The recommended stay of a visit is between 60-75 minutes.
Art and History Beyond the View
There is a noticeable artistic element to the deck that reflects Philly’s art scene–and this is aside from the observation decks stunning architecture or the view from the windows. One Liberty also pays homage to the historically rich background of Philadelphia by offering history tours on deck. History appreciation prevails on the deck with a giant bust sculpture of none other than Philadelphia-native Ben Franklin himself.
The One Liberty Observation deck is more than simply the best view in Philadelphia, it has cultural meanings too. Without moving far at all, you can have a city-wide tour and genuine Philadelphia experience from the 57th floor.
