We spent an hour parking and walking around to find correct entrance. We finally talked to security who informed us it closed in March along with the restaurant. Nowhere did we see online it was closed. In fact one website was selling tickets! Google even has not updated this.

I would recommend visiting the observatory at the start of your visit to Boston. We went here on our last day and it was so interesting to see where everything was in the city. I think if we went on our first day we may of planned our days a little better. It was great to wonder round and listen to the history of the city and hear more about the landmarks.

As far as I know, this is the highest publicly-accessible observation deck in Boston. It provides great views of the city. The are a lot of informative materials. The staff is friendly. The deck isn’t crowded. Even though the deck’s lights are dimmed after sunset, it’s not easy to take photos due to reflections, but it’s an issue for most of the observation decks, not just this one. If you have troubles taking photos, just watch, enjoy and remember :)

Great views 360 degrees around the whole tower, lots of educational displays and short movies about history of boston, etc. It’s all indoor, which makes it nice year-round, but for me to give the 5th star it would need the addition of an outdoor section (even if it was a small one) to get the full raw experience of being up that high and fully soaking in the city view. Good activity for an hour or two, worth it.

Loved our visit here, definitely worth the entrance fee. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the audio device you carry around explains both the history and views as you look out over the city and surrounding areas. We had a beautiful sunny morning when we visited so could really see for miles. My daughter asked if she could use her UK student card for discount and this was easily accepted. Lots of information on how Boston was built with immigrants from all over the world, and continues this tradition now. Very poignant in today's climate.
