“Lovely Views”
Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

Had great views from the skywalk, and it was a clear day so you could see for miles. Howver there was no picture guides letting you know what you were seeing, so I didnt really know what I was looking at.
I also thought it was expensive for what it was, although we did enjoy it.

“More than the best view of Boston, Skywalk provides the most comprehensive history of the city.”
Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

Perched atop Boston's second tallest building, the Prudential Center, the Skywalk Museum provides the best view and perspective of this landmark City. The tour includes headsets that deliver a comprehensive history of all of Boston's unique neighborhoods. It describes much more than history. It shares the story of the city's unique neighborhoods. The narration is available in French and Japanese. I wish they offered more language options. Open till 10 o'clock during the spring and summer. The 360 degree view and narration is well worth the $15 ticket price. Before you explore Boston's many neighborhoods by foot, make sure to enjoy this birds eye view.

“Beautiful view”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

Beautiful view of the city. I enjoyed the little device they give you to narrate the history of certain important places in the city. This place is inside the Prudential 50th floor, in 1st floor there is a beautiful small Chapel.

“Great for kids”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

Our 4 year old loved it. Everyone should see a city from above at least once. Other cities have taller buildings - this one is only the 50th floor. But definitely fun for the kiddos.
