Owner description: Located at the exact geographical center of Philadelphia, City Hall is perhaps the nation’s largest and most elaborate seat of municipal government, topped by the famous statue of William Penn. Located in the building's East Portal in Room 121, the City Hall Visitor Center provides the opportunity for visitors to experience this architectural treasure. Tickets for interior and tower tours are available here, as well as tickets to other city attractions, and visitor essentials including maps, brochures, souvenirs and trip itineraries.

On my walk about Philly, this was a nice place to visit. Even visited a gallery of young artists here that was inspiring. Great architecture. Loved it.

If you can only do 2 things in Philly, this should be one and independence national historical park. Go to the observation deck for a great view of the city. Be sure to reserve your time slot ahead, they only allow 4 people at a time.

The history pours out from all over this landmark. If your visiting Philadelphia you must stop. The outside alone is worth the stop.

We recently visited City Hall and George was our guide. He was extremely knowledgeable and made sure we didn't miss a thing. The trip to the observatory tower (included in tour) was the highlight. A panoramic view of the city is not to be missed.

Older historic building, but great to see government in operation in such a unique place. Loved the chambers where our panel discussion was held, particularly the additional balcony seating.
