Visitors’ Center

Our new second floor Visitors’ Center is a spacious, fully air-conditioned venue designed for visitors to orient themselves, clear security, buy tickets (or print if you buy tickets online). Immediately after the ticket office, you pick up your multi-media handheld device and proceed to our  Sustainability Exhibit, where visitors can learn about the building’s groundbreaking, energy-saving retrofit.

Take the Tour!

The virtual tour walks you through the whole experience, from the newly renovated art-deco lobby through the sustainability and historical exhibits, up to our observatories.

See for yourself what makes the Empire State Building Experience a must-see on your next NYC visit.
