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, 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.
