Opening hours
08:00 - 21:00 & 21:00 - 01:15 (two entries on the same day possible)
  • Visit the Empire State Building twice in one day and enjoy both daytime and nighttime views!
  • See the sights from the Empire State Building Observatory and enjoy unforgettable views
  • Visit the newly renovated Art Deco lobby and murals, the factual Dare to Dream exhibition, and the Sustainability exhibition
  • Visiting on July 14 or 15? See a dynamic light show for the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Watch the lights rotate through the colors of the 32 participating countries!

The Big Apple is always buzzing, but if you can't decide between day or night views from the famous Empire State Building, you can visit twice in one day with this special ticket. Skip the lines at the ticket counter and zoom right up to the observatory in sunlight - and then by moonlight!

Can't decide if day or night views would be best? No problem! This ticket gets you two visits to the Empire State Building in one day.

The Empire State Building was completed on April 11, 1931 and remains the 5th tallest skyscraper in America. It's survived plane crashes and giant apes (sorta) so if there's one thing you should check off your NYC to-see list, it's this!

After a short security check, climb this Art Deco triumph and marvel at Manhattan from the top of the Empire State Building Observatory.

You'll also get to see the newly renovated Art Deco lobby and its stunning murals, the factual Dare to Dream exhibition, and the Sustainability exhibition. Just watch out for King Kong - you never know when he'll be back.


Want to visit the 102nd floor Observatory for 360° open-air views of NY? Opt to upgrade your experience ($20) at the Observatory ticket office (2nd floor) or at the 86th floor kiosk.

And for your own personal tour guide from the ground floor right up to the top, the Official Empire State Building Guide app is a must-have. Download it for free from the App Store and Google play.

Hungry up high? Opt for a pre-fixed dinner package at the State Grill and Bar, which also serves local craft beers and cocktails. Starbucks, Chipotle, Sushi-teria, and the budget- minded Heartland Brewery are also close by.

Insider tip

New York and Boston have always been rival cities. Look closely at the lobby mural to find where Massachusetts was intentionally spelled incorrectly.

If you’ve never done this and you’d like to, then this is a way to do that:) is it worth it? Pretty subjective. Crowded and relatively expensive, but the experience was worthwhile with my family and youngest son that had never visited NYC before. Keep your expectations low and enjoy the view.

Teníamos entrada doble, diurna y nocturna. El día reservado había tal ventisca que apenas se distinguían los edificios y era imposible salir al exterior. Solicitamos el cambio de la visita nocturna y no tuvimos problemas, la hicimos unos días después.
