See Boston like you've never seen it, at the Skywalk observatory. New England's tallest observatory and Boston's ONLY sky-high vantage point, the Skywalk is located on the 50th floor of the Prudential Building. Visitors at both locations are embraced by panoramic views of Greater Boston and beyond. On a clear day, visibility is more than 80 miles. The Skywalk Observatory offers breathtaking 360° views of Boston, over 700 feet in the air. Exhibits and features at the Skywalk include the Dreams of Freedom Immigration Museum, an Acoutiguide Audio Tour of the city and "Wings Over Boston" the Skywalk's spectacular aerial video tour of Boston and Cambridge. Narrated by noted actor Peter Strauss and shown in the Skywalk's state-of-the-art video theater, "Wings Over Boston" takes viewers on a breathtaking ride high above the city to get a sky-high view of The Back Bay, Beacon Hill, The State House, Boston Common, The Public Garden, The North End, Fenway Park, Faneuil Hall, Harvard University, MIT and The John F. Kennedy Memorial Library, to name just a few.
The Skywalk Observatory is ideal for groups of all ages. It is both entertaining and educational. Whether you come in the winter to see the snow covered roof tops, in the fall to get a beautiful view of the foliage all along Boston’s Emerald Necklace or in the summer when the sun shines on the Atlantic, the Skywalk is an ideal way to tour Boston any time of year.
