Visit the Skywalk Observatory, Boston's only sky-high vantage point for sweeping 360 degree views of Greater Boston and beyond. On a clear day, you can see up to 100 miles away.

Let your eyes and ears do the walking as you experience the exclusive state-of-the-art Antenna Audio Tour detailing the city's many points of historic and cultural interest.

In view are Boston's Hancock Tower, Fenway Park, the Boston Common and Public Garden, the Esplanade and Hatch Shell, Faneuil Hall Marketplace, Harvard University, and countless other landmarks.

At the end of your tour of the Skywalk Observatory, make sure to stop in to the state-of-the-art movie theater, which continually runs two short films: “Wings Over Boston,” an up-close feel of the entire city, and “Dreams of Freedom,” a multimedia journey through time.

You can purchase tickets at the Prudential Center Skywalk Observatory Boston Kiosk located in Prudential Arcade. The kiosk is open from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., 7 days a week.

In the event the kiosk is closed, you may also purchase tickets at the Skywalk entrance located on the 50th floor of the Prudential Tower in Boston.

The Skywalk does close for private functions. Please call ahead to confirm that they will be open on the day you arrive.
