Inaugurated in 1931, the Empire State Building was for a long time the tallest building in the world. It’s a well-known icon in popular culture, having appeared in several films, books, and series. The building is a must-see attraction for all lovers of American culture.
Its art deco-style lobby will be the first stop of your visit. From there, you will be able to take in several exhibitions, starting with one showcasing the construction of the tower almost 90 years ago. Another exhibition focuses on the skyscraper's recent renovation, in part aimed at reducing the tower's environmental footprint. It’s an opportunity for visitors to discover the techniques that have reduced the building's total energy consumption by 38%. These are two exhibitions that will interest both young and old, with simple and fun explanations.
Then climb to the 86th floor of the tower, to enjoy an exceptional panoramic view of the city of New York. You can also download the free "Empire State Building Guide” app, with valuable information about the building. Take advantage of the free Wi-Fi in the lobby to download it. The guide is available in eight different languages.
