Where are we going today?

Are you ready to feel like a bird, high up in the sky looking down at everyone below?

If you are, then just visit the Skywalk Observatory, Boston's only sky-high vantage point for sweeping 360 degree views of Greater Boston and beyond!

Here, you can let your eyes and ears do the walking as the family experiences the exclusive state-of-the-art Antenna Audio Tour that details the city's many points of historic and cultural interest. It's a great learning experience for kids!

Not only do children of all ages find the view from 700 ft. up to be truly exhilarating, but teachers become equally excited by our enriching and interactive exhibits showcasing Boston’s cultural history.

Whilst at the Skywalk Observatory, you can also visit the Dreams of Freedom Museum, where you can see an exhibit that celebrates the role that immigration has played shaping this amazing city, as well as check out the multimedia movie theater where you can see two films that explain the history!

Great fun for kids - just make sure you take your camera!
