View All Info


An architectural treasure inside and out, City Hall is the largest municipal building in the United States, with over 14.5 acres of floor space.

Topped with an iconic statue of Philadelphia founder William Penn, the 548-foot tower is the tallest masonry structure in the world without a steel frame, and it was the tallest building in Philadelphia until 1987.

The public rooms are among the most lavish in the city; the City Council Chamber, the Mayor’s Reception Room, Conversation Hall and the Supreme Court Room are some of the most ornate.

As of July 2021, guided tours of the exterior of the building are available, with tours of the interior and observation deck on pause due to COVID-19.
