Did you know that Philadelphia’s City Hall is the largest and the tallest City Hall in the United States? And that there are over 250 marble status ornamenting the exterior of the building?

To learn more trivia facts and discover one of the City’s most iconic buildings, join us on April 17th as we visit Philadelphia’s City Hall and celebrate, one day early, the International Day of Monuments and Sites.

Each year on April 18, the International Council On Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS) brings attention to the global need to preserve monuments and sites and to celebrate the diversity of the world’s cultural heritage. Protecting and preserving this valuable asset demands the collective efforts of the international community. That’s why Global Philadelphia and the City of Philadelphia have been committed over the last few months to get a World Heritage City designation for the city of Philadelphia and its inevaluable legacy.  

Don’t miss this great opportunity to discover part of Philadelphia’s unique heritage and to enjoy breathtaking views of the city as you ride up to the observation deck, located 500 feet above the ground, just underneath the statue of William Penn.

This event is $8.50 (RSVP and pay here)
