City Hall Exterior Tour
M. Fischetti for Visit Philadelphia

City Hall Exterior Only Tour

Perhaps the nation's largest and most elaborate seat of municipal government, Philadelphia's City Hall is the highest masonry load-bearing structure in the world, and the finest example of the French Second Empire architecture in America.

City Hall's structure is adorned with the most comprehensive sculptural decoration of any American building, featuring more than 250 sculptures designed by Alexander Milne Calder, including the statue of William Penn that stands atop the structure’s tower.  

A National Historic Landmark, City Hall continues to inspire citizens and visitors alike, who can learn more about the building's art, architecture, and history on a guided walking tour around the building's perimeter.
