City Hall Interior Tour

Perhaps the nation's largest and most elaborate seat of municipal government, Philadelphia's City Hall is open for citizens and visitors alike to explore through guided tours.

The City Hall Interior Tour explores the history, art, and architecture of the world's highest masonry load-bearing structure, which consists of 88 million bricks!

Learn more interesting facts and view the building's grandest rooms (like the above-pictured City Council Caucus Room) on this guided tour, which lasts approximately 1.5 - 2 hours. The City Hall Interior Tour is available Monday - Friday, at 12:30 p.m.

Weather-permitting, the City Hall Interior Tour also includes a City Hall Tower Tour, on Monday - Friday.
