We visited on a rainy weekend, so we passed on the tower tour, but I'm just glad we had the opportunity to walk around it. It's magnificent architecture. We walked around the grounds and passed through the walkways and it left us in awe. I...More

Great to visit. Lots of interesting sites very close by. Looks like it belongs in Vienna instead of Pennsylvania. Very beautiful building.

Pretty buildings near a pleasant lush green park. I walked the area but did not venture inside. Busy with tourists but enjoyable.

The facade of this building is exceptional and well lit at night. In the evening it stands out against the night sky.

Toured the building and was impressed with the size and beauty of it. We went up to the top, right below William Penn. It was raining so the views weren't as good as they could be, but still enjoyable. The building is stone and marble...More

Amazed by the history and how big this place is! When it was being built, people hated it using words like 'monstrosity'!! The architecture is a sight to behold (think Houses of Parliament on steroids and fitted with a 'muscle car' engine!) Go up to...More
