“Much better than Willis Tower”
Reviewed 22 February 2012

Of the two towers this one has better all round views and the guide you get with it is really informative. They have really thought about the whole experience and it isn't just about being high up. You get to see everything from the observation deck and if I only had to choose one tower to go up I would choose this one.

“Very good.”
Reviewed 22 February 2012

The Hancock Observatory is great. amazing views during the day. A full 360 degree view of the Chicago skyline,Lake Michigan, and miles upon miles to the west. After you are done in the observatory, go up a floor for dinner and drinks..

“Great views - worth it”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

The line was a bit longer and getting up took a while. Once you get to the top, there are audio tours, a cafe, and a bar/restuarant on a lower floor. Don't miss the DIY kiosk on the side to avoid the line!

“Night View...must try”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

I came at the top at night. It was a great view. They are open until 11 nightly. They have a bar and a small skating rink at the top. There were not a lot of people up there which made it nice. It had great views of the city. I highly recommend this view at night.
