Located inside the iconic John Hancock Center, John Hancock Observatory is open every day from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. and, at 875 North Michigan Avenue, stands in the heart of the Magnificent Mile next to hundreds of shops, restaurants, attractions and entertainment venues.
Highlights include spectacular 360° views spanning 80 miles and four states and the city’s only open‐air Sky Walk, all accessed by the fastest elevators in the country.
A few months after unveiling extensive refurbishment plans, this winter John
Hancock Observatory has even more to celebrate, including a full schedule of holiday activities and the opening of the world’s highest Espression by Lavazza Café. Families can enjoy the Observatory’s updated spaces and magnificent views of Chicago’s skyline accompanied by a Discovery Audio multimedia tour
narrated by Lookingglass Theatre co-founder David Schwimmer. And for Illinois families looking for budget-friendly holiday activities, kids’ admission is free with every adult each weekend during the months of November and December.
Additionally, Kids' Zone just opened in November 2008, giving children a place to entertain themselves while at the Observatory.
