It was great to see the entire city from that view. I was there for about 1.5 hours it wasn't too crowded and I could spend as much time as I wanted. My only compliant is the parking situation. I paid over $30 for parking in the garage and that included the 360 validation of $5. I paid more for parking than the ticket.

It was the ideal way to buy. We avoid a long queue, the one at the ticket office. But, there is no way not to stay in the other queue, the ticket queue, which exists to enter the museum. After that queue, you still have to queue to get into the elevator and go up. There is only one elevator that goes up and one that goes down. As it is winter there are few people. I suggest going in the afternoon, around lunchtime. To try to avoid fog and clouds, good luck with the weather!

Definitely worth the money! And better than the Willis Tower! We paid almost €28/person for entry and the view was awesome! Especially between 4-5 p.m. you could see both the “golden hour” and the city in the dark. You had enough time to take photos (not like at the Willis Tower where you only have 60 seconds per person/group to shoot “the perfect picture”). Only the restaurant/bar upstairs was very expensive. But well, that was clear to us in advance
