As you wind through the ground levels of the Willis Tower, you will be surrounded by museum-quality exhibits highlighting the iconic tower. Learn about Chicago's rich history and culture through these informative visuals.

Upon reaching the 103rd floor, step out onto the Skydeck, which offers views spanning over 50 miles and across 4 states. Then summon your courage to step out onto The Ledge, a glass balcony that hangs over the edge, for vertigo-inducing views 1,353 feet (about 412 meters) straight down to the city below!

What people are saying about Willis Tower Skydeck

Overall rating

4.3
(2,597 reviews)

I chosen 5 best attractions for me: Aquarium (with great show of Dolphins, funny penguins and sharks), Skydeck Chicago ( with great-full view of Chicago - I have to re-booked it due to bad weather). Next I was in three museums : Art Intitute Museum of Science and Industries and Field Museum. Two first was so excited. Especially Art institute where was temporary Picasso drawings exhibition. I think it was great spending time with save money in Chicago. At the end I advise to install City Pass apps for everyone for easy reservations every attractions.

It is worth visiting, I have been now in March, on a Tuesday at 9 in the morning, without queues and with the advantage of giving us time at The Ledge, without stress. (almost half an hour) nothing like the minute when there is more crowd. The photo they take is worth approximately 15 dollars.

Anyone who visits Chicago must definitely have been up there at least once. We were very lucky with the weather and therefore had the perfect view.

It was fantastic, we loved the experience. The staff was very nice and the views were incredible! It was very very cool being on the ledge!

Liked all the Chicago exhibits prior to going up!! Learned a lot!!
