The Empire State Building is such a New York icon that a visit is on most tourist's agendas. But now there is a new reason to visit the Empire State Building as this icon has just unveiled a brand new Second Floor Observatory Experience.

This is the most recent phase of its top-to-bottom re-imagined Observatory Experience. The $165 million project presents the only museum in New York City that is open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 2 a.m. So while other museums are closed, you can experience this icon at night.



Located on the second floor of the international icon, the 10,000 sq. ft galleries take guests on a journey from the building's construction to its current place in pop culture.



The nine sections of the exhibit, have captions in multiple languages and include:The 1920s. Black-and-white panoramic images depicting NYC streets of the day. The Construction Phase: Inspired by Lewis Hine's photography. There are animated videos of construction workers at the site.Opening Day: Experience the NYC streets in the 1930s at the time the building opened.Otis Elevators: You get to see the building's original elevators, how they were operated, and the exhibit includes a simulator of the elevator shaft.King Kong: Information and an immersive video makes it seem like he is hanging on to the building just outside!World's Most Famous Building: We mostly know this inconic building through movies. There are over 70 screens displaying movies, comic books, TV shows, and videos that showcase the Empire State Building.Celebrity: Photos of all the celebrities who have visited the observatory. Even Queen Elizabeth managed that elevator.

Tourists will love the new immersive and interactive exhibits. Not to mention the awe-inspiring view of New York's skyline from the 86th Floor Observatory.
