5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2013

I work across the street from City Hall and it still takes my breath away every time I stop to gaze at it. Beautiful, ornate building.

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2013

City Hall is really pretty to tour. All of the detailed architecture and ornate decorative features are lovely. It is especially pretty at night when it is so beautifully lit against the Avenue of the Arts.

“Great architecture”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2012

Wish it was open on weekend. We wanted to go up in the tower to stand at the foot of Willi Penn but it was closed.

“Decent time killer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2012

The historian in there was very informative and explained the history of Old City Hall well. However, there is really not much to see so your time there is quick.
