THE SKYWALK OBSERVATORY AUDIO TOUR
All visitors to the Skywalk Observatory are invited to take a personalized tour of the city with our Acoustiguide audio tour handsets, which offer two versions of the tour: one for children and one for adults. Adult tour available in English, Spanish, French, German, Japanese and Mandarin. Child tour available in English.
THE DREAMS OF FREEDOM MUSEUM
The exhibit celebrates the important role that immigration has played in shaping this unique city. Boston is one of the world’s most culturally diverse cities, with one out of every three residents born abroad, and a population that speaks more than 140 different languages.
MULTIMEDIA MOVIE THEATER
Conclude your tour of the Skywalk Observatory by enjoying our state-of-the-art movie theater, which continually runs two short films: “Wings Over Boston,” an up-close feel of the entire city, and “Dreams of Freedom,” a multimedia journey through time.
TEACHERS & STUDENTS
AN EXCEPTIONAL SPOT FOR A CLASS FIELD TRIP
Not only do children of all ages find the view from 700 feet in the air to be truly exhilarating, but teachers become equally excited by the vast array of enriching and interactive exhibits that showcase Boston’s cultural history. The Skywalk Observatory is proud of Boston’s world-wide reputation as an international center of education, and we are excited to work with educators and provide materials that will help make their field trip as engaging and informative as possible. The Dreams of Freedom Museum exhibits were designed to meet Massachusetts curriculum standards and are age appropriate for elementary, middle, and high school students.
