Smith Tower Observatory Tickets

On your way to the top of the tower, explore some of the stories, figures, and moments that have made Smith Tower a cultural icon for more than one hundred years in our historical exhibits. Then, take a ride on the historic Otis elevators to the 35th floor where you'll be welcomed by stunning views and an exhilarating opportunity to take in 360-degrees of Seattle and Puget Sound from the open-air observation deck. Enjoy classic cocktails and a locally inspired menu of shareable plates from The Observatory's speak-easy-inspired bar.

Access is based on availability upon arrival. Reservations are unavailable. During peak times, wait times range from 15 minutes - 1.5 hours.
