NEW York City’s iconic Empire State Building has debuted the second phase of its top-to-bottom reimagined Observatory Experience, opening to the public last month. The US$165 million project sees the museum as the only in NYC that almost never sleeps, remaining open seven days a week from 8am to 2am.
The 3,000m2 galleries invite guests on a journey from the building’s construction to its current place in pop culture.
One of the exhibit’s highlights is the construction display, where visitors can experience the sights and sounds of the building of the icon.
The museum also features a King Kong display with the famous ape’s fingers bursting through the walls of a 1930s office.
