The views of DC from this observation deck are phenomenal! As an Arlington resident, I got in free, but the view is worth paying for. There is a nice little snack bar with wine and beer if you want to linger. It was not crowded...More

Visited on a Saturday afternoon, it was not crowded at all, no wait for the dedicated elevator to the top. The observation floor provides a 360 degree view of Washington, DC and Northern VA. There is also a small outdoor deck but it faces south...More

A mixed review b/c of the cost. The deck is new, very clean/well maintained, and has 14 pillars with interactive information related to the sites (but one was not working when I was there.) And as others have noted the views of DC and Virginia...More

Absolutely fabulous 360 views from way up high, along with interesting interactive historical displays. A bit pricey, but on a par with similar things in other cities. Extremely friendly and helpful staff - usual these days.

I live in Arlington, so as a county resident, got in for free with my wife. I say for free, this is worth it for sure. However, all others will have to pay over $20 for admission. With the Washington Monument and Old Post Office...More
