Great deal and great places to see!CityPASS is a very convenient cost effective way to see some of the great sites of the great city of Philadelphia!!
This is the way to go!We are new to the Philadelphia area and we were anxious to get out and explore some of the sites with our three kids. We came across the CityPASS and decided to take our last two weeks of summer and dedicate it to exploring. This was truly the way to do it! We used every pass and got our money's worth.
Great PurchaseI bought the city pass during my recent trip to Philly and it made getting into several sights that required timed tickets so easy. It was definitely a great purchase and well worth the price!
Amazing ExperienceI found out about the CityPASS on my 1st day in Philly and I’m so glad I did because I did not have anything planned. It was inexpensive and perfect. Loved everything about it. I was able to visit 3 attractions without any hassle. I can’t wait to use this again when I travel with my kids.
Money saver and a good guidance on fun placesI view CityPASS as a good source to find out fun places at destination city. Philadelphia CityPASS definitely helped me with that.
Philadelphia CityPASS is rated out of 5 by 868.
Rated 5 out of 5 by PhillyisFun from Easy to use! I’m really glad I bought the CityPass. We checked prices since we were going off season and some attractions were less expensive than peak times, but with the option of choosing how many attractions you want on the pass, it’s easy to make it work for you. And adding it to my Apple wallet was so simple too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wellpleased from Well worth it, Purchased a CityPASS to visit sites we had identified before arrival. The purchase online was easy. The sites readily accepted the pass by scanning our phone. We saved enough to make the visit to our third site virtually free. If you are looking to visit multiple sites, I recommend purchasing a CityPASS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TNT fam from Excellent Value The City Pass was great for our family. We bought a pass for three attractions...the Franklin Institute, The Big Bus Tour, and the Penitentiary. A solid two days of fun. I'd suggest doing the Big Bus Tour first to get a good overview of the city. The Bus and the Franklin Institute were the kids favorites. The Penitentiary was the favorite for the adults. The Big Bus tour left us wanting to explore more and see things we hadn't planned to see. A great way to see Philly is with the City Pass.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TerriersRule! from Solid Way to See the City Being valid for 9 days was a big selling point. Since I had time before and after a conference I did not have to worry about it expiring. The entrance experience at the places I chose to visit was seamless. Highly recommend using CityPass to visit the Museum of the American Revolution -- a great new museum in Philly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Karen from FANTASTIC My family of 4 bought the pass for 4 attractions & loved it. So simple with no lines to buy tickets. We went to the Zoo, observation deck, Eastern State Penetentery & the Aquarium. Highly recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by phillyphilly1 from Great Deal-Worth the Money We purchased the 3 ticket deal. After going to the Franklin Institute and Battleship New Jersey the pass had paid for itself making the last trip we took effectively free. The only thing I would add is that the Franklin Institute special exhibit is not included with the City Pass and I wish that had been more clear from the website before.
