Eastern State Penitentiary
Explore America's most historic prison! Eastern State Penitentiary was the world’s first penitentiary: a prison designed to inspire penitence, or true regret, in the hearts of prisoners. Its vaulted, sky-lit cells held many of America's most notorious criminals, including “Scarface” Al Capone and "Slick Willie" Sutton. The prison stands today in ruin, a haunting world of crumbling cellblocks and empty guard towers.

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.
Get inspired. #citypass
