Full description
Be sure not to miss a thing on your trip to Philadelphia with this combined two-day hop-on hop-off city bus pass and entry to the legendary Eastern State Penitentiary. Enjoy the freedom to jump on and off the tour bus at your leisure, as you travel around the city and visit over 20 of its most iconic landmarks.

The pass also includes a ticket to the Eastern State Penitentiary, famed for being one of the most haunted places in the United States, and the film location of many movies including 12 Monkeys. The penitentiary is an abandoned prison that has a public museum and historical site since 1994, offering a truly unique experience to wander through the former halls, cells and yards.

The building’s history spans nearly 200 years, and it was originally erected as a place for reform rather than punishment. Since then, the prison has endured a turbulent history, with breakouts and riots, and notorious inmates such as Al Capone and Willie Sutton. During your visit, dive deep into the prison’s history, engage in hands-on interactive experiences, and come across some fantastic photo opportunities.
