Penobscot Narrows Observatory

Discover the breathtaking views from the tallest public bridge observatory in the world; taller than the Statue of Liberty, the 360-degree view from the Penobscot Narrows Observatory offers a panoramic look across Maine’s western mountains and lakes, and into Penobscot Bay. A quick, minute-long elevator ride brings you up 420 feet to take in the sights. See the autumn foliage light up the land or marvel at the mountains and the sea landscape.

The observatory is located on the cable-stayed Penobscot Narrows Bridge, a marvelous feat of engineering in itself. The bridge crosses the Penobscot River connecting Verona Island to Prospect and has become an iconic landmark in Maine.

Tickets for the ride to the top of the observatory can be purchased as you enter neighboring Fort Knox, Maine's largest historic fort.
