Coit Tower, San Francisco

Coit Tower is a 64 metre (210 foot) tower on Telegraph Hill in San Francisco.


Coit Tower was paid for with a bequest from socialite and philanthropist Lillie Hitchcock Coit who died in 1929. The art deco concrete column tower was completed in 1933.

The interior features 27 murals painted in American Social Realism style by 26 artists.

It is free to enter the ground floor where many of the murals are located, but there are charges to take the elevator to the observation deck, which provides 360 degree views of San Francisco.

The tower is open April – October from 10 am to 6pm, and 10 am to 5 pm November to March. Last ticket is sold 30 minutes before closure.

Coit Tower is located at 1 Telegraph Hill Boulevard in Pioneer Park.
