We were lucky enough to get a guided tour of this building last weekend along with 4 other people. It is really beautiful inside, with many interesting facts about the artwork and 23 karat gold paint that is pretty much everywhere. We got to see three of the important judicial chambers (?) and hear about the history of the artwork (paintings) and the architecture. There are many original chandeliers hanging from each of these rooms' ceilings (which were just ugly to me) but range in weight from 2 to 4.5 tons each. That is the equivalent of either a hippo or an elephant hanging from the ceiling... pretty interesting stuff. This is one of my few "must do" tours if you ever get the chance. There is no cost for it but you have to pay to park, either on the street or in the nearby garage. The price is $10 for up to 2 hours. Well worth it if you ask me. The buildings and grounds here are beautiful and you can spend time outside on the metal benches, surrounded by flowers.

I did not have time to go inside (and from the signage, I was not certain I could get inside), but from the other TA reports, it appears that I will have to do this on a return trip. The outside is really big and grabs your attention. I was really drawn to the size and simple design of the structure when I saw it from my hotel room.

The Art Deco design is very clean and free of any decoration that you expect on a "normal" deco structure. Still, it looks good. I do enjoy the mix of so many different architectural styles in one very small area. It is good to see so many survived the "urban renewal process" of so many of our major cities. More city planners need to take note!

建築は、周りの歴史的なものに比して新しい1930年代だそうですが、今でも現役で使用されています。入国時の税関申告書でおなじみの組織が入っていました。

You'll need to let security know why you're there (just to take photos or experience the rotunda), but it's definitely worth the visit. The rotunda contains beautiful murals and metalwork that are terrific to experience. You'll need to present ID and ensure you don't take any photos of the security set-up, but they were very nice to let me walk around and read the exhibit about the history of the building. It looks like the Ghostbusters building, but it's not, FYI.

The building--mainly the lobby as that's all you really get to see--is impressive. The State Department Staff is friendly and helpful. If you get same day service you'll be asked to return at 3 pm. What they don't tell you is that you have to line up outside and be admitted to the lobby in small groups as instructed by self important, lazy, private security guards for an indifferent screening and a walk through the metal detectors. These clowns make dealing with the TSA agents at the airport seem like a true pleasure. They are especially slow and inefficient while acting like they are guarding the freaking white house!
When I told one of them that I'd never complain about TSA again he said, "TSA keeps stealing our best people"
Duh...guess so!

Construction started late in 1932, and opened on November 10, 1934, at a cost of more than $3.5 million—this in the height of the Great Depression. Four thousand workers were employed for two years. Distinguished by design quality and a decorative program, the U.S. Custom House is a fitting architectural monument to Philadelphia’s status as one of the nation’s largest ports. The immense rotunda depicted in the accompanying photos is not in the center of the building, but instead conceal loading docks that comprise much of the first floor space. No one was available to provide history or information if guided tours are available, but this magnificent Art Deco tribute to the great city of Philadelphia is an excellent sojourn when walking through the city’s Historic District.
