Where to Find All Earth Landmarks in Starfield

It's time to head home.

With so many planets, moons, and stars to discover in Starfield, it’s good to come back to something familiar like the landmarks on Earth. Sure, humanity vacated Earth a long time ago and it’s mostly sand, but some interesting monuments are still there for you to rediscover. If you’re heading to Sol for some sightseeing, here’s where you can find all of Starfield’s landmarks on Earth.

Where to Locate All Earth Landmarks in Starfield

Abeno Harukas, Osaka Landmark

Ready to become an outlaw? Well, you better because the Osaka landmark isn’t available unless you read the Diary of Kyosuke Nagata. And the only place you’ll find that is on The Key after you join the Crimson Fleet.

When you’re on The Key, head to the command center. If you’re facing Delgado, turn around and you’ll see two sets of stairs leading to a room above. That’s Delgado’s room, and on his nightstand is the Diary of Kyosuke Nagata 

Burj Khalifa, Dubai Landmark

Unlocking the Osaka landmark is certainly one of the more involved scavenger hunts. You’ll need to read Race to the Heavens, which is only found on the Siren of the Stars. It’s a ship you’ll encounter during the Breaking the Bank side quest, which in and of itself is a Crimson Fleet faction quest.

The Siren of the Stars is orbiting Aranea IV, a planet in the Aranea star system. You won’t immediately recognize it on the star map because it’s right next to another star. Select the Olympus system, and then Aranea will pop up as an option. On the ship, head into Larry Dumbrosky’s room to find Race to the Heavens.

Gateway Arch, Missouri Landmark

If you’ve ever seen the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, you can pay another visit to the monument in Starfield. You can unlock this location after you’ve read The Price of Destiny. There’s just one problem: You need the Theft skill.

This is because the only one who has a copy is Benjamin Bayu, the owner of the Astral Lounge, and it’s locked in his penthouse. You’ll need Bayu’s Penthouse Key to get inside, which he has stored in his pocket.

At the Astral Lounge, there’s a VIP lounge elevator. Benjamin Bayu is in Booth 4. Once you have Bayu’s Penthouse Key, exit the Astral Lounge and head immediately left to find the elevator to Benjamin’s penthouse. The Price of Destiny is on the desk in his office on the top floor.

International Commerce Center, Hong Kong Landmark

Now for something a little easier: how to find the Hong Kong landmark, the International Commerce Center. You don’t need anything other than a ship that can grav jump to the Sol system.

Fly over to Titan, a moon of Saturn’s, to New Homestead. After landing, head into the facility and run straight ahead to find a flight of steps. This takes you directly into New Homestead’s museum.

While inside, go down the next flight of steps, then make an immediate 180 turn to face the steps. On your left is a shelf with a copy of Maurice Lyon’s Journal. Read it to unlock the Hong Kong landmark in Starfield.

Shanghai Tower, China’s Landmark

The Shanghai Tower landmark can be unlocked at the same time you’re following the First Contact side quest. First Contact involves investigating a ship orbiting Porrima II, a planet in the Porrima system.

When aboard the ship, use the signs to make a beeline for the mess hall. There’s an elevator that takes you directly to the ship’s classroom. Behind the teacher, on the table, is the book Essentials of Modern Macroeconomics. Reading it will give you a waypoint for the Shanghai Tower Earth landmark.

The Shard, London Landmark

Up next is the Shard, a famous skyscraper in London. Of course, time has not been good to it in Starfield, and most of its 72-story glory has been buried. You’ll see the tip of the building sticking straight out.

To unlock the Shard landmark as a landing site, you need to read Oliver Twist. You can find the book pretty frequently out on your travels. Alternatively, you can purchase a copy at Sinclair’s Books in Akila City, on the planet Akila in the Cheyenne System.

The Pyramids, Cairo Landmark

While you’re at Sinclair’s Books, you might as well purchase a copy of ‘The Ancient Civilization of Egypt’ too. Reading it will unlock another landmark on Earth: the Pyramids. Yes, they’re still visible, but most of it is also buried.

Empire State Building, New York Landmark

Unlocking the Empire State Building landmark is a tad tricky. A landing site will appear after you’ve read a copy of ‘Our Lost Heritage.’ There’s just one problem: it’s in the office of the President of the United Colonies.

Getting to the President’s office is the easy part — just go into MAST HQ in New Atlantis and use the elevator. Turn right after you exit to find the room. Stealing it is tricky. If Abello is standing in front of the desk, crouch to steal ‘Our Lost Heritage’ from the desk.

US Bank Tower, California Landmark

Before we explain how to unlock the LA landmark, we highly suggest storing any valuable items you’ve stolen. If it has that red mark on it, then it’s likely to be taken while attempting to get the book you need.

The Los Angeles landmark is unlocked after you’ve read the Hope Family Tree book. That’s on Palvo, a planet in the Valo system. When you land in Hopetown, enter HopeTech ascend the stairs inside to find Ron Hope’s office. The Hope Family Tree book is on his desk, which you’ll have to steal.

If you’re lucky, Ron will just take the book back, along with any other stolen goods you have. If not, you’ll spend some time in jail, in addition to a very small bounty.

While the following landmarks aren’t technically on Earth, they’re still really fun easter eggs to uncover. They all come with their own snowglobes to collect, such as the Apollo landing, the Opportunity Rover, and one of NASA’s launch sites.

Apollo Landing Site Landmark

You might come across the Apollo Landing Site early if you’ve been snooping around the other rooms at the Lodge. Though this one is on Earth’s moon, Luna, it’s still part of the family.

To find the Apollo Landing Site landmark, you’ll need to pick up a copy of Sir Livingstone’s Second Journal. Luckily, Mateo has a copy at The Lodge in his room on the dresser. Give it a read and the landmark will appear as a landing site on the moon. There’s also the Apollo snow globe to collect!

NASA Launch Tower, Florida Landmark

While technically not a landmark in Starfield, the NASA Launch Tower is still a really awesome feature to look for. In fact, you’ll unlock this area as a landing site during the main story, specifically the ‘Unearthed’ mission. Don’t forget to nab the NASA snow globe while you’re there.

Opportunity Rover, Mars

Before you leave the NASA Launch Tower, be sure to stop by NASA’s museum. It has a bunch of exhibits still up, one of which showcases the MER Program. A replica of the Mars rover, Opportunity is on display.

Next to the replica is a plaque, and reading it will give you another Earth-related landmark: the location of the actual Opportunity.

That’s the last of Earth’s landmarks in Starfield, folks. Given Earth’s unfortunate ending, it’s no surprise most of its features are covered, but it’s still cool to see. For more interesting content, you’ll find links to guides and questions down below!
