The best is the clock room where you can see and learn how the clock works, you even get a lessen on the... More

Have lived in Baltimore for over 30 years, and see this impressive clock tower every time I go into the city, never knew you could go inside, and tour. Always thought it was just a historic landmark in this old city of Baltimore. Will definitely check out, very walkable from famous Inner Harbor.

This was a short visit - the tour lasted about an hour, with first half dedicated to the history of the tour and its founder, Captain Emerson, and the second half to actually touring the clock tour. Both sections were quite interesting! One tip though: when the tourguide says he can take you to the 15th floor on a manual... More

I am amazed at how many people look at this fantastic tower but have never been inside of it. To walk up the "ladder" to reach the floor that houses 4 giant clock faces and all of it's components is simply breathtaking! To learn about the history of the Bromo Seltzer tower and the man behind it is a piece... More

Was driving around Baltimore and saw the tower Didn't have time to go in as was catching a flight Looks great from outside Unique looking Baltimore is an interesting looking place It has a lot of character I'd say although also looks edgy

I went over there to do the tour, but when I arrived the tour was only available on fridays and saturdays. I still enjoyed the view of the tower from the outside, but the tour would probably have done the visit more exciting.

We only did the art tour. The very kind greeter told us it was best to take the elevator to the top floor and work our way down. I elevator has a sign inside that says "Max capacity 4 adults". If you have elevator anxiety, be prepared for this one to set it off. I closed my eyes and took... More

Interesting part of Baltimore history. The tour lasts about 45 minutes and takes you all the way into the clock tower where you can see the inner workings of this historic Baltimore landmark.
