Interesting history and at $5 a person probably one of the best values in Baltimore. Not to be missed.

This was such an enjoyable and informative tour - and so historical. Browsing the artist's studios was great. Bought a beautiful photograph from artist Dave Ehlers - I highly recommend visiting his studio. There is a $5 fee for the tour (goes towards the clock renovation) - but if you just want to enjoy the artwork - there is no... More

Growing up in Baltimore the Bromo Tower was always an icon to us particularly as children. We were told it was a copy of Big Ben in London and when I took piano lessons as a child I used to play the rhyme of the chimes of Big Ben on the piano. So I was well impressed to see the... More

I agree with previous reviews. The Saturday open house is a great concept and the musician playing this Saturday for the Musings at the Bromo event was quite good. The space is a little crowded but the atmosphere was very casual and approachable. The tour of the clock tower was well worth the time and $5. The guide was enthusiastic,... More

Really cool place to go, open for tours on Saturdays, along with art galleries. Very cool history and clock tower.

The Clock tower is often open on Saturdays during the summer and tours are given hourly. It was fun to go to the top, see the clock workings, and here the history of this quirky building. The building is full of artists studios now and several are open to browse and to talk to the local artists - but check... More

You can't just drop by; the Tower opens to the public only occasionally. Now the home for a number of artists, when they have an open house, don't miss it. Elevator to the top floor, check out the view, and then walk down the stairs, stopping at the art studios on the way. Great fun and excellent art.

Not too far from the major attractions in the downtown area is the Bromo-Seltzer tower, which once was topped by a huge mock up a bottle of the famous elixer. The original building surrounding the tower is long gone, but the tower is well worth a visit. The original elevator with the operators seat is still there, which is very... More

The tower itself is a treat if you're into 20th century architecture. The studios aren't open often, but when they are, you can see a wide range of interesting art and meet the artists.

It was fun to take the free tour of the building and go up into the clock tower. The tour guide was great. He gave us a lot of cool background info on Bromo Seltzer, the building and even the city. A section of the glass was removed from the clock for the tour and you could look out into... More
