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

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.

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
