I last went up into this tower about 15 years ago. You rode up; you looked around; you rode down. I hadn't realized that the Baltimore had turned the tower into a memorial for those that died on 9/11. It is moving and informative - even if you've been to NYC to the Memorial site there. There is a piece... More

A great way to see the entire area. This has a 360 degree view with floor to ceiling windows. In the heat it's a nice stop to sit.view the city and gt cooled off.

This may be the best buy in Baltimore. For only $6 you get an express elevator ride to the 27th floor and a 360 degree view of Baltimore. There are panorama pictures describing what you are seeing in front of each window. There is no time limit. I would recommend you go up and do this before anything else. You... More

The view from the 27th level was awesome. You can see 360 degrees of Baltimore from there. The price is moderate unlike other cities.

For a resident of Baltimore City it was WONDERFUL to see it from this view. The 360 degree view of the city makes everything look so pretty and vast. They offered a groupon; 2 for 1 admission which was great, however it is pretty affordable without it.

For a small price you can see practically all of Baltimore. The view goes all the way around and you will find yourself taking a ton of pictures! Go and see it!

Going Up... It's one of those things you want to do and yes it is cool to do, would I do it again? Probably if a little one begged me:-) It is fun and everyone should try it, not another place you can get a 360 degree view. Also seemed very ADA friendly. Because it's on top of the World... More
