Did the Top of the World Observation Level tonight. Beautiful sights of Baltimore after dark. Loved the 9/11 memorial, all of the history, the sights, and great discussion with the young man working. Definitely should not miss this when you are in Baltimore.

Very impressed with the 9/11 memorial. We really enjoyed it. They did have some basic history of the city and the view of the city is pretty amazing.

It is beautifully done. Very emotional as every person who tragically died on 911 has their name etched in the glass as you overlook the city and harbor of Baltimore! Pictures of local victims and details surrounding that sad day abound as well. Highly recommend!! Beautiful View also!!

Took two little ones aged 3 and 5 and they loved it! They would have stayed up there all day if they could. It is very spacious and enclosed. The little gift shop up there also has a scavenger hunt for kids which is why they wanted to stay for so long. But the views are beautiful! We got a... More

I would recommend taking in this view if you're in the Baltimore area. The price is right and the views are spectacular.All ages can enjoy - need to see how far away different places where from that point.
