When you get to the Observation level, you forget all your troubles however short. The price is cheap for a city, the view is just breath taking :-) When you get up there, Baltimore just shines; you can see the old and new buildings that create this view. If you like old and new architecture you appreciate this view. Old... More

Loved this! Price was right, $6/adult. We were looking for something quick and "touristy" to do before the Orioles game and decided to give it a try. The 27th floor observation deck is amazing! There's a very nice tribute to the victims of 9/11. The panoramic views are simply breathtaking. Also has some fun trivia about how far we are... More

This was a perfect experience for our families. We had 5 adults and 3 12 yo's that went into this museum/deck. Everyone was very humbled by the 9/11 information and tributes. It made for great conversation and a better understanding for our children that were not born or old enough yet to see more of what went on on that... More

The Baltimore World Trade Center's Observation Level will be your favorite spot in Baltimore once you visit it and experience the views. The exhibit honoring 9-11 is well done and just another added attraction to this easily assessable stop on a visit to the Baltimore's Inner Harbor.

On a Sunny, Clear, day, this 360* view is Beautiful. The kids, 10,13,16, got restless after about 20 minutes, but the Adults would have been content for awhile longer. You can basically see a lot of what Baltimore has to offer. Small binoculars would be nice. The $0.25 "viewers" provided not in the best of shape.

Great views of the city and the harbor, but not much else up there. We took it the stop as an "AC" break just to get out of the heat for a few minutes, since we had been doing a lot of walking. They do have a memorial for the Maryland 9/11 victims up there and some info on 9/11... More

It costs $6 to go to the 27th floor to see the views around Baltimore. Not too expensive, compared to some viewing platforms I've been to around the world. They have a new display honouring the 9/11 disaster and frankly it's a bit cheesy. The views over the harbour are magnificent and the information boards explaining what you are looking... More

We were in Baltimore with a friend that's never been to Baltimore City, we noticed a sign for the observatory. Not only was it a great price it was perfect viewing. It was also surreal seeing the names of the 9/11 victims etched into the windows. This should be a must do when in Baltimore.

What a nice suprise. We found this hidden gem by coincidence when walking down the inner harbor and we have been somehow sceptical, because the entrance was JUST 6 bucks!!! The view on Inner Harbor and Downtown Baltimore. Exhibition on 9/11 with original parts from old NYC WTC. Causing goose bumps ...

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
