This attraction is located in the heart of the Inner Harbor area in Baltimore. Displayed at the ground level entry to this tower is a metal frame portion from the fallen WTC towers on 9/11. Names of those from Maryland who perished on that day are etched on the huge base that the display is mounted on. Quite sobering. For... More

We had a nice day and therefor a great 360 degree view of Baltimore and great opportunity for pictures. (Too much to share!!!). Very impressive documentation on 9/11. When reading time frame, names and pictures and viewing the displayed pieces of the different places I was close to tears. Worth visiting!!

The first thing to grab you is the large piece of twisted metal from the fallen towers of 9/11 in front of the building. It's a monument dedicated to those Marylanders who were lost in that tragedy. But the visit is not at all depressing, more poignant and simply important if you're visiting with children. The 27th floor memorial is... More

First off, it's 5 dollars to get in but it's worth it in my opinion. They have an observation elevator that takes you straight up. If you're thinking it's on the roof, it's not. It's on the 27th floor. It's all windows so you pretty much see everything without the wind. They have pieces of metal and concrete donated from... More

We stumbled upon this place while walking around the inner harbor and was amazed to find it was only $5 for admission. It wasn't it busy day, so we walked right onto the elevator and the view from the top was amazing (unobstructed by any other nearby building). We stayed at the top (27th floor) for about 30 minutes and... More

So to get to the 27th floor it is $5 but so worth it. Youc an see FOREVER. The staff was great, answering questions offering additional history etc. The 911 memorial is also quite moving. The staff member that was helping us stated that they rotate local artists through as well. It was a great way to see and learn... More

A quick ride to the observation level. Beautiful views from all look outs. A sad reminder of 911. Stories were beautifully written.

The view from the 27th floor is amazing and only $5. At the top is the Maryland Memorial for the 9/11 victims. There is a 360 degree view with maps showing you what is where and explanations about some of the historic and modern buildings, what has been filmed here and the people that made Baltmore what it is.

A $5 entrance fee will get you to the 27th floor of the World Trade Center where you can get a panoramic view of Baltimore. For our first time to this city it was a great way to get acclimated.There is also a memorial to 9/11. There is a little gift shop on the 27th floor. The gentleman working there... More
