The views from the tour are incredible. For $5 it takes you up to the top and have all around views of the city and the bay. We ended up not doing anything else in the city but was glad to see the views for the top. Must see.

This a great tower to go up. It is not too high but offers a nice view. Also it is very close to all the other attractions. Nice for a quick visit.

For $5 you can view metropolitan Baltimore from all directions at the top story of this building. It boasts that it's the world's tallest pentagonal structure but it's only 27 stories high. It includes a nice tribute to 9/11; the names of all the victims are etched in the windows. There is also a nice tribute to the 68 Maryland... More

This was an excellent way to kick off a weekend in the inner harbor, and I highly recommend it as your first stop in Baltimore. It was only $5 a person to get to the top, and the view was breathaking. You could see all of the harbor, downtown, etc. The staff was also VERY helpful, letting us know about... More

This observation level offers sweeping views of the city of Baltimore, its suburbs and Chesapeake Bay. When we visited there was also a small exhibit about 9/11 with artifacts from NYC and the Pentagon, and a photographic memorial to Baltimoreans killed in the attacks.

Great views of Baltimore and one of the cheaper attractions in the inner harbor at $5 per person. The 9/11 memorial they have is very moving and a great tribute to the Maryland residents who died in the attacks.

Incredibly worth the $5 entrance fee. I did not realize there was such a big memorial to 9/11/01 housed at the foot of the building and at the top! Every American should see this. They had mangled steel from the WTC in NYC, limestone from the Pentagon, and stone form Pennsylvania. The names of all the victims were on the... More

I recently went down to Baltimore with a friend to visit another friend who was attending Otakon, and we walked past the World Trade Center and, to my delight, found it was open to the public. It's only $5 to go inside and the elevator gets you up there pretty quickly. It offers great views of the city and the... More

Start off with the TIP: call ahead to make sure the hours for the day you are visiting are as posted on the internet. We arrived an hour before closing only to find they were closing early that day due to a private event scheduled that evening resulting in an early close that day. And from talking with the staff...
