“Neat place to start.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2009

Not quite as tall as some of the surrounding buildings, but still an excellent view of the Inner Harbor and city of Baltimore. Start your visit here to get an idea of the layout. Some excellent views of the area, but they could have used some window cleaning on one side of the building. No lines, no waiting on June 30 even though plenty of people were in town for the Orioles-Red Sox game. Get as part of Harbor Pass from the Baltimore Visitors Center and save some $$$.

“Best place to plan your visit to Baltimore”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2009

We arrived in Baltimore of a Friday. One of the first things we did was go the observation level on the 27th floor of The World Trade Center. We were lucky to have beautiful weather so the veiws were great! I was surprised at all of the information up there .You do have to take your time and read it but it was Baltimore in a nutshell. We we able to actually plan our day because we could see where we going to go. The staff were very helpful from telling us little tidbits about Baltimore, to reccomending a place to eat and how to get around the harbor. We loved it!

“Nice view, but only 27 floors up and still fairly pricey”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2009

$5/person is a bit steep to me to ride an elevator up 27 floors. I've stayed in hotels on higher floors than that. A lot. The view is really nice - I always love to see cities from above, it's a great way to orientate yourself - but come on. Spent about 10 minutes up there. Can't imagine staying longer, which makes it a pricey trip.

Couple footnotes: one, the tiny gift shop up there was actually cheaper than many of the stores around the harbor for the exact same items, and two, the line was short in March.

“Great Attraction and Great Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2009

My family visited on a recent weekday and found this to be a good side trip in the Inner Harbor.

Make sure to visit on a clear and sunny day or obviously you will see nothing. And make sure to visit baltimore.org and they sometimes have BOGO coupons.

You get a good 360 degree view of everything around the Inner Harbor and you can see how certain things have changed just since the signs were made that tell you what you looking at.

“Great view, great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2007

While at Inner Harbor, and trying to get out of the Memorial Day Weekend heat, my boyfriend and I (20-somethings) decided to go to the World Trade Center Observation Deck for $5 per person. It was a beautiful view and a nice time outside of the heat.
