If you want the "real" experience of Baltimore History, the Bromo Seltzer Tower is an overlooked downtown attraction. From the absolutely lovely Baltimore folks who give you the tour of the place, and the fascinating clock tower experience, this is the place to visit! Gives you a real feel for Charm City. Ernie Dimler, probably the world-renown expert on Bromo... More

I had a little time so I made a visit, and I did do the tour. It is an amazing place, and the people were very nice. One downside, they are only open on Saturdays.

Passed by the Bromo Seltzer Tower, but didn't go inside as it was not opened. Nevertheless I thought it was quite a remarkable sight. This landmark is truly iconic to Baltimore and accompanies a rich history! Worth visiting if you know the opening times.

We stopped by here due to a recommendation of a local. We did not take a guided tour, and just decided to do our own thing. We took the elevator to the top, and walked down each floor viewing the "art" and seltzer collections. I must say that I was not impressed with this place. Most of the art seemed... More

It was a nice inexpensive tour and we learned a lot about the history of Baltimore and Bromo Seltzer. The only negative is it is not air conditioned so on those torturous hot days, I would skip it.

Saturday tours for $5. Really cool historical information about the building, the company and inventor of Bromo Seltzer as well as the current use of the building by artists. Neat collection of blue glass and company collectibles from Ernie Dimler and getting to tour the clock tower was fantastic.

The Bromo Seltzer Tower, which at one time did have a bottle of the product on the top, is a city icon. The clock on all sides, when they are working, keep downtown folks on time. Today the building is used by artists. On occasion there is an open house.
