This observatory makes you appreciate Baltimore more. It paints a fuller picture. No, it's not on the level of New York, but nothing is. This shows you all of the Baltimore neighborhoods with some historical elements. I also thought it was a nice touch to know how far cities were in each direction. With the Groupon, this is simply a... More

If you are in the area, consider this for a quick visit. The price is very reasonable and the view is spectacular. The staff was very friendly and facility was nice. It would be nice to see more information on the observation level.

In Baltimore just take half hour out to go to top of this building, the view is amazing and there is on display exhibits from 9-11. At $6.00 a person, you cant go wrong

Great place to go if you want to see really far stuff with telescopes or even naked eyes! No complaints about staff, time management, and service at this place!

Certainly not up to the standards of 360 in Chicago nor the Spaceneedle in Seattle,but better in some ways.More historical information(yes,Baltimore had its own early 1900s downtown fire) and the views help one to visualize the many waterways of the harbor and rivers.Also,very inexpensive. I appreciated the tribute paid to Baltimorians who lost their lives on 9/11.

Located in the center of the Inner Harbor area next to the National Aquarium, Top of the World is a great first stop to get an overview of the Baltimore area. With a 360 degree view (the observation level is the whole top floor of the building), information calling out landmarks, tourist information of other areas available and knowledgeable operators/guides,...

Had no idea about this place before visiting Baltimore. It is a tribute to September 11. Setup like the Willis Tower view in Chicago, you can walk the length of the top floor to get a 360 degree view. Don't miss this.
