I did go without any expectations and I was empressed. You will have a great view of Baltimore and read about multiple history facts on the boards. The lovely lady at the a entrance and the guy at the boutique on top are glad to see you and will offer you great service. It is not expensive (was free when... More

With everything else being quite pricey in the area, this is a welcome change. Going up 27 stories for an amazing 360° view of Baltimore was beautiful. It was $6/adult and $4 for our 11 year old. There is a lot of history from 9/11 up there that is unique.

On the 27th Floor, we went up for a few minutes and stayed an hour and a half. The height is just enough to bring the city into focus and offers memorable views of the entire downtown area. There is also a sobering memorial to 9/11.

I'm a sucker for looking at favorite places from a high vantage point: cathedral towers, hotel penthouses…you name it. As we strolled toward the Inner Harbor I was drawn to check the view from the Top of the World. 360 degrees of orienting myself in Baltimore!

What a great place to visit! At first I was hesitant to pay 20 dollars to go to the top. I thought with my kids, ages 9 and 12, we would not spend a lot of time up there. I was wrong. Upon entering the top floor, we were greeted by some very friendly workers. They gave the kids a... More

Great views. Not expensive. 360 degrees view of Baltimore from the 27th floor. Look for a groupon to save a couple of $.

This is a must see site! A photo op superb. A close up view of all the area and you can see things not possible on the ground. Take your time and enjoy the experience. It is worth the time and effort. Staff is very informative and helpful.

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
