Great way to see the city

Have been to the Baltimore World Trade Center many times over the years and it never gets old. It gives you such a great feel for the city including the Port facilities

If you are just rambling about in the Inner Harbor and walk past the world Trade Center pop in and head up to the top floor observation level for the best views in the city. Tickets are cheap and it doesn't take very long. It's a great side trip if you have a few minutes to kill.

I'm so glad that I decided to go up the top, the views over Baltimore are fantastic and they also have some nice info that you can read up on to give you a bit more of a feeling for the City. I'm not sure if it was a temporary inclusion or if it's permanent but there were some great... More

We planned on this to be the first thing we did for the day and it paid off. We were the first and only ones in the tower for at least 35 minutes. My family and I were able to take our time and it was great. I realize that this will not be the typical experience for most but... More

We came, we saw, we conquered in under 20 minutes. There needs to be more involved at this attraction. More money poured into it. Sure you get a great view of the harbor, but it lacked personality.

Let's say you've never been to Baltimore and want to take a look at the lay of the land. The second best place to be is at the Top of the World. The first way would be in a helicopter. The Top provides views in each direction. If the weather is cooperating, you'll see for miles. And there are info... More

We came here at it was convenient at the time, and we didn't really have any expectations. I thought the 9/11 memorial was well done. I really enjoyed seeing a panoramic view of the city with labels as it helped later with getting around the city. What I thought was really great was an employee of the observation level named...

Watched the Blue Angels soaring above the harbor, we raced around the level to watch them cut across the city and out to the mouth of the harbor to the Francis Scott Key Bridge. A perfect day with a fabulous view.

We visit NYC every 2 years. We love to go to the top of the Empire State Building to view the magnificent city of New York. The view is breathtaking. IF you are afraid of heights, this is not for you. If you want to take some amazing photos, this is a beautiful spot. The staff is friendly and the... More

A visit to the top of the world observation tower is a short but inexpensive thrill. For $6 for adults, you get an impressive view of all of Baltimore and the harbor. I highly recommend it.
