It's fascinating to study the city of Baltimore from the top of the World Trade Center in the heart of the Inner Harbor. Pick a sunny day, of course--or at least not a foggy one--and enjoy seeing all the way to the Chesapeake Bay Bridge to the south. The neighborhoods and attractions of the city are laid out (and are... More

I'm glad my friend and I did this- the views of Baltimore were excellent and there are maps that show you where everything is. The memorial to 9/11 is also very touching.

I live in Baltimore and attended a function here in June. What a beautiful view of Baltimore City and the harbor. Definitely a must see if visiting Baltimore City.

This place is worth the time if you have about 20 minutes to spare. It costs $6 to go up to the observation level and you get a good view of all of baltimore. I enjoyed learning about the connection to the World Trade Center in New York and the displays.

History on the walls in front of you. Lots of good views from Federal Hill, Fells Point, Locust Point and up into the Greenspring Valley.

Very impressive with spectacular views of Baltimore and the Patapsco River. Poignant with a piece of the New York Trade Centre outside and information of 9/11 on the observation deck.

Visiting this sight was very touching. They have a large piece of steel from the World Trade Center on display out front. The Observation Deck had a spectacular view of the Inner Harbor. I strong recommend visiting

Great place to start your tour of Baltimore- & it was free when we visited on a Sunday 360 degree view of the city

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.
