It had been many years since we'd stopped in Baker and went to the World's Tallest Thermometer. Yesterday was an ideal day as we stopped by and read the top lighted section -- it read 82. The thermometer has undergone some changes over the decades, and I remember seeing it read 112 a long time ago -- yes that WAS... More

We were driving from LA to Las Vegas, we stopped at Baker for lunch at A&W, and visited the tallest thermometer in the world. So glad we did it..

On our drive to Las Vegas we stopped by Baker. One of the things we saw there was the World's Tallest Thermometer, which is 134 feet tall. On the day we were there, temperatures were in the mid 80s. With it being in the desert, it has however reached temperatures of 134 degrees. So, its an interesting and fun thing... More

This is a stop for the "memory picture" or a photo to show to friends. Temperatures are posted in digital numbers. Well worth the stop, especially if you are on the way to Peggy Sue's diner, or are stoping at Mad Greek in town.

I'm sorry that you did not find anything in our souvenir store to interest you. We have tried hard to carry many different things. T-Shirts, Thermometers, Keychains, books, postcards, shot glasses, actual lightbulbs from the thermometer, statues, magnets, pencils, coloring books etc. If you could tell me what you were looking for that we didn't carry I would love to...

It's a landmark however not that exciting seeing that the restaurant next to it along with a lot of places in the town look abandoned

We must agree that the many closed businesses in town are a very sad sight. The good news is that business in town has been picking up and we are hoping that that renovation of the Worlds Tallest Thermometer has helped. We invite you to come back and step inside our gift shop and allow us to tell you our... More

Very friendly staff with a very interesting history of Baker and the thermometer. It's a nice break when you're on the road everyone should check it out. But you have some pretty cool souvenirs.
