If you are traveling between Los Angeles and Las Vegas on the freeway, you have saw this. I stop across the street in Baker every time I am passing through and look at this. It might sound corny, but it is fun to see.

This is a fun, quick stop. When we were there, it was 120 degrees. It made the thermometer ever cooler.

The thermometer makes for a fun, quick stop to take a few pictures. The thermometer is very tall and works! There is a gift shop but it isn't great. The gift shop should consider stocking more items around a hot theme. Hot candies, hot pads,...More

What a cool sightseeing stop. And the history of the place is amazing. I'd highly recommend making a pit stop on your way to Baker and the bathrooms are super clean!

This is a drive by while on your way to something else in Baker. Don't make a special stop off. It's reportedly not working. Our car moving registered 90 and the thermometer said 99, so not sure.More

Hello I'm so sorry you were not impressed with the World's Tallest Thermometer! I assure you it is working properly. If you compare it to other thermometer readings in town they almost alway match, cars are not always accurate. We have taken great pride in...More

on our way to Anaheim we drove through Baker, not knowing there was an actual large thermometer there.. I mean the tallest, and actually quite neat to see. Worth a stop if you have time.
