Very inexpensive to visit. Very beautiful view and scenery of Baltimore and the Inner Harbor. You can see for miles and miles! 360 panoramic views. Also, there is a lot of history here and a memorial of all the lives that were lost in the world trade center. They have a guide who can tell you all the history you... More

There is a cost to this, it's not free to go up to the top $6 adults $5 seniors $4 kids, but up there, the view is amazing! The inner harbor is beautiful from 27 stories up. There is a lot of history all around and there are those binnocular things for .25 to use. There are some seats up... More

Great way to see the city! It's easy to buy tickets there at the World Trade Center & the ride up is quick. We loved seeing so much of Baltimore from up there.

We spent a half an hour there - so much to see. Great tribute to 9/11. Must see while in Baltimore!!! Breathtaking views. Come early, we were first visitors that day, and were practically alone!!!

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.

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.
