My husband and I quietly renewed our vows to each other on our first anniversary here. The sights are beautiful and you get a really great view of the city and harbor. The 9-11 Museum there is also very powerful. It's overwhelming the list of names of those who died.

The view from the top is nice...the building itself seems outta place along the waterfront but offers a good view. I went about 30 minutes before sunset and the side facing west was hard to see through as the sun really highlights the dirty exterior of the glass. There are several placards describing local sites and history. Small gift shop... More

What a beautiful view and tribute to those lost on 9/11, especially those from Maryland. Views were breathtaking.

This was the best experience ever! I enjoyed visiting this site for the first time. I didn't realize there was a WTC in Baltimore, MD.....I'm from NY, thus I was only aware of the WTC there not in MD. Great experience for my family and I.

Got to go for an event and it was worth the wait to be able to see Baltimore from above. Recommended for tourists and locals alike to pick out your favorite Charm City sites.

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.
