HISTORY & MORE

Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower
The Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower has been a part of Baltimore’s skyline since 1911 and a beacon for innovation and the arts since 2007. The tower has provided artists, writers, jewelers, architects, and more a space within to create, exhibit, interact with, and sell to the public. Gallery spaces showcase local and regional artists through free exhibitions, receptions and other events such as music and spoken word performances. 

The Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower is currently leasing artist studios for rent. The studios offer the opportunity to work and create inside one of Baltimore’s most historic arts buildings. With up to 300 square feet of space, the studios are spacious enough for private practice so that artists may work safely and socially distanced while still connected to a community of fellow creatives: painters, performers, photographers and more.

Learn more at www.bromoseltzertower.com and explore the tower virtually with our latest video tour! Reopening plans will be announced soon. 

Top of the World Observation Level
Top of the World Observation Level is located on the 27th floor of the World Trade Center, the world's tallest pentagonal building, and is the only Baltimore attraction to offer an awe-inspiring view of Maryland's urban center.

In addition to the sweeping views, the Observation Level also offers historical insights, photography, and a powerful permanent exhibition honoring the Maryland victims of 9/11.
