When you're touring Baltimore homes for sale, don't miss a chance to tour the Bromo Arts District and the Bromo Seltzer Clock Tower.
Baltimore's historic Bromo Seltzer Clock Tower has been a part of the city's skyline since 1911. The tower, originally called Emerson Tower, was built by Captain Isaac Emerson, the person responsible for inventing the headache medicine Bromo Seltzer.
The 15-story landmark, located on the West side of downtown Baltimore, is now home to studio space for both visual and literary artists. It features open galleries, a museum, and tours of the clock's inner-workings. Whether you're a Baltimore local or a visitor, exploring the Bromo Seltzer Clock Tower is a fun way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
The Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower is home to a wide variety of resident artists including photographers, jewels, architects, writers, and more. Their work is displayed both in their studios and in the tower's common areas. Many of the artists are on site, enjoying the interaction with tower visitors. If something strikes your fancy, you're in luck. All of the art on display is also for sale.
The studios are open on Saturdays from 12 pm until 4 pm.
The museum houses a collection of antique glass bottles, including many that were used to package Bromo Seltzer. The museum also includes The Maryland Glass Company Room, which was responsible for the production of almost 90 percent of the blue glass made in the United States.
The museum is open on Saturdays from 11 am until 4 pm.
Only accessible through a guided tour, the tower's pendulum and clock levels are a sight to see. You'll be amazed by the impressive 24-foot dials of the world's largest non-chiming, gravity-driven, 4-dial clock. Not only are the inner workings of the clock interesting for visitors of all ages, but it's also a photographer's dream.
You can tour the clock on Saturdays at 11:30 am, 12:30 pm, 1:30 pm, and 2:30 pm. The cost is $8 per person.
Once you've finished checking out the Bromo Seltzer Tower, your day isn't over. The entire nearby area is an arts and entertainment district. Here you can continue to expand your horizons by visiting the Edgar Allan Poe House and Museum, the Westminster Hall and Burial Ground, and the infamous Read's drug store.
Your Baltimore experience wouldn't be complete without stopping to shop at the historic Lexington Market. Established in 1782, it's the country's longest continually-running open-air market.
End your evening with a national Broadway show at the historic Hippodrome Theatre or enjoy a local production at Everyman Theatre.
