Tours

A forty-five minute history presentation presents the colorful, well-known Baltimore figure, which is behind the iconic tower the clock and his famous headache remedy Bromo Seltzer. The Emerson Tower comes to life as we share humorous stories which highlight the forward thinking business and marketing strategies of Isaac Emerson.  The presentation starts with a video and ends on a very high note as guests climb to the 16th floor via a “ships ladder”’ into the marvelous industrial mechanical room clock room, which houses the clock mechanism, the elevator switchboards and motors. Guests are encouraged to bring their cameras to capture the 24-foot clock dials as a backdrop. Visitors can also take in the recent reinstallation of the iconic clock hands by the Balzer Family Clock Works. 

Tours cost $8. Access into the clock room is by ships ladder which requires that each guest sign a liability waiver stating they are aware of the danger of climbing the ladder. Please arrive 10 minutes prior to the tour you wish to participate in.

TOUR TIMES: 11:30AM, 12:30PM, 1:30PM and 2:30PM. Guests are encouraged to check out the history museum on the 15th floor and the artwork throughout the building before or after their tours.
