After most of a day visiting the Olympic Site, I came away slightly confused and a little disappointed - and questioning my morals. We caught the Metro and walked to the entrance not really knowing what to expect. You then have a decision to make to purchase the correct ticket. Botanical Gardens?, Biodome?, Tower? - help!!.... Pleasant staff gave us... More

We took a recommendation from our waitress to visit Montreal's Olympic site from 1976..and it was fab. The highlight is the trip via funicular up the leaning tower to the observation deck. Fab views all across Montreal that gave perspective of the city. Some histories of the 76 heroes and a small gift shop that's not really offering to full... More

The Observation tower at the Olympic park was well worth what we paid. We paid 1/2 price using our AAA discount. This was a much better deal than the combo ticket deals offered with the purchase of a Biodome ticket. The views were excellent from above. There was even a guide in the observation deck who answered questions. Be sure... More

You can ascend by cable car (a bit pricy at $32 a person but worth it). There is a very animated guide who shows you how the tower was developed, how this related to the evolving history of the Stadium, and above all, how Montreal took nearly 40 years to pay off the debt. The tower is open until 9pm,... More

Not much to do at the top but the view is amazing. My five year old easily bored but I could have spent a lot of time at the top of the stadium looking at the view. Worth checking out.

The views from the tower are the greatest ones you will find of Montreal. The ride on the tram was great. I am not comfortable with heights and trams but this one was not too bad.
