We went to the top and really enjoyed the views. Spectacular. Nice history displays. I would say do not miss this.

A trip to the Observatory is a great way to see Quebec in the winter without getting too cold. The views are breathtaking, and you can see a great amount of detail from 31 floors up! Student pricing is 8 CAD. adult is 10 CAD.

This was not initially on our to-do list but very glad we went! We went on a clear day and thoroughly enjoyed the spectacular 360 degree view. Multimedia displays/activities were informative re: history of the area. Would definitely recommend! $10 per adult was appropriate.

Foggy day when we went but still pretty good view, imagine it would be even more amazing on a beautiful day! Neat to see the city from way up high! Def worth the price of 10$/per person!

Paid a total of 20 bux for the gf and myself. We went once in the morning and watched the morning fog and the flow of the St. Lawerence flow out to see. We got informed that we could come back in the evening and watch the sunset. We took full advantage and came back in the evening and also... More

I enjoyed going to the top of the building and being able to see the city from way up high. You could do a 360 degree walk around the building to see everything. It was cool to be able to point out our hotel from way up there. It's too bad our trip was during rainy days, but the view... More

Great panoramic view of the city, and some well done exhibits to help you learn about it. Tickets are good all day and I came back for sunset pics after visiting the nearby Parliament. In addition to a view of how far the city extends north of the main areas, you'll have a great view of the river, the Frontenac,... More

Like Toronto or Calgary the tower views are great, a full 360 degree panorama of the City and it's surrounds. You get a feel for the might of the St. Lawrence and the strategic placement of the City and you will be surprised at how green the City is, it is well worth the $10 entrance fee.

Worth the visit. After walking around Old Town, I did not realize how big the city was stretched out as far as I could see. Great views of the Old Town, St Lawrence and beyond.

Brilliantly done up. You will get a laugh from the stewardess from an earlier era, appearing on the info boxes as she describes the settings. Extremely well done, take about one to two hours up there. The window views and the photos you can take are very well worth the fee. To look down on the Parliament and Citadel is... More
