Long line but worth it. The view on top is amazing, is that alone is worth the time spent waiting to go up.

It's free, but the ticket system is a turn-off, as well as having to go through the security system. But the view from the tower is great, especially if the weather is good.

If you are at Parliament Hill then a visit to the Peace Tower is a must. The views from here are wonderful. The memorial at the bottom of the tower is also great to visit, very touching.

Well worth the time and elevator waits to go up. The view is spectacular. Just remember that the nicer the day the longer the crowds and line up. They do pack you into the elevator getting up .. and down again.

I am glad I checked out the Peace Tower in August 2016. You get a beautiful view of Ottawa and Gatineau, and the architecture of the tower is absolutely stunning. And I loved listening to the chimes of the bells... it was so beautiful and mesmerizing... I highly recommend checking out this observation deck.
