This is a must. Great views and a moving tribute to those who have given their lives for the freedom of others.

It was a fairly long wait to go up in an elevator that could only hold 7 people plus an attendant. Obviously it is a small space and the elevator did not smell good at all. I'd say do it if you've never been up...More

Be sure to take the time to just stand back and be in awe of this tower and everything it represents.

Grand and beautiful. The symbol of Canada's hardwork to maintain peace and harmony to the rest of the world. It is not hard to notice as it is the tallest structure (by law) in Ottawa.

Fabulous views from the tower; bring your camera and enjoy seeing the city from this vantage point. You can see the bells from the elevator on the way up!

Es muy interesante ver el aspecto multicultural que hay en Canadá. Vimos un representante del parlamento de origen indio y el enorme respeto de los parlamentarios al tratar temas en que discrepaban. Admirable.
