This is the visitor center where you line up at 9am each morning to get the free tickets for guided tour of the Parliament. This summer there is a virtual reality kiosk that you can have a virtual 360 tour of the peace towel.

Well informed staff and helpful. Clean, cool (It was 31°) with washrooms and bag checks. This is where you go to get your Parlimentary Tour tickets and arrive early as they go quickly. Doors open at 9.

I signed up for a free family tour of Parliament with them on a weekend. The line was 7 people long but the staff were quick and friendly.

For tourists, this may be a good first stop to organize your sight seeing in the city. There is information in English and French and the staff are very helpful. Close to many downtown hotels and across from the Parliament Buildings.

The ideal first stop on Ottawa to find out info. Not least because I couldn't find a single guide book in England which covered Ottawa at all!!! Helpful staff.

We came by this place for a lunch break after our cruise at the Thousand Islands which was spectacular. It was around 11.45am when we arrived. The Capital Information Kiosk, which I would regard to as a Center, is a one-stop service center for tourists...More
