Great way to view Ottawa from above. The elevator ride is a quick trip up to just below the clock. Visitors get a 360 look at Ottawa and the surrounding region.

The views of Ottawa from the Peace Tower are simply breath-taking and visiting the Tower is worth it. I was really impressed with the musical bells and I would highly recommend.

The Centre Block will close this summer for 10yrs for renovations. You can only do the Peace Tower tour at the conclusion of the full Parliament Hill tour. Incredible 360 degree view of Ottawa from the top.

At 11AM everyday they have a turning of the page ceremony inside the memorial chamber honoring people who died during conflict. We were in line to go up the elevator just to see the ceremony. Very cool and moving.

You have to go through some rigorous security screening first, but it is worth it. And it's free. But the centre block will close in the fall, for perhaps 10 years, so get there soon or lose out. The best views of the city from...More

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.
