The building isn't very high but you will get a lovely panoramic view from the top still. You can overlook the city through the windows. As you walk trough, you can see pictures and read up on the history on the building etc too.

This is the highest point you can get in Québec City. You will see the configuration of the city but the best view from Québec is from the ground.

It is a nice place to get a bird eye vue of the surrounding of Québec city. The price is too high, reasonable price.
