The tower is worth a visit. It's quite interesting to see Ottawa from this point of view and to learn about the music played on bells. It's also quite pretty inside!

The trip up in the elevator is worth it. The view from the top is incredible and seeing the Books of Remembrance is very moving. Every Canadian should visit.

Located in the. Canadian capital, Ottawa the Peace Tower is as prominent as a control tower is to an airport. Free tours take you inside the building and the guides will share the history of Canada. The surroundings are beautiful- a huge lawn in the front and a river at the back that divides the provinces ( states) of Ontario... More

You have to go visit the peace tower if you are staying in Ottawa! It has the best views of Ottawa and the surrounding area. When I was there it did not get very busy even though it doesn't have the largest viewing space. It is the perfect place to take picture of the city and surrounding Parliament Buildings.

The views are fantastic and our young people loved it. Costs nothing and is a part of Ottawa and Canada's historical legacy. Not to be missed.

Nothing more to say, don't miss out when in the Nation's capital. Like going to Paris and not seeing the Eiffel tower :).

I had friends in for a visit to Ottawa, and they wanted to see the Parliament Buildings. We were not able to see them but did get to go up the crocked elevator to the top of the Peace Tower. Very good views of Ottawa. Lots of history and touching tributes to Canadian war heros. Worth a visit!
