It does not appear to be open much, you can see an olympic pool, there was just too much closed and it was out of the way, the subway goes right to it if you really want to go.

This tower offers great views of Montreal and surrounding areas. The Furnicular ride is a neat way to climb a building and gives a tease of the views from the observation deck. It is a fun touristy thing to do when visiting Montreal.

The views are nice, but this place is way over priced. You first have to pay to park which was about $18. Then just to go up in the tower was about $25 each. Then you take the elevator to the top, look out and...More

We went up the tower as a package deal with the Biodome next door. If this had cost $10 per person, my opinion would be different. But at $20 per person, I expected more. That said, we enjoyed the ride up the funicular, especially emerging...More

The tower is an interesting piece of olympic history and architecture. It provided very nice views of the city. The cost was a little high for the overall experience.

Thought the view was really nice to see from the top, the rest of the are is really outdated. I thought it wasn't worth the money.

Last time I went was 27 years ago with out of town guests. This time, due to a function in the tower. As others commented, $23.50 each is steep. What was not said was that it is another $18.00 to park your car for the...More

It is a great landmark and in a clear day, the view is amazing. However, the CAN$ 23,25 per person is too much for what it is. Just can't understand why they need to keep it so expensive.

We went to the biodome and Tower on a rainy Saturday. The tower was not very busy and the views were not good because of the rain and fog. The ride up was great and the view would be amazing on a clear day. Cost...More

From peel to Viau was about 20 minutes, so I'd guess about the same from one stop further.
