Very disappointed the tower was closed. We did get to the room with the names of the fallen soldiers. Still wonderful to see.

Living in Ottawa, I take many of the attractions here for granted and have not gone out of my way to actively visit many of them. On a whim, I decided to take a ride up to the observation deck of the Peace Tower during a quick visit to Parliament.Hill. Even though I am bothered by heights, I did not mind the amazing view of Ottawa from the top of the Peace Tower. Hearing the bells go off while I was up there was also a treat. If you can spare the time, I would recommend taking the trip to the observation deck and check out the view.

What a breathtaking panoramic view of the city of Ottawa from the top of the peace Tower at center block on Parliament Hill. As part of the free tour of Parliament Hill you are allowed to take the elevator up to the top of the Peace Tower. On your way out don't forget to stop and pay tribute to all of the fallen soldiers from all of the wars. All of their names are commemorated in books at the base of the Peace Tower.

Seeing the Peace Tower as part of the tour inside the Main Parliament Building is highly recommended on sunny days.

Tickets for the whole tour are Free only on the day of and should be picked up early. Limited number of tickets for each tour time.
