It offers a new multimedia interpretation display that takes visitors on a fantastic journey through time. State-of-the-art technology in the form of interactive touch screen terminals, soundscapes, and 3D images takes travelers back through Québec City’s rich past.

Great panoramic view of the city, and some well done exhibits to help you learn about it. Tickets are good all day and I came back for sunset pics after visiting the nearby Parliament. In addition to a view of how far the city extends north of the main areas, you'll have a great view of the river, the Frontenac, the Citadelle and the Parliament. If you are walking up to this building from the main part of town, it's the tall, non-descript office tower beyond and to the right of Parliament - I assumed it was the hotel beyond and to the left of Parliament, which has a circular, revolving restaurant.

Like Toronto or Calgary the tower views are great, a full 360 degree panorama of the City and it's surrounds. You get a feel for the might of the St. Lawrence and the strategic placement of the City and you will be surprised at how green the City is, it is well worth the $10 entrance fee.

Worth the visit. After walking around Old Town, I did not realize how big the city was stretched out as far as I could see. Great views of the Old Town, St Lawrence and beyond.

Brilliantly done up. You will get a laugh from the stewardess from an earlier era, appearing on the info boxes as she describes the settings. Extremely well done, take about one to two hours up there. The window views and the photos you can take are very well worth the fee. To look down on the Parliament and Citadel is an amazing view.

31 storeys above the modern city, a great view out to the St Lawrence River beyond the old town. Very knowledgeable guides.
