Description:

The world's tallest inclined tower serves up spectacular views of Montreal...

The world's tallest inclined tower serves up spectacular views of Montreal and surroundings areas. In just two minutes, its glassed-in cable car will whisk you 175 metres up to the Observatory. From this unique vantage point high in the Montreal sky, you can see up to 80 kilometres away in every direction: the mountains, the St. Lawrence River, Donwntown Montreal, its skyscapers and the Mount Royal. The Souvenirs of 1976 exhibit will take you back in time to (re)live the Montreal Olympic adventure-from the project's tentative beginnings to today, when the flame still burns.

A view of the city and a piece of history

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Thought the view was really nice to see from the top, the rest of the are is really outdated.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 time you are there. It was raining, so most of the unsheltered views, the windows... 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 roughly $10 each. It's cool to see an overview of the Olympic park.

I went to the tower beginning of october. The view with the colors in the trees was incredible! There are différent panels expIaining about history of this site and the city. Also it shows you the layout from above of the Olympics site. Maybe a little bit pricey but I found it was worth it. You do this only once... More

The Montreal Tower is a funicular ride to see a 360 degree view of the city. If you plan to still do this after reading this review, make sure to have your AAA (or CAA) card handy for the discount applied. I spent more time waiting for the funicular ride than I actually wanted to spend at the top. The... More

Take the metro to Viau (green) and it's a quick walk. It's a bit pricey at $23 CAD, but were were glad we went as the views were wonderful and if you do this upon first arriving in the city, it gives you perspective.

Did this as an add on to the Biodome. It was ok to do however over priced for what you get. CN Tower, etc are a much better experience for value.

The Montreal Tower is part of the Olympic area and the tower is the tallest inclined tower in the world, rising 165 meters at a 45-degree angle. There are telescopes to use to view areas of Montreal up close but the large view of Montreal is really spectacular.

Staying in Olympic Park & Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa)

Neighbourhood Profile
Olympic Park & Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa)
Named for the Olympic Stadium complexes built for the 1976 games, the Olympic Park and the surrounding neighbourhood of Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa) make up an invigorated area dedicated to "Space for Life." Around the Olympic Village's arenas and stadiums, Rue Sherbrooke welcomes exploration of its sculpture gardens decorated in the works of Jean-Paul Riopelle and its museum culture headed by the historical Château Dufresne. Maisonneuve Park offers interactive experiences at its bio-dome, insectarium, planetarium, and botanical gardens. For a change of scene, the gentrified space along Rue Ontario Est is packed with the city's newest, edgiest cafes, where an imaginative, youthful crowd sips foamy cappuccinos. A visit here is incomplete without stepping into the vast halls of the Maisonneuve Market, with flower stalls, wine depots, and local produce.
