One of the best observation decks that I've visited. Provides a 360 view of the city with a couple of tablets on each side that contain additional information on most important landmarks along with historical pictures. The walls have plenty of information on the city and province of Quebec, and its place in the world and how it compares to other cities and countries. Very well organized. The only 2 pieces that I didn't enjoy were the video presentations in between the observation halls that were quite dizzying and chaotic to my taste.
The observatory is located at the top floor of building providing all around view of Quebec city. The observatory had been designed remarkably well providing view of all four directions of East, West, North and South. The top floor has been creatively designed to provide relevant information of distanced from important cities of the world. The information provided at walls and video interactive devices provide additional information. You can see all the important landmarks if the city from top. If you are looking for out of world place then you may get slightly disappointed. The ticket is high on price with respect to utility and attraction of place. So kindly avoid if you are short of money or short of time.
It's a nice place to go when it is absolutely boiling outside. Has great view from the top of the building. You can see everything from the top. The view is magnificent. Apart from giving you a feast for the eyes, the interior has got some very interesting facts about Quebec and that allow you to enjoy your visit better! Good money!
A fantastic installation from which to view the entire city, especially the old city of Quebec. The touch screens, in three languages (French, English and Spanish) highlight the key places/buildings of interest in all four directions, as well as two video presentations that feature interesting takes on the city, the people and places. My wife and I were very impressed by this observation floor, which is on the 31st or top floor of the building. At $15 per adult, it offers real value for money, with an unparalleled 360 degree view. A must for anyone who visits Quebec City!!!
It does give a 360 degree view but I wouldnt have minded skipping it. It was quite expensive and due to the glass protecting it you can't take very many good photos. If your looking for a great view you should do on the Quebec City ferry ride. It's cheaper and gives the best view of the whole city, the Chateau in particular.
