We arrived a short time before closing. The staff were very friendly. The top floor is surrounded by windows and you can walk around and look in every direction. It gives you a real sense of the geography of the area. When we were leaving we got into a very lively discussion with a local man about Quebec and politics in the U.S.
Was happy we were able to go to the observation deck and look over the city. It was so clear and could see for miles. Excellent way to see everything and take it all in.
The Observatoire de la Capitale is on the 31st floor of what looks like an office building next to the National Assembly. We were staying at the Delta Hotel across the street so it was very easy to get to. It cost $14.50 to take the ride up the elevator to visit. It was free for my daughter who was 10. There is a view in all directions and some interactive screen that describe the different landmarks. If you are staying nearby I think this is a good place to start your tour of Quebec city. You get a quick idea of where the different landmarks are and how to get there on foot.
It's an interactive visit. The building's location gives you the privilege to admire this wonderful city, the old part as the new one. Must visit.
