Visiting Montreal Tower

Montreal Tower Observatory
Looming over the Olympic Park is the Montreal Tower Observatory, the largest inclined tower in the world. Originally built by French architect Roger Taillibert for the 1976 Olympics, today the tower is the preferred arena for major sporting events, concerts, large gatherings and regularly takes visitors to the top of the tower for breathtaking views of Montreal. Take a two-minute ride in a glass funicular to the top of the Montreal Tower Observatory. At 575 feet above ground, views from the tower are as unique as they are exceptional. From the Montreal Tower Observatory you’ll not only see many of the venues from the 1976 Olympic Games, but on a clear day, as far as the Laurentian Mountains. 

Shopping in Montreal Olympic Park

Montreal Olympic Park is home to two gift shops, one at the foot of the Montreal Tower Observatory in the Tourist Hall and the other at the top of the observatory. From stuffed animals to maple leaves, take home a variety of products that illustrate Quebec and Canadian themes. It is important to note that while the Gift Shop in the Tourist Hall is open year round, the Gift Shop at the top of the Montreal Tower Observatory is only open during the peak tourist season.
