  • Great views from the four viewing platforms. Great picture taking from here! You can do open air decks or glassed observation areas and watch St. Mary's river and Canada. You are at a height of 210 fe...  read more »
  • The views from the top were nice. The exhibits were OK. I was not really impressed and think it's overpriced. 
  • I have visited this area several times as I have a family member who lives nearby. During our most recent visit to the Soo we decided to finally check out this Tower of History. The admission price wa...  read more »
  • Definitely worth the price of admission! 210 feet above Sault Saint Marie. With a 360- degree view. How could you go wrong. This is a photographers dream! You have views of the Soo Locks, the International Bridge, all of the historic Sault Saint Marie and picturesque Canadian. There is a very small Native American culture museum and a video of early history of the area. Small exhibits on local history, displaying local artifacts from the Ojibwa culture. $7. is all it cost. Cheaper then a meal at McDonald's. I think people don't take in consideration how much it cost to maintain a structure like this. Just like with any business in the U.P., they have a very short time to make money. Most business in the U.P. tell me that they only make money 4 months out of the year. With that being said, I'll definitely send a little more so the attractions are still there when I come back the next year and not shut down do to a lack of funds.
  • Awesome view of the city. Can watch ships, boats, airplanes from here very well. Able to see almost every landmark in the area from here.
  • Amazing historical location
  • we took the tour and just loved it . when we were at the top of the tower we watched a long boat go thru the locks and it was a great perspective to view it from .I would encourage you to go there on a windy day . The wind at the top of the tower can be unreal . They do have places to view the locks without going into the wind but why bother .Enjoy the breeze .
  • I didn't go in it but it looks really cool!
