Access to the observation deck is via elevator only. Access is free of charge. The tower stays opened until 8 pm; several people climb the tower to watch sunset. In the area around the tower there is a handicraft fair.

The tower is the best place to see Brasília. The tower affords a direct view of the Three Powers Square and all monuments along the Monumental Axis; also, one can see the distribution of buildings across the wings of the Pilot Plan.
The photos of this page were taken from the observation deck of the tower.
