visited with my two youngest and enjoyed the views after the climb to the top of the monument. Boys thought it was great and were amazed by how much they could see. Exhibits were a welcome distraction on the upward climb and had more than enough information for all ages.

Everything is nice about this attraction. It has some short very gentle walks around it, with some good view points along the trail. Once up at the monument you can climb the narrow staircase to the top. Each level of the monument has something interesting to offer, do stop and take a rest and maybe learn something about the history.... More

An interesting monument with stunning views. It is worth climbing the very narrow staircase to get to the top and see the hills.

Having climbed many stairs in Scotland to see the views from above, we were shocked to see that they charged nearly $15.00 each to climb the stairs. We believe, but are not sure, that included a 'ride' up to the memorial...a considerable hike. A lovely memorial, but pricey next to most 'climbing fees' we experienced. Touring the ground, without the... More

Well worth the climb. Stairs are narrow but easily to get up and down. Views are spectacular especially on a nice clear day. You can see for miles. Also recommend the lovely Legends Coffee House after you descend.

The views from the top are spectacular especially on a good clear day. Views over the battlefield and 360 degrees. Well worth climbing the stairs.

It is like climbing a lighthouse -- very narrow stone steps all the way to the top. Difficult when meeting others up/down. There are stops at 4 different floors with museum exhibits. Caution - the history is very violent and can be disturbing. The sword exhibit is very good. If you are physically able - don't miss this site. I... More

This is worth the visit simply for the view. Fair warning, the stairs are narrow and spiral all the way to the top, so it is no ideal for anyone with knee problems or a walking stick. There are a few stops (rooms) on the way up that offer a bit of history and a nice break from the climb.... More
