This monument is very impressive. We stopped by twice during our stay and had the place to ourselves. Definitely worth a visit.

What an impressive statue with such significance. A bit remote from anything else. A little sad to see something so grand (81 feet high) in such a remote location with nobody there. Well worth a visit though. Take time to walk up to it and look at the different sculptures on the four sides of the base. Ample parking. Located... More

One of the tallest granite monuments in the world, very impressive to look at. Not much else to do there. A good thing to see if you are going to Plymouth.

Been coming to Plymouth for years and I found this place by accident. The statue is MASSIVE. It has to be at least 4 stories tall! Parking is kinda weird (there is no parking lot) but this is a great place to take a walk or have a picnic

We arrived to the monument in the mid-afternoon expecting a large group of tourists at the site given its size and apparent significance. Only a police cruiser was there next to the only porta-potty. The statue itself is very nice and worth a look, but that's about it. The road that circles it is a hastily done gravel and there... More

Just amazing and profound. This should be in every history book and I had not heard about it before the movie 'Monumental'. There is so much to study here!

The National Monument to the Forefathers is this rather grand statue in the middle of a field of green just off a residential area of Plymouth. Entrance is free, parking is free. No shade is to be had. Check it out!

We had not heard about this monument, but found it very good. It is a tribute to the early pilgrims and is well done. We got some great photos of it and really enjoyed it.

Be sure to add this to your itinerary if you're visiting Plymouth or Provincetown via the Plymouth ferry. This is a great monument that can be seen from afar; once up close, you will garner an appreciation for the detail on each side of this monument as it pays tribute to our country's forefathers.
