We saw this statue on the movie, Monumental. Couldn't wait to see it in real live and wow! It did not disappoint. Loved seeing the history of what our Forefathers built our country on. Spectacular!

We went late in the afternoon when it turned out that the Plymouth 400 had been having an annual celebration. Most vendors had already packed up but the kids were delighted to see re-enact ours from President Abe Lincoln's Guard. The re-enact ours were so friendly and happy to tell the kids about their guns and other antiques. That said,... More

A truly great memorial. A great history lesson on who the people were who came over on the Mayflower.

We went to the monument after seeing the reviews on Trip Advisor. We were the only ones there! It's huge and very detailed. My husband, two sons, and I all thought it was very cool! It's in a lovely park and it was easy to get to. We parked right there and wandered around it for 10 or 15 minutes... More

Located within a huge, open 11-acre park, this impressive, granite monument stands as a symbol of those that came seeking civil and religious freedoms. This monument is extremely detailed in depicting the main figures of Faith, Morality, Law, and Education. The central figure "Faith", stands with here right hand pointing to the heavens and her left hand grasping the Bible.... More

On our way out of town, we stopped to see the monument and were amazed at the size of it. It is beautifully done and a real tribute to those brave individuals who risked it all to gain freedom.

My grandmother and grandfather took some photos here in the late 1950s, so we set to to replicate them nearly 60 years later. It looks pretty much exactly the same as it did then, with some bushy trees near the base that were not there back then. It's worth a few minutes during a Plymouth visit.

Classic New England must see - nice park in town. Parking was a little tight but there were enough spaces available if you didn't mind the walk. Many restaurants and tourist shops along the street.

A great piece of history and a quiet place to park for free, have luch on the grass etc. Easy to park here if you have a 5th wheel or bus etc. Worth a visit

I've lived in Massachusetts for 30 years, have been to Plymouth several times, but had never heard of this monument until I watched the "Monumental" documentary. I was so inspired by the movie, that we had to go see the monument in person. It was so inspiring!. Don't miss it. The saddest part was that there were only two people... More
