We were actually there in October of 2013. It is very inexpensive for an attraction like this. $3 as I recall. And you don't have to climb it. They have an elevator. We went in the fall - New England fall! - so the views were glorious in all directions!

This tower was awesome. The elevator was not working a guy was working and there was a man working on it. So we took pics. of the monument and statues . We even went in the gift shop and bought some things. it still was not fixed. So we will come back. They have a modest fee when the elevator... More

The Bennington Battle Monument is located on a hill in probably the most beautiful part of Bennington. For a small charge, you can ride the elevator to an observation level from which all of Bennington is visible. Monument Avenue leading up to the monument has some beautiful vintage homes.

Commemorating the American victory at the Battle of Bennington (and a true turning point in the war for independence), the Bennington Battle Monument was erected by the State of Vermont in the early 1900's and it is much larger than you think. It is 300 feet high and can be seen almost the instant you cross into Vermont from New... More

Doh! It was still closed when we visited, so no inside access, but it's massive in size and is a nice monument to the battle and the soldiers involved. The location and layout reminded me of the Monument of our Forefathers in Plymouth, MA.

few people know the history, and you can read it right on plaques here. The old church and cemetery are a must, and this is high ground with a view, so a must stop also when there anyhow

You can see this for miles around and so it can be very useful if you get lost. We were not able to go inside as it was still closed for the season. Nevertheless it is a great place to walk around and take photos the surrounding countryside

This is an absolute must-see when you're in Bennington. The short elevator ride to the top is all that it takes for the best view in Vermont. The history of this area is as vast as the view is. There's a nice gift shop where you'll buy your ticket and the grounds are beautiful.
