This memorial can be seen for mile's away. The hilltop is such a beautiful tribute to what our forefathers sacrificed for the freedom of all who call themselves Americans. The elevator to the viewing station was very smooth and not strange feeling at all. Once your up there you get a beautiful view for miles, and small Windows bring in... More

Great view. Elevator operator was very knowledgeable, but you need to ask questions. Not the most thought-provoking place, but if you are in the area.... A great plan would be to pair this with a walking tour of the village of Bennington..... Lots of history in this area and an incredibly beautiful town....

The staff are friendly and there is no real waiting to go up and see the views. It reminds me of the Washington monument in style but the vistas are more bucolic. Worth the stop if you are in the area.

This monument pays tribute to an early success in the US Revolutionary War and the actual battle has all of the twists and turns of New England! The actual battle was fought in New York (a short distance away by car), but the monument is in Vermont (albeit on the site of the munitions that were being sought and contested)!... More

Love the monument and I love seeing it lit up at night as we pull into Bennington. It's a beautiful site and the area is wonderful. We love coming. They have a yearly step-run and a 5k!

We did not ride the elevator to the top. We actually saw the monument from nearby Willow Park, which was a good place to take a stretch break from a drive and to play disc golf in this hilly park. Unfortunately, it was very hot that day, so I only played a couple of holes, but there were shade trees... More

Went up to the Bennington Monument to revisit as we had been there before. It is still an awesome structure and the grounds are beautiful.

We love taking the elevator up in the monument. The fee is small and the children love visiting. There is a gift shop, clean restrooms and a nice green area for kids to run and stretch.
