They sell bottled water outside the gift shop - yet you are not allowed to drink that water in the monument (or gift shop). How could drinking water damage the stone monument. $5.00 to ride the elevator partway up the monument is a bit expensive. The grounds and site are very beautiful. There are park benches; but no picnic tables.

Take the time and do it. Monument is larger than I expected and the gift shop yielded a small surprise recommendation. Go to Mt. Nebo it's only 6 to 10 miles away in NY.

We were touring Vermont and New Hampshire and frankly just driving wherever the roads leads when we ran across this very nice monument. This is well worth a visit and time to explore the grounds and take a trip to the top for a small fee.You can find some of the most interesting sights just by accident ,like we did... More

When travelling to our hotel, we saw this BIG monument in the distance. I looked on the internet/maps and discovered it was a monument from the Revolutionary war. We figured out how to get there and found new history and a nice little gift shop to get Vermont-y things!! Worth the stop!

The monument is a short but lovely stop when visiting Bennington. The park ranger who takes you in the elevator to the top provides a brief summary of the monument and there is a display area in the base where you can learn more. The views at the observation deck are lovely and with the windows open, there is a... More

Spent one hour here and it was great. Elevator to the mid level was worth the 5 dollars. Lots of good historical perspective from the material inside the monument base. Volunteers were engaging and informative. Do this!

A beautiful view for miles. A very interesting guided tour on life back in the 1800's. A small gift shop at the base has very informative employee's that know a lot about the area.

This 300+ foot obelisk provides a scenic view in all directions spanning about 26 miles. A lot of history with this area so take a moment to read the displays and monuments to learn something.

The view from the top of the monument was awesome! You can see NY & MASS. There is now an elevator, so it's worth the visit even if you thought you couldn't climb the stairs. The staff in the gift shop where you buy your $5 ticket and the elevator operator were friendly, funny, knowledgable and nice. It's definitely worth... More
