An interesting place for history buffs. Others may not appreciate it as much. Some nice views and a chance to get some fresh air.

The monument, hill and view of surrounding neighborhood from the hill are lovely. The museum is in an old library building across the street. Maybe we were just historied out at the end of the day, but there wasn't much in the museum to hold our interest.

A great end to this part of the Freedom trail and worth the walk. When you visit two things are a must, listen to the Park Ranger tell you the store of Bunker Hill and climb the stairs to the top. The surrounding neighborhood is worth a walkthrough.

History at its finest! "Don't fire till you see the whites of their eyes!" They ran out of ammo that day, but showed the Red Coats that they were capable of inflicting severe damage on the King's troops. The visit is part of the grander scheme of taking in Boston and the surrounding area including Lexington and Concord.

This is located on the Freedom trail and Breed's Hill is the actual location of the the famous British siege. It is an impressive monument and within walking distance of the USS Constitution.

Ended up here at the end of a National Parks Ranger's free tour that began at the Charleston Navy Yard. We started just across from the gangway of "Old Ironsides" aka USS Constitution! We then walked out of the Navy Yard and through the streets up to Bunker Hill. Terrain is hilly so good walking shoes a must and not... More

If you have not been, this is a patriotic stop to turn back the time and understand the Boston Tea Party. Patriots began here and we are still surrounded by their heirs.

Looking around, you know that there's lots of history in this residential setting. I think every history buff should go at least once but for me at least, it was a bit of a disappointment after having been to the Washington Monument.

We walked to this monument which immediately reminded us all of the Washington Monument. Being on the top of the hill is pretty neat in itself. You can see how it is a great vantage point during a battle. You can get a free pass to take the steps to the top. Half of our group decided to do this... More

i enjoyed my visit here, the people of boston i found to be very friendly and the monument was interesting, however it was under construction at the time and made for poor pictures, but the huge Elm trees were quite lovely.
