I liked the free museum, especially the program outlining the battle. It was very educational and enjoyable to sit through the 10 minute or so presentation. I learned a lot about the battle and the war from this.

In our time of needing to be entertained and wowed in order to keep our attention it is probable that some families or individuals would skip visiting Bunker Hill. Boston is such a hot bed of history and Bunker Hill is a key part of that. We loved walking the Freedom Trail up the neighborhood streets, winding around and looking... More

Not actually. The revolutionaries lost the battle but it was a physiological victory since they nearly defeated the British forces in the first intentional battle of the war. Across the street from the Monument is the museum, the first floor of which mostly focuses on the Bunker Hill Society. The second floor had a low-tech, but interesting diorama and a... More

Though the monument is beautiful & the walk from the Constitution is very pleasant - the walk UP the monument is challenging !! We were quickly ushered in and up! The walk is a tight dark spiral staircase of just under 300 steps. People are also passing you going down - it makes a right squeeze tighter. There is no... More

Bunker Hill is one of two hills overlooking Charlestown which is north of Boston proper, across the Charles River. The famous battle of Bunker Hill was mostly fought on the other hill, Breed’s Hill, just southeast of Bunker Hill and closer to the waterfront from where the British advanced. Today Bunker Hill is a residential neighborhood and the Bunker Hill... More

We visited her on New Year's Day so the actual monument was closed, however, this didn't actually spoil the experience as the views from the bottom of the monument and at top of the hill are awesome, we completed the freedom trail by visiting here and really enjoyed the walk up the hill through the really old traditional houses which...

This site is a really amazing place. To stand where very important American history actually happened and to actually see live re-enactments and get explanations of the times. Very interesting - A MUST SEE. And before visiting this place and the Freedom Trail in general, I wasn't really even into history that much.

Bunker Hill has some great stories and is full of local history. I remember coming here as a kid, but I appreciate it more now.

The monument is an impressive and important part of our nation's history. It's also a chance to get a great view of the Boston area if you can handle the 294 steps to the top. The associated museum is not without interest, but the panorama from the top (see attached photos) is the real reason to do this. It's also... More
