“You Can Do It!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

Well worth the climb! It's not even that strenuous. Stairs and ramps alternate, and you can take your time. Plus, it's a breeze coming down. The day we were there was clear, and we could actually see the Boston skyline!

“Great Mueseum, Monument was closed when we went.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Mueseum was well put together and very informative, with a nice range of exhibits beyond what you would expect. A little pricey for what I feel you get however. Monument was closed for rennovations when we attended.

“Beautiful views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

Did not think I wanted to do the museum, but glad I did. Learned a lot about the history of the pilgrims landing first in Provincetown. The walk up the tour was worth the view! Beautiful.

“not worth the climb”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

dull, boring and too much of a trek. just was not my cup of tea. Maybe if you need something else to entertain the kids the taxidermied animals may fascinate.
