“A Great View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

I visited the Bennington Battle Monument with a friend on a lovely morning in mid September. My friend and I enjoyed the revolutionary war historical artifacts and information as well as the spectacular 360 degree view of the Berkshires, Green Mountains, and the town of Bennington. If you plan to visit the area, this high perspective on it is a must.

“Worth it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

The elevator ride to the top provides beautiful views of the beautiful countryside. The small musuem at the base is very interesting. Of special interest was the guest book from the same date one hundred years ago.

“So worth the price of admission!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

A beautiful testament to another time, the Bennington Monument is a gift from our predecessors that we may still enjoy the beauty of their countryside as well as remember those that died for our freedom. A simple quirky museum at the base and rapid elevator ride to the top make for a fun break in a long drive or a nice way to orient yourself to the town and nearby area.

“History with a view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

From the top of the monument you can see New York, Vermont and Massachusetts. There are plaques and statues around that you can read and learn about the battle. Worth a stop to learn some history and take in the view.
