This was my final visiting place in Plymouth before I had to leave today.... I'm at LaGuardia now and ran out of time to include this earlier today. This statue is so tall!! I don't know how tall but I would estimate around feet?????? It's simply beautiful for a piece of art this big.... my friend told me I had... More

Yes, this monument is a site on the Plymouth "visiting" map, but I rank it an "afterthought." It is one of the least memorable locations in Plymouth. While a statement of early 20th century interest in the "Founders Story" it really offers little new to interpretation or insight into parts of the story. I am writing a review to help... More

We were staying in Plymouth and this was part of our home made walking tour. A sunny Sunday morning....and no-one at all at the monument. An eye catching monument - which emphasises the principles on which the USA is based. Memorable - not to be missed if you are in this area.

Had we been doing a driving holiday and saw this attraction on a road map we likely would not have bothered to stop here. But my gosh, it is simply amazing! One of the most impressive monuments we've seen! It is gigantic even at 81 feet tall. One wonders how it was all built...from the central lady ‘Faith’ to all... More

This beautiful and awe inspiring monument captures the character qualities and principles that the pilgrims had. It is very large and impressive. Visiting in the fall or winter gives you a bonus view of the harbor through the defoliated trees. The only thing really missing is some interpretive signs and plackards to give the history and meaning of the monument.... More

This is breathtaking! I'm so glad I took the time to visit it. It stands so tall and stands for all that the United States should represent. It is splendid and should not be missed.

Wanted to see this monument - so glad it was open the day we visited. There was a very nice ranger there to answer questions - he informed us upon arrival that the climb was 125 steps.

I have been wanting to see this in person ever since seeing it on Kirk Cameron's documentary"Monumental." It was huge and very moving. Everyone should see and know about the story behind it!

This gem of a monument is easy to miss if you are not looking for it because it is located in the center of an old neighborhood. The height is massive and as soon as your eyes see it-you will know it's not just a statue. There is a sidewalk available for wheelchair or strollers but it is up a... More
