The Anne Hutchinson Tour of Provincetown

2 reviews
Get an introduction to Provincetown from America's most infamous colonial woman. Decidedly NOT a Pilgrim, Anne Hutchinson knows her history well enough to have been banished from Massachusetts 400 years ago and will walk you through the center of town to enliven central sites poignant to Ptown's story. Don't expect a long trek (0.5 mi), but do expect the "licentiousness and sinful liberty" that got Anne banished long ago. Some have called it comedy, making the tour for adults only. Receiving the seal of the Spirit from Anne takes roughly an hour. Tour is $15 plus whatever fees are charged by whatever platform you found this... unique... bauble of Cape Cod tourism on.<br><br>Enjoy!
$18.75 per adult

This is a historical monument built in the early twentieth century. The monument can be seen from anywhere in Provincetown. It is about a half hour climb to get to the top where visitors can see great views in all directions. The museum tells of the history of the area.

Great monument with a view from the top that is definitely worth the climb and the entrance fee - a panoramic view of Provincetown. During COVID-19, they are requiring advance reservations online. We made ours from outside using the QR codes on the signs - super easy. The staff here is super friendly, they have some awesome PTown merch (my friends and I got some bookmarks and sweatshirts), and the small museum has a few interesting exhibits and fun facts.

The monument itself is a 100 year old tower with great views but tough to even get to. I noticed throughout my visit that Provincetown is not disabled friendly. This one was impossible. I made the stairs up to the base and viewing platform, but left the tower itself to my companion. The museum however was excellent - historic but updated.

I knew nothing of Provincetown history, so found the museum really interesting and informative. The walk up to the top of the monument isn’t too taxing - it’s mainly by slopes, there aren’t very tight steps - and the view at the top is rewarding, despite the glass. You can make out the shape of the headland, and see the various lighthouses that are iconic of Cape Code. This is definitely worth the entrance fee.
