A nice little museum and monument close to where the Pilgrims first arrived. It’s at least a hundred steps to the top but you have beautiful views of the entire cape cod and Provincetown.

It's a monument!

We got there just as they were closing early for an event, so we only got to see the monument. It is massive and the history is interesting. Would definitely have liked to see more. Provincetown is crowded and a bit difficult to maneuver through.

The. Beat viewpoint in the city.

This was a must do. The tower is on the highest point and is very unique. Instead we f stairs or an elevator it had ramps around the perimeter. I have never seen this approach, and it made it much easier to climb. We loved the whole experience!

Fun climb and great museum. Easily walkable from downtown. Reservations available online, but they did not fill and it seemed patrons could purchase tickets on arrival.

I haven't been to the top since I was a 10 year old in the 1970s, so it was fun to relive the experience. Great views from the top, and we also learned some history of the local area in the attached small museum. We had to alter our plans because the Monument had limited hours/just starting to re-open due to Covid/and off season ending. A bit expensive vs the time you spend at the attraction.

Beautiful way to appreciate the town and its history. Climbed to the top on a pretty day, wouldn’t do it at the heat of summer.

A MUST VISIT!
Aug 2020
For sure a MUST visit! I've been going to Ptown for about 25yrs and I'm sad to say I had never visited this museum. It was very informative of one of my favorite places to visit with lots of facts, photos, & artifacts. We also climbed to the top to get an AMAZING view of the entire tip of the cape. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
