The monument's TALL. I'm surprised I could make the climb to the top, but I made it! Interesting to know that the pilgrims actually landed in Provincetown before going to Plymouth. Nice museum too. Made me fall in love with Provincetown. Expect the cool ocean...More

While we were not impressed by the town (trendy, commercialism) this monument was a jewel. The information provided and the views were spectacular. The museum was great too. The climb was easy since mostly it is ramps. Go, learn about the Pilgrim's landing and see...More

Sadly, when we got there, the monument was closed for the day. We did get out a read the various placards outside and took some great shots.

I wasn’t able to climb it. Just did the picture thing. Very impressive & a must do when you are in P-town. Great historical piece of architecture. Also will be great if you’re counting your steps.

Over 400' high it's the tallest all granite structure in North America. You can walk all the way to the top. If it's a rainy day there's a great museum at the bottom to tell you all about Provincetown and its history.

I enjoy walking to the top of the monument several times a year and the museum is quite full of interesting facts and displays. It is THE landmark of Provincetown, in my humble opinion, and, as such, a must see! I do believe it is...More

No place to check in a backpack but as it's a reasonably gentle grade with plenty of waiting places as you go it, provided its not too big it should be no problem.
