This is a wonderful must see. The climb us easy even for one afraid of stairs and heights. It has few stairs and plenty of ramps. I love to visit light houses by rarely will I climb due to the close walls, but here that isn't the case. The view is wonderful. They have on the walls corner stones with... More

Nice museum that gives you a great view of the area . A bit of a walk to the top but not to hard with the ramp and stair combination.

I am familiar with this monument; I am familiar with the Outer Cape and I love it. The Cape is truly unique.

We had already parked downtown, so we walked up to the monument and paid to go in. We are in very good physical condition, so the stairs to the top of the monument were easy. It was a hot day. The view was excellent, and the museum was interesting and well appointed.

A fine museum as you enter and great views from the top make this a must stop in Provincetown. The climb isn't bad at all.

We climbed the Pilgrim Monument with our teenage daughters and friends. The climb was easier than expected and the view was incredible.

As you walk up the hill towards the plantation you can feel as though you are walking back in time. The "pilgrims" were very informative, fun and authentic. I was disappointed with the "Indians" They were more interested in continuing with their modern day conversation, than playing their part on the plantation.
