What's really nice is that this tower has an elevator and climbing steps are not an option. The admission was $5 which might be a bit pricey, but the elevator operator was knowledgeable and provided some information on the monument. There are also panels on...More

This is a very interesting place to visit! For $3 you can go up in the monument by elevator and have a panoramic view of the area. The artifacts and history posted inside are very different than going to a museum- love the hanging cooking...More

I really enjoyed visiting the monument you're able to ride to the top by elevator. The elevator operator is very knowledgeable and tells you all about the monument as you're riding up. Once at the top you're able to spend as much time as you...More

On a visit to Bennigton we drove here on July 4. We went up the monument as a guide explained a bit of the history. From the top of the tallest structure in Bennigton we were able to see three states! Gorgeous view. We did...More

Besides the history of the battle, a ride to the top is a must. There is a fee though for the ride. Stunning views of the area can be seen for miles on a clear day.

The friendly elevator man tells some history on the way up and down. We had a clear day so the views were great, especially of the roadway leading up to the monument. An impressive structure that stands above the town and can be seen from...More

Nice view from the top. You get 2/3 the way up the monument by lift. It’s not possible to get higher, but you have a nice view, that is somewhat blocked by the pillars in front of the windows.

We had not heard of this monument but had to check it out. It is very big and tall, has an elevator to ride up. Pleasant staff there. $5 a person.

I love these type of things, so I can be biased. If your not interested is history, I would advise you to skip. The view isn’t the best, and it’s obstructed by the pillars. The exhibit at the bottom is ok. I just wish there...More
