The monument was a good choice for a Sunday in Bennington since many of the shops on Main Street were closed. We were disappointed we couldn't take the stairs, but the elevator operator Alan was so knowledgeable we quickly got over it. Great views from up top. The gift shop had plenty to choose from if you wanted to spend... More

Made this stop as we were heading from new York to New Hampshire. For $5 a person you got to learn a little history, take a picture of the tallest structure in VT, ride an elevator to the top, and take in some views from the top of monument. Monument made for a good 45 minute stop along our trip.

If you're a history buff, you must check this out. If you're not, go for the scenery. You can ride to the top on an elevator for $5 , and the views are incredible!

The monument is much bigger than we imagined and emotionally moving. It is placed in a beautiful neighborhood where some of the homes have signage identifying the officers who once inhabited them and the year in which it was erected.

My husband and I made a quick stop to the monument on our way through Bennington. Everyone working there was kind and knowledgeable. The exhibits at the bottom of the monument were concise and helped us understanding the Battle of Bennington, the efforts to build the monument and the monument itself. The views were great (and the day was beautiful,... More

We didn't go up in the elevator. We arrived late and a thunderstorm was approaching. We just visited the gift shop and walked around the monument. People were friendly. We will return.

Drove up to see this monument and was impressed. The entire area is worth cruising around and taking the elevator to the top is worth it.
