The monument was definitely worth spending an hour or so touring. There is free parking around the base, then you go in to the small gift shop to pay $5 & get your wristbands. It is a short walk across the lawn to the monument & in to the elevator with a guide who is very friendly & knowledgeable. You... More

Nice to get some scenic views but a little disappointed we were not at the top and had to look out narrow windows so we could only see 'slivers' of landscape.

I liked seeing the monument from the ground. It's shorter than the Washington Monument, and the Bunker Hill Monument.

This was a great experience. The story surrounding the battle and the impact on the outcome of the revolutionary war is moving and this monument suitably commemorates the battle and the men who fought it. The views from top of the monument are worth the small admission charge. The story of the construction is intriguing and worth the few minutes... More

This was 3 hours out of our way, but we really wanted to check it out. I'm glad we did. The Grounds are awesome with Revolutionary statues and a quaint gift shop. We paid the 5 bucks to take the elevator to the top. Totally worth it. Great views of the Green Mountains. The elevator operator was friendly too. This... More

The monument park was very well kept and easy to get to. Unfortunately we got there just a little after 5:00 and were not able to go inside. Bring some OFF spray because we were hounded by huge mosquitos while we were there, but otherwise we enjoyed the visit.

We visited the Bennington Battle Monument while visiting Vermont. The monument is Beautiful and has an elevator which takes you 200' up to an observation deck. The Elevator operator was very nice and knowledgeable about the history of the battle and the Monument. There is a small history museum on the bottom floor which describes the battle and construction of... More
