Photographers must not miss this opportunity. This is the tallest granite structure in the United States. The walk up inside is 116 steps and 60 ramps. The design of the strutcure is similar to the Torre Del Mangia of Italy.President Theodore Roosevelt laid the corner stone in 1907.President William Taft led the dedication & completion ceremony in 1910. If you are in Providencetown you cannot miss this structure. Just walk towards it and pay a admision fee. The rest is up to you.

Well worth the climb! It's not even that strenuous. Stairs and ramps alternate, and you can take your time. Plus, it's a breeze coming down. The day we were there was clear, and we could actually see the Boston skyline!

Mueseum was well put together and very informative, with a nice range of exhibits beyond what you would expect. A little pricey for what I feel you get however. Monument was closed for rennovations when we attended.

Did not think I wanted to do the museum, but glad I did. Learned a lot about the history of the pilgrims landing first in Provincetown. The walk up the tour was worth the view! Beautiful.

dull, boring and too much of a trek. just was not my cup of tea. Maybe if you need something else to entertain the kids the taxidermied animals may fascinate.
