Enjoyed reading up on the history and walked to the top of the tower but the foggy day limited the views. Glad we stopped and the staff was very nice. Its worth the time to check it out.

By the time I got around to visiting the monument, I was too exhausted to climb the stairs to the top. It is an uphill walk from Bradford just to the parking lot. The museum gave a great history of P'town. The view from the bottom of the monument was great, so I can imagine what the view from the top was like.

We started our visit by walking to the top of the monument and the views were stunning! Other than the screaming kids inside the monument we had a great time! After the monument we spent about an hour in the museum, and we had no idea that it was so big. The displays were put together nicely, and it was a great walk through history- would recommend going for anyone!

Quite a few steps to the top, but the great view compensate well for it.
The accompanying museum has some good films and items to explain early settlers history.

Our family loved the Pilgrim Monument and the amazing views from the top! It was fun to walk to the top which was easy for the kids but a slower go for mom and dad! Just pace yourself and you'll be fine. We had one child chicken out because she was afraid of heights.

There was a wonderful show in the gallery with interesting artifacts from coastal New England!

A must do whe your in PTown! The parking lot costs $10 but you receive a free adult ticket to the monument. You canpark all day and its an Easy walk down to town.
