Great museum! Reasonable admission price. The monument itself is easy to climb, gorgeous views, I loved the wind pouring through the openings. I would definitely return!

Love this place. The walk up is easier than most towers because a lot of it is inclines and landings vs stairs. The breeze at the top is heavenly. Unfortunately, some annoying person was flying a buzzing drone close to the top of the monument...More

The steps and ramps to the top were not bad at all. I thought it would be exhausting, but it really wasn't and the view is incredible. I also enjoyed the little park down off Bradford street (I think) at the base of the property....More

Not a bad hike up to the top at all. Great views of the area and gives you a nice prospective and a break from the beach if necessary.

This was a fun way to kill an hour, get a different view of PTown from atop the monument, and learn more about the Pilgrims. Price includes the monument and museum and can't be split up - so be aware if you don't plan to...More

The family climbed 100+ stairs to get to the top of this tower. The view from the top was wonderful. This offers a great history lesson

If you like history or a good view of Provincetown then you will enjoy the monument. It's quite the climb but the view is good from all sides. If you're unfamiliar with the monument it's there to commemorate where the Pilgrims actually landed first.

The climb is mostly ramps (about 3 floors of stairs out of 20 floors total) making it very accessible. Passages are wide in comparison to other tower climbs, so slower groups can move to the side to rest and allow others to pass. The view...More

I'm not sure where the ferry comes in but my husband & I both feel it must be. P town is not large at all. Of course this is assuming you are in shape to walk several blocks with no effort.

It will probably take you about 20 minutes to walk from the Monument to the ferry for Long Point. Have fun!

Parking included one entry, not that expensive but well worth it. I think Peking was $15. Admission $12
