The monument has a narrow spiral staircase of 294 steps. Two people can pass but it is tight. And once you are at the top the room may hold 15 people to look out the 4 small windows. We made it to the top with...More
Visited the Bunker Hill Monument. Definitely worth stopping by to see it, if you love US Revolutionary war history as it is a very historic spot.
This was the first public obelisk (built prior to the Washington monument in DC) in the US and designated...More
Very disappointed in this site. We coldn't climb to the top of the monument due to the heat (expected for safety).
The museum was...vanilla. There was little there to attract interest and nothing about the significant battle that happened there.

This Monument reminds me of the Washington Monument in DC and commemorates the first major battles of the Revolutionary War. You can climb all 294 steps to the top. Bring water with you, and note that there's not a lot of air in the monument,...More
Bunker Hill is at the end of the Freedom Trail Walk and worth a visit.
The monument is a smaller version to the Washington monument. This one has 294 steps that you can climb although the spiral staircase is very narrow and steep.
The 294 stairs up were fun. I was stuck behind stuck behind someone with the lungs of an asthmatic ant, so there were plenty of breaks. Top of the tower gives great views if you can get to a window. It is very tight at...More
With a bloody face-to-face combat history and orders of, "Don't fire 'til you see the white's of their eyes!' we were very disappointed we couldn't walk over 200' to the top the day we visited.because a fierce rain storm with high winds was predicted. It's...More
This is a not to big monument in a hill in between a residential area. The people that work here are very friendly, willing to answer any question about the monument.
Sadly during our visit because of weather conditions, we couldn't get into the tower.
Charlestown’s hilly roads, narrow streets and gaslight lamps, make it an enticing neighborhood to visit. Follow the Freedom Trail over the Washington St bridge from the North End or take the scenic water locks to Paul Revere Park. Walk through City Square and stroll down cute Main street, wandering up the windy residential streets to Monument Square, where you can learn about the city’s history along with a great view
of Boston at the Bunker Hill Monument. While it’s not a huge area, there are some excellent restaurants. Find your way to the Charlestown Navy Yard, which is a developing area with lots of condos and an additional site for Massachusetts General Hospital research centers. Here you will also find the USS Constitution Museum. After you’re done, hop on an MBTA ferry at the dock on Baxter street and zip on over to Long Wharf and the New England Aquarium.
