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

Learn about history and climb the staircase for a spectacular view of Boston. Well worth the effort but take water with you!

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

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

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

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

Can go up and down and see most of what you want to see in an hour or so. If grabbing lunch or something I'd say 1-2 hours max
