The view from the top of the tower was spectacular, well worth the climb (which was not that strenuous) and Boston was visible in the distance. The museum is well organized and very interesting. A "must see" while in Provincetown!

Five of us went up the Pilgrim Monument on a cold but bright, sunny day and got a great view of the Cape below. And although it was a but of a strain, we could make out the city of Boston in the distance.

It's a surprisingly high monument but a fairly easy climb. The information about it in the museum is interesting too.

One point to note: the sign outside the entrance says there are no toilets at the monument but there are - they are accessible once you pay and leave the museum building on your way to the tower entrance.

Both history and exercise all in one! Overlooks P-Town...great views from the top (if you have the stamina to climb it's steep, narrow, winding stairs.

Did you know that the Pilgrims on the Mayflower actually landed FIRST at Provincetown, MA -- in 1620? They stayed there for five weeks before moving on to Plymouth. It was at Provincetown that the Pilgrims wrote the Mayflower Compact. The Pilgrim Monument was erected (1907-1910) to commemorate the landing of the pilgrims. It is the tallest all-granite structure in the U.S. with a height of 352' above sea level. No elevators but 116 stairs and 60 ramps. If you make it to the top (I did!) there is a spectacular view of Provincetown and the lower part of Cape Cod. Magnificent!

very cool monument and museum. Great views over the town and harbor. Would highly suggest climbing to the top, totally worth it! The museum connected to it is very interesting as well. Some great artifacts and a nice story of the pilgrims first landing. The people working there are friendly and will gladly chat up their town. All in all a delightful experience
