Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum is a wonderful place for visitors of all ages to visit. Climb the 252-foot tower to the top only to be rewarded with the most spectacular views of Cape Cod. On clear days, Plymouth and the Boston skyline can be seen. The walk up the top is a series of 60 inclined ramps and 116 steps. The Pilgrim Monument is the highest point on Cape Cod. It was built from 1907-1910. The cornerstone was dedicated by President Theodore Roosevelt and the final dedication was made by President William Taft. The Monument is a commemoration to the landing of the Mayflower Pilgrims in 1620 in Provincetown where they stayed for five weeks and wrote the Mayflower Compact. The Provincetown Museum, at the foot of the Monument grounds focuses on Provincetown and local history. Exhibits include life-size captain's quarters recreations as well as a model of the Mayflower, and the history of the building of the Monument. This is a unique museum and memorable view that is not to be missed!
