We spent an hour walking up the stairs and ramps to Pilgrim Monument and walking around on the observation desk. On a clear day (as we had) you can see all the way to Boston. This replica of the Siena Tower in Italy is beautiful....More

My fiancé and I walked to the monument from the Surfside Inn and Suites. We were fascinated by all of the history surrounding Provincetown and the museum was very informative. The climb to the top wasn't difficult as it's mostly ramps and it was well...More

Decent width stairs with frequent landings when climbing the tower. An easier climb than what you will find in some lighthouses. There is a museum included in the admission, but I didn't get a chance to visit the museum because of time constraints. I really...More

While in Provincetown, we walked over to the tall Pilgrim Monument and read the accompanying plaque. We did not visit the museum. Nothing spectacular about it. It was not open to walk to the top when we were there.

I had a lot of fun here. The monument is definitely an intimidating climb, but the fact that ramps make up much of the climb sure make it easier. I'm certainly not in great shape but was able to complete the climb without many breaks....More

The staff in the museum were SO awesome. They were friendly and fun. This in itself made the experience enjoyable. The climb to the top isn't too bad because it's all just a gentle slope of ramps instead of stairs. There's a beautiful view at...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
