We particularly enjoyed the museum and learned something new in regards to the Pilgrims. I climbed to the top of the tower. It might seem to be a workout, but believe me, it's less strenuous than walking up the hill to the tower. Definitely worth...More

Was a nice climb to top on a combination ramps and stairs. I particularly liked that the monument had ventilation windows through out. Lovely view. April is a nice time to visit. Not to crowded, not to cold.More

In spite of the day being cloudy - we had great views. The climb up to the tower is easy since most of the way isn't stairs but ramps. Quite impressive !

The monument has wonderful views and is a relatively easy climb. Most of the climb is ramps with a few flights of stairs at the top and bottom.

Learned a lot about the monument and the history of Provincetown. Found some of the exhibits very interesting. If you are young you can walk to the top and get a fantastic view of the town.

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
