They normally charge a entrance fee of $12 to enter the Pilgrim Monument, but we lucked out because the fee was waived when we visited because of a class being held in the museum. The museum had an interesting collection of items highlighting the history...More

Stunning monument and nice climb to see the view from the top. The museum was informative. I do think it’s a bit over priced for the experience, but is still worth doing.

group #4 with wheelchair user. Fabulous views, historic detail... We decided not to make the climb up the steps to the museum due to wheelchair user.

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!
