A little out of the way at the very end of the Freedom Trail but well worth it, cant miss it as its huge and just need to follow the red bricks. You can take some great selfies with this in the background or so...More

This obviously reminded me of the Washington Monument in DC, but like it's little brother. It is sticking out in the Boston skyline and brings character to this beautiful city.

Visited the Monument on a tourist trip to New England. As a student of history I was excited to visit a spot so important to our country. Though parking was limited...strictly street parking...we found a spot and walked up the hill, where we walked through...More

The monument is an easy, picturesque walk from The Constitution. It is free to the public and you are able to climb it. Unfortunately, we only made it part-way up due to it being a bit too strenuous for my 72 year old husband. Families...More

One of the best activities in Boston, and especially good for a solo afternoon. The views are excellent, and the climb is a serious one that gives you a well-earned sense of achievement at the top. Decent museum and visitor centre as well (from which...More

Imposing on top of the hill. Lovely monument. Not much to see besides the actual tower. The guy working there (sorry didn't catch his name) was amazing in explaining so much about the history of the place. I advise to climb the 294 steps all...More

Very tiring climbing all 294 steps to the top and then back down again! It was not busy so no problems on the narrow stairs! Nice views from the top. Jelly legs when you get back down to earth.

Came here at the end of the freedom trail. Was def worth it. Charlestown is very cute too. The monument is free entry (along with the museum over the road Which also has toilets). 294 steps is a lot but you do get a good...More

We did the Freedom Trail and this was our last stop. It was in a beautiful area but wasn’t one of our favorite attractions.

Charlestown’s hilly roads, narrow streets and gaslight
lamps, make it an enticing neighborhood to visit.
Follow the Freedom Trail over the Washington St bridge
from the North End or take the scenic water locks to
Paul Revere Park. Walk through City Square and stroll
down cute Main street, wandering up the windy
residential streets to Monument Square, where you can
learn about the city’s history along with a great view

Can go up and down and see most of what you want to see in an hour or so. If grabbing lunch or something I'd say 1-2 hours max
