Nice park / statue. Take the time to read the various inscriptions and note the smaller reliefs built into the sides of the 'sitting' statues that are part of the bigger one.

This monument was huge and so beautiful to see.. especially around sunset time! The detail and meaning behind each section of the statue was inspiring!

This whopping 25-metre tall monument was built in 1889 to honour the four ideals set out by the Mayflower Pilgrims - morality, law, education and liberty. Each side has a statue incorporating each ideal. It is an imposing monument worthy of those pilgrim forefathers.

This monument is really surprising in its size and intensity. We were blown away by the history it describes and highly recommend a visit to it.

The National Monument to the Forefathers sits atop a hill above Plymouth. What's most important, especially to American history buffs, is the story behind the monument and hardships our forefathers had to bear during the early days of America. Well worth the time to visit.

Big monument. I didn't get out of the car. Others walked up and looked around. The panels around the figure are worn. Best use of this would be after driving a long time, stopping and letting the kids run around and spend pent up energy.

Just come to Plymouth, visit the visitors center. You can see the monument just by walking to it. Easy distance. Or, there are trolley tours that will take you to the highlights of Plymouth. Very inexpensive!
