Not a lot to see in Musuem. But if the weather is good and you fancy lots of exercise the monument is worth a visit for the views from top.

A series of steps and ramps takes one to an absolutely spectacular view of the Cape and Provincetown. Easy coming down, got a little out of breath going up but it was definitely worth the effort to get to the top and snap some pictures....More

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
