Good spot to bring the kids, climb up the numerous flights of stairs- enjoy the panoramic views of Provincetown and gets some good physical activity in for the day. Love getting some ice cream afterwards.

Visited the museum and monument which are both interesting and considering the limited options a great place to visit while in Provincetown. Exhibits are a little old but somewhat interesting. Only takes about 1/2 hour to see the entire museum. Walk to top of monument...More

This is a fun tower to climb in order to see a panoramic view of the P-town area. $12 entry fee per person over aged 13. Museum is informative and interesting local info.

You can't miss the giant granite monument that towers over Provincetown, MA. So why not climb it?!?! The impressiveness of the tower is a 5, and the price is a 3... so I'm giving this 4 stars. While the museum has some highlights, such as...More

I might not do this in the middle of summer, but the crisp fall weather provided the ideal temperature to climb up the monument...which is what I’m estimating somewhere between 20-25 stories tall. Do it if you’re in town! The view is spectacular! If you’re...More

It is worth the walk 2 the top for the beautiful views. We visited Ptown and took a drive 2 the monument as well. You can see out pretty far over the ocean from the top.

If you haven't checked this out, you should. The museum is interesting and diverse. The monument walk is easily worth it, when you see the expansive views from the top. If you're looking for a deal, it's a good place to park your car for...More

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
