  • Super views over all of P-town and a great museum to visit! It is a little high to climb, but you will love it! 
  • Be prepared to walk and climb stairs. Excellent and informative museum. Views were outstanding at the top of the tower. 
  • We went up for the Monument Christmas Lighting. The museum was free for the evening so we also got to look around inside. What a view, I would highly recommend it to anyone in town.

  • Bello sitio donde el sitio se va volando !!! Playa, atraction, playas, sitios historicos, lights houses, walk in the sandy beach, restaurants, rent boat, stay in beautiful hotel, motel, rental home, bicicles path, the food, friendly people, whale watching etc etc etc. You just have to try, cause every time we go, it's something new we find and enioy. An believe me, not only Virginia it's for lovers, the Cape or PayPal twon like local call it give then a good race for the money, eh!
  • OMG It was worth the stairs! The incredible view is just amazing! The museum is very nice too... I liked how they have the history of the area, as well as the artist.
  • We didn't climb to the top of the tower because $15 per person is a little pricey. Although that does get you free parking for the day, which appears to be a hot commodity around Provincetown. $10 per person and free parking would have been more appropriate for this place.
  • Historic and very interesting. The museum is well laid out and quite informative. The monument, including the climb o the top, is unique and offers exceptional views.
  • Well the museum was interesting and the tower climbing a good sports lesson. The view was nice but its hard to make good photos.
