  • Great view over Cape Cod. Must See. Also: if You Park up at the Monument You Pay $15 like in town BUT you get one ticket for the pilgrim monument free.
  • great museum. great view from top of tower it was nice how the stairs are mixed with constant ramps making it an easier climb
  • Best Parking when visiting Provincetown. Avoid all the rush. Nice clean place.
  • The best view in all of Cape Cod. Panoramic. Many stairs. Not for those out of shape. Otherwise worth every penny.
  • The views are absolutely amazing up here! You can see all of Provincetown and most of Truro. There's a small cottage at the bottom. The climb is mostly a series of ramps, with some stairs at the beginning and end, making this an easier climb.
