    Unfortunately, the monument was closed for repairs, but we really enjoyed the live musket demonstration and the historical displays in the information center. The folks who work there are wonderful!  more »

    Fantastic! A must see, even if you e seen it before! 13 feet taller than The Statue of Liberty's torch! Amazing views! Be advised to bring dollar bills for $3 State Park fee to take elevator to top, because they're often short on change due to high volume of visitors.

    Great on memorial day weekend. Fun display for the family, only downfall is the monument is under renovation :( so didn't get to go inside and climb to the top

    It was a clear when I visited, and the view was gorgeous. Put in Bay on the whole is a fun place to visit and has a multitude of activities for a family or group of friends.
