  • 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.
  • Ask for Rob. He is dressed most time as Commodore Perry. Very informative.
  • Super interesting, will go back next year when we can go up to .top
