This monument is beautiful and set in a gorgeous residential neighborhood. Families were out walking around and children were playing in the commons. It is also close to the USS Constitution. We sat on the steps, read some info online and just took it in.

You definitely need to be in shape to climb the steps. It's also located on a good-sized mound. Talk with the rangers to get more out of your visit.

WOW!! I could feel the history here. After seeing this, I want to become an American Revolution war buff. I was late getting here, so the monument was closed to enter, but still had a tremendous sense of passion for the people who fought here....More

I am in decent shape but was doubting myself about halfway up. There is a sign at the bottom that says to climb slowly, and a lot of (mostly younger) people ignored that. It was definitely worth the effort for the view, but a few...More

The 300 steps up to the top we’re tough, but worth it. The visitor center for the NPS across the street was worth a stop, the displays were helpful for perspective.

I recommend taking the Ranger guided tour of the battlefield. It is a manageable walking tour of 45 minutes. The rangers are knowledgeable and use maps to help understanding of event that led up to the battle along with the aftermath.

While the monument is impressive, what made the visit was the free 45 minute guided tour with a Park Ranger. His knowledge of the history of the battle was phenomenal and he was funny and engaging. The tours run throughout the day so well worth...More

Didn't have enough time to explore properly but Charlestown area was a beautiful residential area, the homes lovely. Bunker Hill monument was informative.

Having stayed in the area a couple of times we finally found the time to enter and climb the 294 steps to the top of this simple and elegant monument. The point of the climb is really for the view so choose your day, there...More

Charlestown’s hilly roads, narrow streets and gaslight
lamps, make it an enticing neighborhood to visit.
Follow the Freedom Trail over the Washington St bridge
from the North End or take the scenic water locks to
Paul Revere Park. Walk through City Square and stroll
down cute Main street, wandering up the windy
residential streets to Monument Square, where you can
learn about the city’s history along with a great view

Can go up and down and see most of what you want to see in an hour or so. If grabbing lunch or something I'd say 1-2 hours max
