With a bloody face-to-face combat history and orders of, "Don't fire 'til you see the white's of their eyes!' we were very disappointed we couldn't walk over 200' to the top the day we visited.because a fierce rain storm with high winds was predicted. It's...More

This is a not to big monument in a hill in between a residential area. The people that work here are very friendly, willing to answer any question about the monument. Sadly during our visit because of weather conditions, we couldn't get into the tower.

Massive monument! We climbed the 294 steps with no problems. The spiral staircase is indeed narrow, and it is warm inside the monument. Great view at the top. Bring some bottled water with you. We visited in August and were told we didn't need a...More

I had no idea about the history of the Bumker Hill monument or how it inspired the Washington monument. If you are in the Boston area this is worth a visit. The tour is free. I recommend 2-4 hours for the visit.

It is okay. It was too hot to allow people to walk to the top so the monument was closed. There are some maps and a few educational pieces on the walls of the park house. Park rangers will answer questions and are friendly.

We only visited the grounds as none of us wanted to climb the steps to the top of the monument. Quite impressive.

It's a historic monument located in Boston. I recommend using the bus to get here, there isn't a lot of parking. The hill has the monument, but there is a museum across the street. Freedom Trail start/ends at the Bunker Hill Memorial.The Bunker Hill Monument...More

Don't do this if you can't climb a bunch or stairs, but if you can the view is great and so is the history.

Visited Bunker Hill at 8.45 a.m. but was disappointed to discover that it doesn’t open until 10.00 a.m. (this can change if there are adverse weather conditions). Nonetheless, the grounds themselves provide information points at which you can read about the Battle at Bunker Hill....More

Climb to the top, but take your time doing it. Steep stairs lead to an awesome view at the top. Don't let your teenager be the leader of the pack!

Charlestown
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
