Part of the Freedom trail. Very thought provoking, to stand where this battle happened. Sit on a bench and contemplate.

Didn't have time to climb up so just saw the exteriror. The museum at the bottom of the grass area is good and explains the battle. One of the few free things in Boston, so double points

We walked the Freedom from start to finish and this was our last stop. I think because we had walked already so much, the climb up the monument was exhausting! Even though it was extremely tiring it was totally worth it when we made it...More

This very interesting site offers free access to the fine views of Boston at the top, plus the nearby interpretation centre puts the location into its historic context. Very much recommended.

EXCELLENT. Make sure to visit the museum across the street and the venture down to the Warren Tavern for more history, and good food.

The neighborhood is nice and the views from the tower are cool. However, it just didn’t feel like something that needs to be on a must-do-if-you’re-in-Boston list.

This is a must see in Boston. You can climb the monument at no charge. The tickets are across the street in the visitor center/ museum.

Ok. I consider myself to be in decent shape. I walk and exercise regularly. However, this 294 stair climb left me sore for DAYS! The "I can barely move my legs to go up and down a curb and get in and out of bed"...More

Commemorating the eponymous battle, atop Bunker Hill, is a an obelisk. It's free to climb, although tickets must be obtained from the (interesting and informative) visitors' centre in the square below. The hill is a good place to sit and rest after the climb and...More

If you need a good workout, climb to the top! Really good views earned after getting your heart rate up. Great museum across the street that details the battle that occurred on the site.

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
