The Bunker Hill Monument reminds me of a scaled down version of the Washington Monument in DC. I had to climb the 294 steps but I was required to stop about 4 times, warning - it's pretty steep, took me a few minutes to get...More

I finally stayed on the tourist bus all the way around and I found this stop one of the most interesting. The staff here tells the history, even had a demonstration of the old guns. The tower was not open due to when hot outside...More

Visited as part of self-guided section of Freedom Trail. Set up in historic Charlestown. Part of historic park system, rangers can answer questions. Excellent view from top of monument. Getting to top is an excellent workout!

Great views, if you can manage the climb up the steps & an added bonus that entry is free. Friendly & informative staff.

The monument has a narrow spiral staircase of 294 steps. Two people can pass but it is tight. And once you are at the top the room may hold 15 people to look out the 4 small windows. We made it to the top with...More

Learn about history and climb the staircase for a spectacular view of Boston. Well worth the effort but take water with you!

We visited this on a very hot day so the actually steps to go up the monument weren't open but it was still a very ihteresting visit with lots of information.

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
