Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum

Climb up the most famous symbol of Provincetown - Pilgrim Monument. The 252-feet, giant granite structure commemorates the first landing of the Mayflower Pilgrims in 1620 in Provincetown Harbor in 1620. The Pilgrims wrote the Mayflower Compact, the first written declaration of a democratic commonwealth in the New World. Climb up the monument and take in breathtaking 360-degree views. 

The Provincetown Museum offers fascinating exhibits that highlight the arrival of the Mayflower Pilgrims, the town's rich maritime history, the early days of modern American theater in Provincetown, and the building of the monument. See a recreation of a 19th century sea captain's parlor, a diorama of the Mayflower Compact being signed aboard the Mayflower, and a scale model of the first theater of the Provincetown Players.
