Visited this monument several times - a true historic site of important historical significance especially in the realm of religion - why? Because the Pilgrims helped spread the name of the true God Jehovah to the western hemisphere- go check it out!

There is a parking lot and circular drive around the monument. We enjoyed watching a youtube video about the monument before going and loved being up there in the evening with the sunset.

We happened to find this monument because it was listed as number one in the Plymouth things to do. We're glad we took time to find and visit it. The monument is HUGE, beautiful, and inspiring. At 81 feet tall, it is supposedly the world's...More

Wow this is a heck of a monument! I could not get over the size of this statue. It is very beautiful and I personally am happy to see our forefathers get the acknowledgment they deserve.

Nice park / statue. Take the time to read the various inscriptions and note the smaller reliefs built into the sides of the 'sitting' statues that are part of the bigger one.

This monument was huge and so beautiful to see.. especially around sunset time! The detail and meaning behind each section of the statue was inspiring!

This whopping 25-metre tall monument was built in 1889 to honour the four ideals set out by the Mayflower Pilgrims - morality, law, education and liberty. Each side has a statue incorporating each ideal. It is an imposing monument worthy of those pilgrim forefathers.

Just come to Plymouth, visit the visitors center. You can see the monument just by walking to it. Easy distance. Or, there are trolley tours that will take you to the highlights of Plymouth. Very inexpensive!
