We had the place all to ourselves as it a bit off the regular tourist path (along the sea front), however, the monument is an impressive and well worth a visit if passing through.

While we were in Plymouth, we stopped to see the Monument to our Forefathers. There is another in Provincetown, MA worth seeing. It was important to us to visit the place where our forefathers came to start a new life in a new country.

I visited in October 2016 on my way out to the cape. I was looking for quick, interesting, and scenic stops. I'm glad I chose this as one. It's really an impressive statue or group of statues. It's free and a little tricky to find...More

This was a great piece of history. We did this with the tour from the Jenney Museum. They had so much knowledge on everything we saw. So it was great to do this with tour so we got a better understanding of it.

The monument is impressive by itself, but we found that the story behind the images was better understood with the tour by Leo the Miller from the Jenney Museum. We were surprised that this monument wasn't something that we were familiar with before our visit....More

This is a rather large monument, that few people know about. If you are in Plymouth to see the rock and plantation, take a few minutes and check out this monument.

This impressive hunk of granite is often missed by the hundreds of thousands of visitors who descend upon Plymouth annually. Just 2 blocks up and 3 blocks over from Plymouth Rock Faith, (the lady atop the Statue) is well worth a visit. With Mayflower II...More

This statue is amazing, it is tucked away in a small unassuming park in a lazy neighborhood in Plymouth MA. the picture doesn't do it justice, the carving and details are great and it is huge! Much better visit than the very disappointing Plymouth Rock....More

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!
