About Bunker Hill Monument:
Wondering What to do in Boston? Consider visiting some of the many Boston Attractions that were important before and during the Revolution. The Revolutionary War inspired many famous sayings. Most school children have heard “The Redcoats are coming!” and “Don't fire until you see the whites of their eyes!" The latter saying was uttered during the battle that is commemorated by the Bunker Hill Monument.
The first monument at this site, which actually sits on Breed’s Hill, was built in 1794 and was one of the first monuments in the country. The current Bunker Hill Monument stands 221 feet tall, and the interior features 294 steps.
This Boston Attraction is free and open to the public. Visitors are welcome to climb the steps to the top (there is no elevator!) and to visit the Bunker Hill Museum which sits right across the street. You’ll learn about the battle that took place here, and what the outcome meant to the war.
