Definitely walk the steps up to see the view. Your legs will be jello for the rest of the day, but it's worth it.

We didn't have time to stop and visit but had no problem seeing the monument from far away. We almost couldn't avoid it as we went to many of the other sights around.

Very well kept monument and has a great view over the city. The cobbled streets on the way to the monument were very quaint and full of character.

Monument for the first main battle during the Revolutionary war. There are 294 steps to the top, recommend visiting during the early morning, or possibly later in the afternoon - the stairway gets narrow at the top. For a more relaxed approach, take the 93...More

The site of the bloodiest battle in the Revolution, the big attraction here, frankly, is climbing the monument - all 294 steps up and back down. It can be accomplished in a few minutes, but will be a struggle if you are out of shape...More

The Bunker Hill Museum was one of my favorite historic sites in Boston. I think many may miss the museum – it is not that well signed. For me, I had forgotten much about the details of the revolution. This museum provided excellent story boards...More

The Bunket Hill Monument is one of the last stops along the Freedom Trail. The monument is huge and you can actually climb the approximately 300 steps to the top of you pick up a ticket from the museum.

The freedom trail walk all the way to bunker hill monument is Amazing! Across the street from the giant monument is the museum/restrooms and exhibits. You could spend an hour inside the museum. You have to buy tickets to climb the monument. There's no food...More

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
