PMPM is considered one of the top three attractions in Provincetown on TripAdvisor, highly rated for its spectacular view and its charming history museum. The Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum sits at the top of the town and offers a spectacular panoramic view of Cape Cod. At 252 feet, the Monument is the tallest granite tower in the country and has been climbed by millions since its dedication in 1910. The Monument commemorates the first landing of the Mayflower Pilgrims in the New World in 1620. While in Provincetown Harbor, they created the historic Mayflower Compact, the first written document of a governing democracy, and explored the Cape before sailing on to Plymouth. The Museum presents the history of Provincetown including the Pilgrims' landing, daily life during the golden era of the fishing and whaling industries, and the founding of the American theater through the Provincetown Players. The Museum’s current special exhibition, FORGOTTEN PORT: Provincetown’s Whaling History reveals how whaling shaped Provincetown and how the town evolved from hunting whales to saving whales today.
