Pilgrim Monument Hosts Magic Show for Kids, Free Museum Visit for All

The Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum hosts a free magic show for kids tomorrow at 1 PM. Along with this fun entertainment, families (and the rest of us, too) will be treated to free admission to the monument and to the museum as well. So plan to spend some time after the magic show exploring the exhibits in the museum. You'll find things like a scale model of the Mayflower, a diorama of the signing of the Mayflower Compact, a cut-away look into the quarters of a ship's captain of the 1700s and many more wonderful exhibits.
You'll also have a chance to climb to the top of the Pilgrim Monument, the tallest all-granite structure in the United States. Take your camera with you. The view over Provincetown Harbor and the surrounding area is terrific. On a clear day, from the top of the monument you can see for miles and miles in all directions. It takes the average person about ten minutes to climb to the top,  just over 252 feet above the top of the hill, and 350 feet above the harbor.
Take advantage of this chance for free admission to PMPM, and some good fun for the whole family. Walk up High Pole Hill or up Winslow Street, off of Bradford Street behind Town Hall, or find paid parking up Winslow Street at the base of the Pilgrim Monument.
