Event Description

The stair tower is about 130 feet from its base to the top (approximately 13 stories), so be prepared to get your cardio in for the day! We strongly recommend close-toed shoes with good tread–the Monument’s 227 steps have been climbed by countless visitors over the last 200 years, which has worn them in places. They are perfectly safe, but please take your time.


Each group of 5 is allotted 20 minutes to make your entire trip. We estimate it takes between 3-5 minutes to make the climb to the top. While there, you can catch your breath, look around and take photos, and then make your way back down. A staff member in the gallery will use an intercom at the top to let you know if you are nearing the end of your time.


If you have a heart or respiratory conditions, or are sensitive to close spaces, the tower climb is not recommended. However, the touchscreens in the gallery stream live feeds of the view from the top, so you can share in your companion’s experience!  Children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult.


Please note: No refund or exchanges.
