There are no scheduled tours, but visitors can request a tour through the Pilgrim Memorial State Park during June, July, and August.

Groups can also apply for a special permit to use the area for events such as concerts, charity events, or plays. The Gurnet Theater Project will be hosting a play at the monument in August. There are no other posted events taking place at the monument.

The monument is controlled by the state through the Department of Conservation and Recreation, which controls parks and historical sites across Massachusetts. Town Hall had no knowledge of the monument being closed.

The park supervisor, Glen Homes, could not be reached for comment.

The monument is dedicated to one of Duxbury’s founders, Captain Standish. It took 26 years to build and was completed in 1898. At 116 ft., the top of the monument offers views of Duxbury Beach, and Plymouth harbor. When the monument is open, it is a 125-step climb to the top.
