Adamson House Museum, Malibu

4.6
Dubbed the "Taj Mahal of Tile" for its intricate ceramic designs, Adamson House Museum boasts a house, museum, and gardens. Part of a state park, the grounds remain as enticing as the house and museum. Walk through the gardens, visit the 1930s home, and see its famous ceramic tilework. The house was originally designed in the Mediterranean Revival style, and has since been listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Explore this California landmark through a guided tour and discover the history of Malibu at the adjacent museum.

  • Awesome historical museum. Ocean front views are breath taking. Perfect for a wedding.
  • It is beautiful it overseees a small beach/lagoon
  • I was able to roam around the immaculate grounds of this place without bother or judgment. During this time I executed a series of amazing jumpkicks off the various ledges and terrain points available to me during this time. The entire beach full of onlookers watched in amazement as I must have looked a spitting image to the great J. C. V. D (Jean Claude Vann Damme)
  • Love this place. A fantastic place to take a quiet walk. Perfect view from the grounds of the iconic Malibu Pier.
  • Found this house while walking. The setting is just beautiful, the gardens have stunning views of Malibu and the house is gorgeous with the historic tiles from the local area.
