  • The tour provides such a great story of relatively humble beginning to such prominence. Stone library is amazing, but the home housed generations of Adams. The place has this great history, but an almost lived in sense as well. Been to many historical sites. This is one of the best so far.
  • Parking at the President's galleria is free of visiting the Adams visitors center. Trolley will take you to the different sites for $10. This is also the only way to tour the inside of the houses.
  • the tour was very good. one of the best historical tours I've done. the stone library was the coolest part, unfortunately you spend the least amount of time there.
  • Limited but informative. Graciously hosted by docents who enjoy showing guests the property.
  • Great houses, all original to the Adams. Love the Library stone building.
