  • It is unfortunate one is required to be chaperoned in order to gain access to the Adams crypt. If you want to skip the full tour you can try to catch the end of the tour when the crypt is shown. They do ask for a donation but it was not required. Once inside the crypt they do give you all the time you need to take photos and/or have a moment of silence. Besides having to wait until the end of the next tour to gain access to the crypt I enjoyed the experience.
  • Everything John Adams stands for screams America. Free America gave him the opportunities to do what he did In his life. He would be ashamed to not see a flag over his grave today. Put up the flag!!
  • Put up an American flag. Or stop advertising John Adams a founder of our nation. You are very unamerican.
  • Anti-Americans guarding a founding father! Put up the flag!!
  • The only reason I am giving this one star is because I can't give it zero stars. It is absolutely criminal that a private concern holds access to a national treasure such as 2 presidential graves and refuses to allow access to the graves unless money is given to the concern. I have been to every presidential grave in the country and every time I have asked if I can take a picture of the grave without taking the tour the answer has always been "yes." Not so with this place. I am glad I had already taken my picture a few years ago but when I went with my son this summer to show him the graves, they have imposed a required $4 fee and a 30 min tour. Absolutely criminal to highjack a national treasure with a required contribution to a supposed religious organization. Money hungry creeps.
