We decided to pop in and see the tombs only to find there is a guided tour which takes about half an hour. There is no fee but they do ask for a small donation, which we gladly paid. Our guide was so ... read more »

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.

Be sure to ask about taking the tour. Amazing history here.
The tour was excellent.
What an amazing and historic church, the only one in the country with two presidents buried there. John Quincy Adams attended services there, his father attended services in the previous edifice, when the minister was none other than Rev John Hancock, the father of patriot John Hancock. They are open for guided tours every day in the summer season. Well worth a visit, especially if you loved the movies about the Adams family.
We're proud to be a part of this congregation. The religious exploration group has a great Director, committee and teachers. The children and youth are really involved and bring lots of energy and wisdom to services and congregational life.
