We visited the Adam's Museum during our December trip to Deadwood. Interesting tour and beautiful historic house. Would have liked to take photos inside the house but none the less still worth the visit!

Great if you love history the tour is for you... So amazing that two people found love here.... Sad that lived together for such a short time before one died and the other lived on without the other.

This is a Beautiful house. Take the tour it's pretty interesting. They also have a little gift shop where you buy the tour tickets. They do not allow to talk photos inside the house. However you can go to the Adams house museum which is pretty nice and you can take photos in there

It seems that they've put here everything they can find in the attics and the basements of Deadwood. I was not able to detect any specific organization in the mix either. And they hover all over you dead scared that you might sneak a photo (forbidden activity). Not worth it.

I am sorry to read that you felt the Adams House was a hodge podge. Photographs are not allowed at the Adams House museum to protect the integrity of its unique collections. Photos are allowed at the Adams Museum and Days of '76 Museum, but no flash photography. Thank you for your review. More

We weren't really sure what to expect with the Adams House. It turns out it has been through a number of owners and all have left some trace of their occupancy. The first two families are the most important and most of the house has been restored to what it was when they lived there. The guide explained the evolution... More

You have to see the Adam's House. It will take you back in time and to see what they had at that place and time is amazing. The price comparison is something out of this world too. It is suppose to be haunted but we never felt anything while we were there. It is a must see!

When you are in Deadwood area take the time to visit the Adams House. Drag yourself away from the main tourist traps to the Adams House and Mount Moriah which are the two truly exceptional things to visit in town. The House itself is a wonderful trapped in time tribute to a world gone by, to a life we don't... More
