We toured the Adams House during a paranormal investigation and tour. We can't wait to go back and do it again!

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

After thinking Deadwood was just a town of casinos, we found this treasure. A docent led the tour and had great stories to tell about the house and owner. There might even be a ghost!

The Adams House is a neat glimpse into an earlier time, with many original fixtures, furniture, and finishes. Replicas of original items are wonderfully done. The house was quite ahead of its time, and was built with electricity in mind. The stories accompanying some of the items in the house are fascinating. Some of the areas are completely blocked off...

Very fascinating to see how people in the area lived in the early 1900's even though they weren't what you would call "regular" people, they were extremely wealthy! We really enjoyed this tour and would recommend it to everyone who visits Deadwood!

After being overwhelmed by the casinos the night before, it was great to tour the museum and really get a sense of the history of deadwood. Really well laid out, information and totally affordable. Probably the best museum we visited in the Black Hills.
