Visited the Adams House in April 2015. Tickets were $8, very reasonable for such a thorough tour. The house really is a must see, with a majority of original fixtures and furniture...tour guide was very knowledgeable about the items and history of the home. You won't be disappointed!!!

This place was absolutely awesome. The history and woodwork of this place is incredible. Its definitely worth the $8.00 per person. The only downside was it seemed our tour guide seemed like he had a place to go and the tour was a bit rushed. He was extremely knowledgeable and answered all of our questions but like I said it...

Beautiful from the outside but they weren't open and we couldn't go in. We walked up from the hotel and i'm glad we did because there was an Easter egg hunt at the library and cars were parked everywhere.

If you are in Deadwood and are not interested in the gambling there is so much history to take in. The Adams House is a wonderful attraction that gives you some of the history of Deadwood. Taking the tour of the house was wonderful and so beautiful! Don't miss it!

We enjoyed our visit here and the guide was fantastic!!! There was so much personal history of the family, the home and the town. This visit was well worth the admission which was quite reasonable and you will learn much more visiting this home than you do going through the town museum. Definitely a must see !!!

This is a well put together tour and exhibit and the tour guide was awesome. I just didn't get too interested in the culture of the family. It was very interesting to hear about how they came to town and became very engrained entrepreneurs in Deadwood. Worth a stop, but one was plenty for me.

As a history buff this was a great place to take a tour, located in the town of Deadwood SD, a stroll through the Adams house built in 1892 is a stroll through history.

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!

Thank you for your excellent review of the Adams House. I wish you could take photos inside of the house, but the flash damages the artifacts and fabrics. Our gift shop manager is working to create a nice assortment of postcards and photographs to sell in the store. More

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.
