History buffs will get their money's worth. The Adam's estate is loaded with all original furnishings and very well narrated by U.S. Interior Dept. personnel. Set aside two hours to roam.

Excellent with everyone incredibly helpful from the National Park Service. See the new 4 generation Enduring Legacy film at the visitor center. Talent with various excellent actors such as Sam Goodyear who plays John Adams here as well as in the Adams, Abigail Adams, and Thmas Jefferson play. Voice overs by Tom Hanks, Laura Linney, Paul Giamatti, Edward James Olmos, and Edward Herrmann. Easy parking. Fun to walk around.

My husband and I enjoyed all three houses that are included on the tour. The park rangers were both very informative and polite. All of the furnishing in the main house were handed down. The only complaint was the tours were every hour instead of half-hour as advertised.

Firstly, we can't comment about parking as it was not required. Gift shop & visitors centre @ 1250 Hancock st was friendly and informative. Really good film show. Trolley to the houses was quick and easy from outside. Great guides to take you around the first two houses then another short trolley ride to the big house..... WOW! What treasures and detail to behold and the guide was again informative. Then short ride back... Absolutely worth the $5. Also when you've finished walk up to the gold domed church two minutes away, for a couple f dollars you will gain entry to the crypt where the two generations are buried and sit in the Adams family church pew!
