We walked around the grounds and enjoyed it. The facilities are closed from Nov 11 to April, which is the only disappointment.
I have been 3 times and learned something new about one of The Adams each time. The house and separate stone library are both a must see. It is a popular spot so plan your trip for a weekday if possible.
Mother-in-law is a history buff and a fan of the "John Adams" HBO mini series, so the Adams NHP was definitely on our itinerary for our Boston trip. Of the NHP locations we visited in greater Boston, this one was the best maintained in my opinion. The tours of the houses were informative. The ranger at Peacefield did an especially... More
I am very pleased that National Park Service is taking care of such lovely places beautifully.

The interstate signage to the visitor center in downtown Quincy is small, requires quick turns in heavy traffic and totally inadequate. The visitor center was closed on Sunday PM but we visited the "Old House" and found the one hour tour of... More
We really enjoyed our morning at the Adams NHP, and the courteous and engaging park rangers made it all the more a positive experience.
We really enjoyed our visit, but we almost gave up trying to find it. I'm glad we persisted. Make sure you know where Saville Avenue is, for the parking garage right near the Visitor's Center.
