REVIEWS OF John Adams Birthplace - Adams National Historical Park IN Massachusetts

Mark Lundquist

Good history, but an uneventful place to visit. It's two houses on a busy corner without personnel

Cathi La Sota

First stop on the tour that departs Adams National Historic Park. Quick tour of both houses (where John and John Quincy were born). Houses aren't very big, and intentionally sparse, so don't expect too much.

Karin Nordlander

Interesting place.

Jason Barney

Fantastic! One of the highlights of my Boston visit and should not be overlooked, especially if you're into American history. You must take the tour if you want to see the inside of the houses. I read John Adams by David McCullough years ago, and this was almost like a pilgrimage for me. So much history here, and so many generations of the Adams family and two U.S. presidents lived in these homes. The stone library is simply a marvel. After the tour, head across the street to the United First Parrish Church and ask the guide to take you down below into the catacombs where John and Abigail Adams are entombed.

paul lazenby

Small humble house where our our 2nd president was born. There is a great tour offered by the NPS that takes you to several historic places worth seeing.

Paul Moffett

Really interesting time capsule of the early life of John Adams, and the tour guide was knowledgeable and engaging.

David Gilbert

Very interesting and our park ranger gave a wonderful tour

Great tour by the park service.

G Aquino

There are actually two homes here, the birthplaces of Presidents John Adams and John Quincy Adams. Visits are by guided tour only and start at the Visitors Center in downtown Quincy. There, you can buy tickets and wait for the trolley that takes you to this site and one other related site called Peacefield, which several generations of Adamses lived in. The guided tours are offered only between summer and early fall. If you like history, the tours are well worth the time and admission fees. Note that the houses are old but well preserved, though not air-conditioned so it can be toasty in there in the summer.

Sherri Dalton

One of the best historical tours I've taken. All of the tour guides are very knowledgeable about the Adams family as well as the homes. The little historical tidbits were fascinating.

Chris Hart

It's very confusing about how to access this. Don't come directly here, the tour starts somewhere else and you have to be in a group. It does look fantastic.

Drew Eddins

Elizabeth Brown

Julie Murphy

Very interesting & educational

Christine Hammersley

Good 2hr tour. Remember to get your tickets at the visitor center to board the trolley as there is no entry at the site without previously purchased tickets.

A great tour for someone who wants to know more about the other members of the family. Also great tidbits about colonial life and day to day life of the members of the Adams family. National Parks Service rangers were top notch and very knowledgable.

Truly a tribute to a great American who served his country at great personal cost. His wife Abigail stands as an equal to her husband, also. The National parks service people were very knowledgeable and quick to help. I would recommend this to anyone.

Beautiful final home. John's birth home and residence for Abigail was quite small and quaint. She had to be a very strong woman. The1870 Library is to die for! I could spend the rest of my life in there. Enjoy the history

So furnature inside

John Wallace

Interesting and unique, as with other National Parks. This one requires a trolly ride and doesn't have restrooms on the route.


Jeff Bravo

Outstanding historical tour. Recommended to any & all U.S. history buffs, as well as to anyone who desires more background on our Founding Fathers (and their noteworthy wives!). At least one of our guides—a uniformed U.S. National Parks Ranger—held a PhD in history, specifically on John Adams, so he was extremely knowledgeable. Every last ranger we interacted with was the consummate professional. What a thrill (and privilege) it was to walk thru the four buildings on the tour—three Adams family homes plus their freestanding family library—in the footsteps and most intimate spaces of two of our earliest presidents and their families. Educational too: inspired me to start watching the HBO miniseries “John Adams” for even more learning.

Jennifer Hart

No information at this site you have to do the whole tour and we were to late for that

Robert Orsini

Good tour overall

Derek Dambrosio

You need to go a mile away to 1250 Hancock Street Quincy to purchase your ticket before you go to the house

Ryan Spires

Diana Bailey-Kent

After reading David McCullough's book on John Adams I developed a burning desire to see his home(s). I was already predisposed to admire him after watching the movie based on the musical 1776 that showcases John Adams' tenacity in promoting independence. HBO's miniseries John Adams was fascinating. The world would be a better place if people were more civic-minded and less self-centered and needy. How fortunate his homes were not razed ... like John Hancock's.

Caitlin Fruzzetti

Amazing place they do great tours! There is a trolley from Adams National Historical Park that will take you there from Quincy Center for tours. Pretty cool place. I would recommend stopping by if not from the area.

K.M. Z

I took my kids there over the summer and I took my kids there a few months back to go check it out my youngest daughter wanted to learn a little bit more about history and some of the towns around where we live as she enjoyed it my oldest daughter wants to become an architect and she enjoy the design of the building even though it has been semi upgraded interior. It inspired me to go visit other places throughout Massachusetts for some of their school projects. You can say it's history coming to life.Thanks for reading

Madeline Tarte

stephen lee

daniel crawford

Awesome place. This is a guided tour and you need to meet downtown at the gift shop. The tour picks you up on trolly style bus and you spend 2 hours at several different buildings. No facilities after tour starts. Bring water, sunscreen and enjoy the experience as the knowledgeable staff talk about the house, family and politics of the Adams Family houses.

Seeing the two homes in their original setting and the historical details presented by the national park service ranger made the place alive.

Excellent presentations by each of the rangers at the various houses you will visit on the trolley tours. You start at the oldest home and travel to the next home and finish at the amazing library.
