Adams National Park in Quincy added to the Museum Pass Program

The National Parks Service has kindly provided us with 4 separate family museum passes to the Adams National Park in Quincy, MA, each of which provides free admission for up to 4 people. The Adams National Park is a historic gem right in our own backyard!

The park is comprised of 13 acres, 11 buildings and a collection comprising approximately 100,000 objects including original furnishings, books, archival materials and archeology donated by the family in 1946.

Adams National Historical Park tells the story of four generations of the Adams family (from 1720 to 1927). The park has three sites: (1) The Visitor Center, (2) the Birthplaces of 2nd U.S. President John Adams and 6th U.S. President John Quincy Adams, and (3) Peacefield including the “Old House,” home to four generations of the Adams family and the Stone Library which contains more than 12,000 historic volumes.  Free trolley transportation to the historic houses is provided.

The Park advises that all tours begin at the Visitor Center which is located at 1250 Hancock Street in the Presidents Place Galleria. Site orientation is available at the Visitor Center, as well as exhibits, a bookstore and public restrooms. Parking is offered in the Presidents Place Parking Garage accessed via Saville Avenue. (Please see travel directions.) Guided, full-park tours, including the Birthplaces and the Old House, depart daily. Tours last approximately 2 hours.

This pass is valid for the entrance fee and trolley.  The Adams National Historical Park is open seven days a week through November 10th.  Passes may be checked out at the Norwell Library Circulation Desk the day before with your library card.  We recommend that you check with the museum to confirm hours as our website and/or pass may not have the current information.  Please return pass to the Library the day of use. Other patrons may be waiting to use it. Thank you.

To make a reservation, go to the Museum Pass reservation section of the Norwell Public Library website to reserve a pass.


The Friends of the Norwell Public Library is a non-profit group of volunteers who work together to raise funds for and give financial assistance to the Norwell Public Library so that it may improve its services, resources, and role in the community.

    I just used the new Adams Historic Park museum pass and it was a thoroughly enjoyable tour. It even includes free validated parking at the garage next door.
