Fees & Reservations

Fee Free Days at Adams National Historical Park for 2017:

*Fee waiver includes: entrance fees, commercial tour fees, and transportation entrance fees. Other fees such as reservation, camping, tours, concession and fees collected by third parties are not included unless stated otherwise

While Fee Free Days waive the cost of the house tour, you will still need to arrive at the Visitor Center first to obtain a timed ticket.

 

Entrance Fees

The fees you pay when visiting Adams National Historical Park (ADAMS) make a difference! We participate in the Congressionally-authorized Federal Recreation Lands Enhancement Act. Under this program, parks keep 80% of all fees collected and use that money to fund important projects that improve visitor services and protect resources.
