Take a tour of one of the most historic homes in Malibu. The historic Adamson House and Malibu Lagoon Museum is a fascinating trip back in time to the days when the Chumash Indians roamed the area. It was not long after when Rhoda Rindge Adamson and her husband Merritt Adamson built a stunning home in Malibu, at the beautiful spot where the Malibu Creek meets the Pacific Ocean. Today you can tour the home, get a look at their amazing museum, and visit this important historic site.
The Adamson House was built in the Spanish Colonial Revival style in 1929. It is near the Malibu Pier and Surfrider Beach, and is home to an amazing display of decorative tiles, antiques and collectibles. You can marvel at the hand-carved doors, molded ceilings, impressive cast ironwork and bottle glass windows. Then spend some time strolling the landscaped grounds and get to know the history of Malibu and the days that helped to shape the city you know and love today.
The best way to explore the home is to take the guided Adamson House Tour. This one-hour tour will guide you through the home, with all its original furnishings and the world-renowned display of Malibu Potteries tile. The docent will give you all the details about this beautiful house, complete with anecdotes and engaging history of the home and its former owners.
When you’ve explored the house, be sure to stop next door at the Malibu Lagoon Museum. Inside you’ll find an incredible collection of rare artifacts, photographs, documents and antiques all displaying the history of Malibu. The Museum starts with the days of the Chumash Indians through the Spanish Californian culture, with a focus on the Rindge and Adamson families – two families of great significance to the city of Malibu.
This historic tour is best when you take the time to truly enjoy it. Arrive in style in your 2013 GL550 SUV From Mercedes-Benz of Encino.
