If you’ve been to Malibu before, you’re familiar with its irresistable charm. From its expansive ocean views and world-class beaches to its abundant shoppes and rich cultural gems, Malibu never fails to deliver. One of our favorite places to enjoy an afternoon and experience all that Malibu has to offer is the Adamson House.
The Adamson House is located within the Malibu Lagoon State Beach Park, and it’s one of the best places in Malibu to soak up gorgeous views of Malibu Lagoon, Malibu Beach and Malibu Pier. But it doesn’t stop there… this incredible historic landmark features sparkling fountains, flagstone pathways and a pool with an adjoining bathhouse. It’s even been dubbed the “Taj Mahal of Tile” as a result of the extensive use of decorative ceramic tiles created by Rufus Keeler of Malibu Potteries!
Built in 1930 for Rhonda Rindge Adamson and her husband, Merritt Huntley Adamson, this house was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1977 and was designated as an official California Historical Landmark in 1985.
The Adamson House is just a stone’s throw away from Malibu Beach Inn, located at 23200 Pacific Coast Highway. Guided tours are available Wednesday through Saturday; a gift shop is open for memorabilia and unique gifts. Admission is $5 for adults 17+ and $2 for children.
