The Adamson House & Malibu Lagoon Museum near Surfrider Beach in Malibu is a great place to learn about the history of Malibu. The Museum Grounds are open from 8 am until sunset, but the Adamson House is only open from 11 am – 3 pm Wed – Sat.. The property has stunning fountains and a spectacular view of the Lagoon and the ocean. The garden is also a beautiful place to walk or have a seat on the benches and enjoy the Malibu breezes next to the ocean. Every room in the House has tiles from Malibu Potteries and has a very Spanish feel to it. The museum features the history of the Malibu area from the Chumash Indians time to the times of ranching to the time when surfing came to Malibu.
