The Adamson house is very interesting to hear about. The Docents show their passion for the house and the stories that go with it. A definite place to visit while in Malibu.

A special location and adjacent beach for a stroll. Parking costs you but you're in Malibu, so this is the norm here. Enjoy learning about CA specific architecture & history - it's worth it.

I recommend doing the interior tours of you're interested in learning about life during the 1920-1940s. This is a beautiful Spanish Revival home with beautiful ocean bay views and garden. A nice quiet and peaceful afternon leisure sightseeing.
