We emailed ahead of time to reserve a spot for the exterior tour ($10 a person). So worth it! Admittedly, we didn’t know much about Ray and Charles Eames, other than some of their furniture design pieces. This was a great way to learn more...More

One other couple was on the grounds when we visited. The walking approach to the property was a great reveal. The docents were very knowledgeable, like being there, and pointed out many elements of interest. The house is one of the Case Studies houses enabled...More

No indication what so ever to find the place, seems the place is hidden, why not ? Hower, 10$/adult is really not value for money. After a list of "Don't do", you actually can NOT visit the house. Visiting the garden is tolerated (but don't...More

If you are into architecture or design--especially mid-century modern--this is an absolute "must." We sprang for the interior tour, and felt it was completely worth it. Our guide was informative, pleasant, and took the time to explain a lot about the Eames, their history, the...More

Had a wonderful internal visit here which is well worth the extra money although no photos allowed inside. Our guide was really helpful and gave a great insight into the lives of Charles and Ray. Easily the highlight of our trip to So Cal

We visited with a group that was exploring the LA-area architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright, so we had some very knowledgeable docents who were able to make connections between FLW and Charles and Ray Eames. I was enthralled by the place even though we could...More

The Eames House is a must for lovers of modern architecture. Located in Pacific Pallisades, not far from Santa Monica it's well worth the effort to visit. It's a unique house that is beautiful to view up close and from afar. You must book for...More

Great house for the architecture fans. Interesting to see this modern place and think when it was built. A forerunner of so many ideas for later houses. I just did the outside touring. You can see in the windows and doors. Very expense to do...More

I loved discovering this place. Felt like paying a visit to the Eames. There is a very special and peculiar atmosphere which I enjoyed. Plan about an hour to take full advantage. You can really get a thorough understanding of how the Eames lived and...More

You've seen Eames furniture, perhaps own some. So it's a treat to visit the home they lived in and well worth it. I booked the pricey interior tour that's $275 for two people, even though I was solo. It offered a rare view into their...More
