We were having breakfast in Pasadena and found this house listed under "things to do" and thought why not? We got there just a few minutes before their last one hour tour for the day. We bought tickets right when we arrived and there was no need to make any advance plans, reservations or payments The grounds were immaculate and... More

This GEM of Pasadena and Southern California is always worth a visit. To closely view the exquisite woodwork, details, and furnishings that perfectly match the Gamble house is a treat for all. The ground are beautiful, the bookstore excellent, and the proximity to the Norton SImon (a short walk) can not be beat.

Depending on the time of year you are in Pasadena, you might need to get your reservations ahead of time. The day we showed up all tours were booked so we had to book one for the following day. It was a little tricky figuring out where to park. You need to go to a middle entrance and park on... More

A well maintained example of a famous Greene and Greene house. The tour allows you get close to details and textures as well as furnishings many designed by the Greene brothers. Small gift shop with related arts and crafts items.

A n eye popping look at Green and Green. You come away wondering," How did they do it?" Every time I visit, I see something new.

The Gamble House is worth a short visit to catch a glimpse of Pasadena's Gilded Age in the early 20th Century and is a very good example of American Arts and Crafts architecture. The guided tours take about one hour and the guides are very knowledgeable about the house and its former occupants. Be sure to walk around the neighborhood... More

This is a beautiful house that has been wonderfully preserved. There is original furniture and accessories throughout the house. The docents are very helpful and well educated. The tour takes about an hour and you learn about the structure of the house and the history of the family that owned it.
