This one of a kind architectural gem is worth the visit. Be sure to arrive on a day they give docent led tours. Check their web site for any and all kinds of tours. The Greene brothers designed this Craftsman house for David and Mary Gamble from Cincinnati. Almost all of the furnishings that were there in 1909 are still... More

If you are in the Pasadena area, I would HIGHLY recommend visiting the Gamble house. We took the hour long tour and the home was a spectacular example of arts and craft architecture. A few other readers have mentioned the darkness, but our guide used a light, so it ended up not being a problem. I would note, though, that... More

I first toured this place when I studied architecture at USC. The school has a partnership with the foundation that operates the house. It is an excellent example of the Greene & Greene style, indicative of the Arts & Crafts movement that was popular in the early 20th century in the U.S. They give you slippers to wear over your...

We took the one hour tour of the Gamble house. We're both arts-and-crafts fans with a fair amount of knowledge, and found the tour to be both packed with details (woodwork, family history, artifacts and furniture) with great coverage of both public and private rooms of the house. The house is stunning also because it's so elaborate and detailed compared... More

Due to time constraints, I was only able to see the main level of the Gamble House, as tickets were half price and it was a 30-minute tour. The lighting was such that the interior of the home was very dark, other than the kitchen or a bedroom. Personally, the bookstore was wonderful and better photos were in a book... More

The Gamble House is an outstanding local landmark. (If you want to drive by or just walk around, be sure to understand that Westmoreland Place is a little street that runs parallel to busy Orange Grove Boulevard. You have to get off of Orange Grove in order to visit or drive slowly past the Gamble House ... you can really... More

A walking tour through the Gamble House is a step back in time . see how the rich and powerful lived in beautiful Pasadena see the hardness of their life yet the beauty and simplicity of it all. If you like architectural history and stepping back through the pages of time this is surely a $10 tour worth every minute

If you are interested in architecture or history this is a great tour. I don't think it is appropriate for most children as it is an hour plus long tour and there are appropriate rules in place to protect the house and furnishings such as do not touch the wood, sit or lean on furniture, and try not to step...
