This wonderful Greene and Greene home is well worth a visit if you enjoy time capsule homes - and in particular if you enjoy the Arts and Crafts aesthetic. Will knowledgeable docents, the tour was very enjoyable. A great little book store / gift shop is adjacent in the old garage.

This is a truly stunning structure; a point of pride for the city and state. For anyone interested in arts and crafts design, architecture or in the area looking for a beautiful respite from the hectic pace that is Los Angeles, stop at the Gamble House. I have visited this home twice and plan to revisit again this year. This structure is both impressive from it's design and aesthetics representing a period in time when architects designed not only the building but all art and furniture as well.

A must see while in Pasadena. Exquisitely crafted home. The tour is informative and imperative to fully appreciate the design and elements of this Masterpiece.

The wood work is outstanding! Different type of wood and all hand crafted. The tour is abour an hour. Might not be fun for kids! The tour guide was outstanding and we were able to ask many questions. Cost was about 10.00 which we felt was not expensive. Fun to visit and then have lunch or whatever!

On a recent trip to LA I decided to take the family to see the Gamble house. I have first heard of it from being in the Back to the Future films. I read up on it online and it sounded interesting. We went on a Saturday morning to the first tour. Our guide, Bruce I believe his name was, was a very nice, informative and engaging guide. He knew a lot about the property and its previous owners. He gave us a tour that latest about an hour. It was quite fun to walk trough the museum and look around at this beautiful house.

They have free parking in front of the house. Tickets were $10 for adults and kids 12 and under were free. I don't really reccomened if you have small kids. If your kids are the bored easy type they will not like it. Plus you dont want them messing up such a nice place. There are some stairs to climb that I can see would be difficult for people who may have a hard time getting around. Enjoy etw.
