Exterior Visit


Come get a close look at the Eames House. You are welcome to explore the grounds and the exterior of the house. The curtains and various windows will be open during your visit so you may view the interior. We think you will be pleasantly surprised at how much you can see of the interior through the windows that surround the house.

Learn more about the site and the Eameses by speaking to our docents, who are usually on-site Fridays and Saturdays.

  • Admission is $10.00; students with valid school ID and children under 12 are admitted for free.
  • If your group has 10 or more visitors, please request a group visit.
