Get an up-close look at the Eameses’ celebration of life, art, and work as captured by their perfect arrangements of objects collected through their lives, all still set carefully in place. Feel how the house satisfied the Eameses’ original design mandate: to “…aid as background for life in work”.

The private interior tour walks visitors through the ground level of the house as well as the studio. We allow four guests inside at a time; larger group interior visits may be arranged and are personalized to accommodate timing constraints. The guided tour is roughly 90 minutes long and packed with information on the history of the site, as well as on Charles and Ray.

  • $275 ($200 members) for 1-2 adults.
    $450 ($375 members) for 3-4 adults.
  • We offer tours for larger groups depending upon availability.  Pricing based on number of visitors.
  • Children 12 and under are not permitted inside the residence.
  • Reservations are required at least four business days in advance.

All proceeds support conservation work under the 250 Year Project.
