Exterior Visit


The Eames House will be closed through August 2021.

Like you, we are closely monitoring news related to the COVID-19 outbreak. As we respond to this challenging environment, we will update you on our website banner/social media/blogs. The safety of our visitors, staff and volunteers is our top priority. We thank you for your understanding.

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 of the house.

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

Visitor Guidelines:

You are visiting a National Historical Landmark located on private grounds. Please help us care for Charles and Ray’s home by respecting the directions of our staff and by following these guidelines during your visit:

1. Reservations are required.
2. Children must not be left unattended.
3. No parking at the House; see Directions for parking details.
4. No interior photographs; exterior photos for personal use only, not for publication of any kind.
5. You are visiting the House and grounds at your own risk. This historic site sits on a bluff with steep slopes: stay clear of the edge. It is a natural terrain: pay attention to your footing as there are many level changes.
6. All sales are final. No refunds or date exchanges will be issued. All visitors must show ID upon arrival at the Eames House.
