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 ($225 members) for 1-2 adults.
    $450 ($400 members) for 3-4 adults.
  • We offer tours for larger groups depending upon availability.  Pricing is 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.

Visitor Guidelines:

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

1. Reservations and deposit are required.
2. No parking at the House; see Directions for parking details.
3. No interior photographs; exterior photos for personal use only, not for publication of any kind.
4. 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.
