Twilight tours currently unavailable.

We continue to closely monitor 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.

Enjoy the magic of the Eames House from twilight to sunset. Gain a unique understanding of the house as the colors and light evolve as dusk approaches, while getting an up-close look at the Eameses’ celebration of life, art, and work. Feel how the house and its carefully arranged objects satisfied the Eameses’ original design mandate: to “…aid as background for life in work”.

The private twilight tour walks visitors through the ground level of the house as well as the studio. We allow up to four guests inside at a time; larger group 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.

  • Reservations are required.
  • $1,000 for up to 4 adults.
  • We offer tours for larger groups depending upon availability.  Pricing is based on number of visitors.
  • Children 15 and under are not permitted inside the residence.
  • All visitors must agree to abide by our Covid-19 Safety Protocols.

Hours: Start times are based on changing sunset times throughout the year. Appointments are available on Thursdays and Fridays, at which point the start time will be identified. We recommend booking your appointment at least one week in advance in order to avoid disappointment.

A portion of proceeds help support conservation work under the 250 Year Project.
