We had some free time while in LA so decided to stop by the Eames house. It was worth $10 to walk around and peek into the house. The docents gave some good background information and then we just casually explored for about 15 minutes. The tour does not go inside but you can see in pretty well and there... More

It was very difficult to find.. the taxi driver got confused but it was worth the try. The house is really beautiful and unique but the 10$ fee for the exterior (only) visit is overrated.

Our out-of-town guests interested in architecture suggested a visit to the Eames House. Frankly my only vague knowledge of the Eames name up to that point was the iconic lounge chair. We followed the instructions on the Eames Foundation website, made reservation and found our way to Pacific Palisades on MLK Day. Parking on Corona del Mar Street was easy... More

I was fortunate enough to get a ticket on short notice for the self-guided exterior tour.. Although self-guided, there is an introduction/orientation. I got mine from a very nice man (Richard?) and it was very informative. The views are also great. I took tons of pictures. I was able to see the contents of the house a few years ago... More

This is a really special place which was the home of an important creative 20th century designer. Very interesting to anyone interested in furniture or architecture.

After visiting other famous houses of architects and designers this is more a hard core one. The place is a bit hard to find and parking only possible a little walking distance away. They offer interior and exterior tours. The interior tour is guided but very expensive. The exterior tour is unguided and a reasonable $10 per person. You need... More

We did an external only tour of the house, which was certainly worth the small fee! The staff are very friendly and informative. Having told us a brief history of Charles & Ray Eames and how they came to build the house, they then left us to roam around and take photos, which was great for us. Really would recommend... More

The Eames House can be visited by both those involved in architecture & design, as well as whoever has interest in learning about this pioneering design for many of the modern homes your see all around Southern California. My visit was very intimate, with only 1 guide present, a charming young lady who was very helpful and enthusiastic about the... More

I must disagree with the reviews implying this is more for those in the architecture field. I knew nothing about several of the well known architects from LA, much less the Case Study Houses, but learned of them while researching my trip. I quickly realized what an architecturally important city LA is, and made a point to see various important... More

Visiting the Charles & Ray Eames house is a Must Do for those of us interested in the design genius of the couple and their contributions to mid century modern home and furnishing's design. Not a tour for everyone, just those who know the Eames' work and wish to visit the abode of the masters. Inspiring. ...
