I only happen to be passing and to come across one of the most iconic buildings from Back To The Future. Unfortunately the house was shut for the holidays when I visited but just to see in person is just an amazing sight.

If you have the slightest interest in architecture this should be your first stop in Pasadena. The docent lead tours are excellent.

It's one of the greatest and original piece of architecture in USA. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the guided tour of this magnificent example of Arts and Crafts architecture and design. Beautiful surroundings and a place to relax and enjoy.

Our kids (11 and 13) were suspicious but the terrific tour and unexpected Back to the Future connection won them over. The history of the house is interesting and it is so well cared for. Beautiful gardens. Small but well curated gift shop.

The thought and details that went into planning and execution of this house are extraordinary. My mom loves home tours and is especially fond of the Arts and Crafts style, so we did a tour during her visit to LA.
The docents are extremely professional and knowledgeable full of information shared with warmth and excitement.

For anyone interested in visiting, planning ahead is important because the tour tickets are sold in advance and can sell out.

There is ample free parking on the street which is always a bonus when visiting any place in LA.
