  • An architectural treasure, well worth a visit. Craftsman design by period masters Green&Green. Very informative docents led our tour. Unfortunately disappointing that interior photography (even flash-less) was not allowed, though good books by professional photographers are available in the gift shop.
  • Great Scott! If you're a fan of architecture or Back to the Future it's a must see when in Southern California. Even if you aren't a fan of either, maybe it will spark your interest.
  • A well maintained example of a famous Greene and Greene house. The tour allows you get close to details and textures as well as furnishings many designed by the Greene brothers. Small gift shop with related arts and crafts items.
  • Docents do a good job with explaining the history and architecture. Enjoyed my visit.
  • The Gamble House is a lovely historical landmark to visit if you are interested in seeing how art movements like American Arts and Crafts influence architecture. The home is very well preserved and while we were here they were in the process of restoring the rafters. Purchase tickets for a tour if you want to see the inside. There is a discount for students.
