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.

USC owns and manages the Gamble House. So you know what can expect. Perfection. It is Greene and Greene at its best. Come to millionaires row and take a trip into yesteryear. Relax and enjoy the environment.

The Metro line stops around 1 mile from the House, and there is a bus which goes from Metro to very near the House. The directions are posted on the Gamble House website.
