One of the most interesting things to see in Pasadena, the Gamble House is the best turn of the century example of a Greene and Greene arts and crafts residence replete with period furnishings. If you just drive by this house, you'll definitely want to see inside. It's easy to get a ticket on line, by phone or at the... More

The Gamble House is truly a pivotal piece of Pasadena history, particularly from an architectural standpoint. The Green Brothers revolutionized home design with their "no nails" vision, in which the pieces all fit together and support each other. This spawned entire neighborhoods throughout Pasadena featuring the Green & Green concept. TAKE THE TOUR!

No matter who I've taken to tour the Gamble House in Pasadena, I've never seen anyone who hasn't come away amazed at this example of Mission Architecture. It's beautifully preserved and lovingly cared for, so you can really appreciate its beauty and the talents of Greene & Greene.

A Craftsman on steroids, the finest workmanship, a woodpeckers delight. Maintained to a high level, a must see.

What a beautiful house! Tours are docent led by volunteers who love the house (who wouldn't?). The house itself is exceptional, built in 1908, designed by bothers who not only designed the house but also all the furniture. There is pretty much nothing about this house that is not exceptional, and I cannot recommend visiting it highly enough. I was... More

Many times in Pasadena and first time took a tour of Gamble house! Great place to see! And don't forget to buy in museum book store a map of other art&craft houses around Westmoreland Place. You can walk around while waiting for your tour to start. Nice streets, gardens and beautiful houses.

Came here to tour a building I studied in school. The guided tour took about an hour and provided a good overview of the house's design principles, with some info on the architects and builder, and more info on the Gamble family. The care taken and support for the house is evident in the concern for the tour's impact on... More

Truly a treasure if you appreciate Arts and Craft Home architecture. We never tire of our visits to this Greene and Greene designed landmark. Whenever we are in Pasadena it makes it to the top of our to-do list. The home and grounds are in excellent condition and the bookstore is a bit of a treasure as well.
