Visiting the Eames House


Roof Work Advisory

HO_UC_n017smStarting on November 3, we will be re-roofing the Eames House and Studio. This is the final step towards finishing up Phase 1 of our 250 Year Project and will ensure the security of the building envelope.

The nature of this project is such that we cannot guarantee any appointments between November 3rd and December 20th. When we are open, there will be a no-entry buffer zone surrounding the buildings for safety reasons. Visits to the exterior will remain $10 as usual and we will be able to accommodate some interior tours during this period. If you are planning a visit between now and the end of the year, please give us a call at #310-459-9663 and we will update you with the latest information.

We are very excited to complete Phase 1 of our ongoing conservation work. We know it is an inconvenience for you, our visitors and we appreciate your understanding and flexibility during this time.


You are welcome to visit the Eames House for an exterior, self-guided tour. Reservations are required.

The Eames House is located at 203 Chautauqua Blvd., Pacific Palisades, CA 90272. There is no parking at the House. Free street parking is available on Corona del Mar, just north of the House, a five-minute walk.

In recent months, there have been a series of car break ins in the neighborhood surrounding the Eames House. Please discourage further thefts by making sure there are no valuables left in your car while you are visiting the House.
