Create an itinerary including The Gamble House
Admire a mansion's-worth of woodwork at The Gamble House, an Arts and Crafts-style residence that today belongs in the National Register of Historic Places. Finished in 1908 by David Gamble of Proctor & Gamble fame, the home boasts extensive gardens, a fully wooden exterior, and a host of decks, awnings, and outdoor patios. Join a guided tour led by a docent to explore the house's ornate interior. As you wander the living spaces, marvel at the collection of decorative furnishings and array of spacious rooms. Keep in mind that you must sign up for the tour in order to access the building, so book ahead of time as spots are limited and fill up quickly. Use our Pasadena online trip itinerary builder to add The Gamble House and other attractions to your Pasadena vacation plans.

  • Beautiful home from the outside. It was impressive to visit even though no one was allowed inside due to COVID. Hopefully I'll visit again when tours of the inside resume.

  • A masterfully designed home with thought put into every room. The staff were accommodating of disability and can provide wheelchair access to the entire first floor of the home. Our docent was knowledgeable and overall the experience was great. I look forward to returning for a more in-depth tour
  • Well worth the visit, advance reservations a must as there were no walk up spaces available the day we hoped to tour home interior. Stunning architecture, beautifully landscaped grounds. A small bookstore/gift shop sits next to the house.
