For a limited time only, the Gamble House will be offering four ‘Family’ Tours geared towards younger guests, ages 5-16. On select Sundays during the month of July, a trained, former junior docent (now an 11th grader) will lead younger guests on a 60-minute tour of the Gamble House using visual learning aids and a “find and seek” handout to capture the attention of younger guests as they explore the exquisite architecture and craftsmanship of Greene & Greene. At the conclusion of the tour, families may show their tour stickers at the Gamble House bookstore to receive a copy of Greene & Greene for Kids for the discounted price of $4.
Molly Schwartz, a former junior docent who will be beginning her senior year at La Canada Flintridge Prep in the fall, will be leading these special ‘Family’ Tours this summer. A graduate of the Gamble House Junior Docent program, Molly was interested in returning to the Gamble House in some volunteer capacity and the timing was perfect for her to step in and help launch this series of tours geared towards younger guests, 5-16
Parents may elect to join a regular Docent-led Tour while children take the Family Tour
(except those who bring children under 8).
Adults $15; seniors (65+) $12.50; FoGH Members – FREE
About the Gamble House Junior Docent Program:
