Neutra House Tours

Educational Tours and use of reference materials.

The public is invited to schedule a tour and/or use the reference materials in the Neutra House.  Such educational access is free, as long as the house is available and a docent can be scheduled.

A house tour, introductory talk, and ten minute project story video takes about a half hour total.  Visitors are also welcome to stay and look through the collection of books and/or watch videos produced by the Neutra House program under the guidance of the Architecture History Committee.

To arrange a visit, check the calendar on this website.  Find a time that is not scheduled and that works for you.  Weekends are often available.  Then email your desired date and time to visit and we will do our best to arrange it. 
Our email address is neutra@los-altos.org.
