Tour TOM House

Tom of Finland’s home in LA is recognized not only for its historic architecture but as a cultural resource of the City of Los Angeles. Tom of Finland House (TOM House) is significant for its association with Tom, the historic personage who lived here during the last decade of his life. This era marked a particularly productive period in his career with his contributions to erotic art and Gay culture.


With the easing of many of the COVID-19 restrictions, TOM House is once again accepting reservations for tours of the house where Tom of Finland spent his later years and which now serves as the home of Tom of Finland Foundation.

We generally book a week in advance and will confirm with you. Let us know if you prefer a Thursday or Saturday visit and how much time you have; a guided tour is usually 1.5-2 hours.

Masks MUST be worn during the tour.
