Although The Gamble House does not offer any specialized classes, like most museums do, they offer a variety of special tours and membership programs. The specialized tours enable visitors to learn more about an area of The Gamble House alongside an educated and professional tour guide. Two of the most popular specialized tours are the Details & Joinery tour and Behind the Velvet Ropes. The Details & Joinery tour allows visitors to explore the various types of wood and construction throughout The Gamble House. The tour is led by Jim Ipekjian, who has been a contemporary woodworker for over 20 years. As for Behind the Velvet Ropes, it takes visitors to various areas of The Gamble House that are inaccessible to visitors who participate in the basic One-Hour Guided tour. Each participant is given a flashlight, so they can examine the craftsmanship in detail. The tour guide will even open various doors and objects to show participants hidden gems of The Gamble House.
Aside from the specialized tours, The Gamble House offers a membership program. Although there are different tiers to the membership program, all members have the opportunity to learn about The Gamble House in-depth, as well as participating in members-only workshops and events, such as private concerts held by the University of Southern California.
