The Lummis House is operated by the Historical Society of Southern California as a historic house museum. The exterior of the house is built of arroyo stone. The house originally contained a stone tower, but that was later demolished. The interior contains some of Lummis' collection of artifacts, as well as copies of many of his books. The museum is open to the public for tours.
The drought-tolerant and native plant gardens encompass the gardens and natural landscape around the residence, including namesake El Alsal California Sycamore trees.
