Julia Child’s House

Iconic chef, television personality and cookbook author Julia Child lived in this Cambridge house from 1961-2001. The house's kitchen was transformed into a television set and was the setting for three of her shows. Upon moving out of the house, Child donated the kitchen and it remains on view at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History, in Washington, DC. 

A Cambridge resident for decades, Child was a loyal customer at many local businesses, including Savenor's Market and Harvest restaurant.

The house is a private residence and is not open to the public.
