  • Love Frank Lloyd Wright, and loved the tour guide. I was disappointed to see the entire top floor was under renovation. This is fine, but I didn't like paying for the 2 hour tour and not be warned before hand that a large chunk of the upstairs was not complete. I am sure once it is done, the 2 hour tour will be amazing.
  • Awesome restoration to one of Buffalo's architectural masterpieces. Great site and neighborhood to visit. Outdoor grounds are impeccable. A must see if you are a Frank Lloyd Wright fan.
  • We did the 1 hour tour. It was OK for the cost which I understand is how they are funding restoration. They are in the process of restoring the home. No pictures are allowed inside during either 1 or 2 hour tour, a special "photography" tour must be purchased instead. I was a little disappointed by that but once all is restored to splendor it will be very nice. I would have liked more video or pictures in the museum to learn more background.
  • From an Architect's perspective this place is amazing! The level of detail is spectacular! I'm an ultimate Frank Lloyd Wright fan and this site is something to be seen!
  • Very much a work in progress - only a few parts of the 1st floor was accessible. While is was beautiful , it is very disappointing that the other areas are not restored and used for office space and other uses (when they have a separate building next door that could be used ) and the restoration that have been done are minimal ( few windows are nothing more than appliqu├ęs)
