The Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio is a historic house and design studio in Oak Park, Illinois, which was designed and owned by architect Frank Lloyd Wright. First built in 1889 and added to over the years, the home and studio is furnished with original Wright-designed furniture and textiles. It has been restored by the Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust to its appearance in 1909, the last year Wright lived there with his family. Here, Wright worked on his career and aesthetic to become one of the most influential architects of the 20th century.

The property was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972, declared a National Historic Landmark four years later, and contributes to the Frank Lloyd Wright–Prairie School of Architecture Historic District containing a number of his projects and related work.

  • They've done a great job of restoring the house and studio. Felt like we stepped back in history. This made us aware of Frank Lloyd Wright's influence throughout our visit in Chicago. Suggest you...

  • Oh WOW - I knew I liked Frank Lloyd Wright's prairie-style modern architecture but being in his own home and seeing his studio is really incredible. I love how cozy everything is yet still filled with light. The hour-long tour is very friendly and interesting and it's just incredible to see inside his house and his mind. You don't enter on the Chicago street side, where his studio is - enter through the gift shop to the left side. Tours start there and go through his house first, then out through the studio. It's not to be missed!
  • For lovers of architecture, this is a truly unique and amazing walking tour. Plenty of options to choose from. Mark was a fantastic tour guide on our 3.5 hour tour of the home, studio, and Oak Park residences.
  • Tour was very educational. I learned more about architecture than I thought I wanted to know. Very interesting facts and stories. The house itself is beautiful and learning the history of the area was fascinating.
  • Cool self-paced walking tour of the neighborhood featured several of the homes FLW built. The guided tour of his personal residence and studio was informational and very interesting. The tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable.
  • Totally worth a visit and guided tour for anyone interested in the story of Chicago and world Architecture. The self guided tour through the neighborhood is also interesting and educational. Gift shop has tons of related merchandise and books.
