  • Lovers of Frank Lloyd's work will love a visit here. In additional to remarkably preserved architecture, you'll find helpful staff to curate your visit and lift your understanding of how FLW integrated man-made materials into the natural environment. There's lots to see both walking the grounds and getting into the buildings. Take your time!
  • Profound and inspiring architecture, but cold and unfriendly staff make for an unpleasant experience. 35$ per person for a brief tour with an average group of twenty. The aim is to get you in and get you out, and the time schedule is strict. Expect to be rushed. This is 100% a money making operation and corner cutting on the poorly maintained grounds is evident. Any form of private or contemplative experience at the grounds is strictly forbidden. Absolutely no public space, and no unsupervised time. Not recommended for architecture students. Staff did not say hello or greet us. Inadequate disabled parking. Lack of shade.
  • Great tour! Enjoyed being able to actually sit on the furniture. Also enjoyed learning the history of the place and learning the reasons he designed some of the areas the way he did.
  • Visit requires guided tour, essential to really getting to see and learn. Is a functioning school of architecture started by Frank Lloyd Wright as a way to supplement income. Filled with beautiful spaces, furniture and gives a wonderful insight to an American genius of architecture and style.
  • Came here in 2016 and it was completely on a whim. Absolutely fell in love with the place and the perspectives it forces upon you and I do not mean that figuratively. The tours are well worth the trip if you have any interest in interior design or simply architecture.
