Our docent was a bit of a hero worshipper, but the tour of the home was very interesting. If you ever wondered who Wright was at his design core, this is the place to understand it.

The walking tour of Frank Lloyd Wright's various homes and his studio in Oak Park is something not to be missed. Designed between 1889 and 1913 you will get a flavor of the man and his creative genius.

This is very important FLW site as it was his home and studio in the early part of his career. Architecturally, it is not as exciting as his later buildings, but interesting nevertheless.

This is a must see. Just an amazing look into the prairie style and where it came from. The house and studio are beautiful. The neighborhood has a stunning amount of dream home from the late 19th early 20th century. I am so glad I live here.

Everybody knows of Frank Lloyd Wright. Walking through his home and studio gives one an intimate view of this iconic figure. The guides are knowledgeable and you'll likely go home with something purchased in the gift shop. Be sure to take advantage of one of several tours through the neighborhood to view other homes and buildings designed by Wright. I... More

The Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio is an absolute international gem. The tour and the area around the home as well as Downtown Oak Park (a few short blocks from the site) are must sees for seeing the brilliance of one of America's premier architects. I would suggest after the tour (make prior reservations), head down to the commercial... More

Because Frank built the house for his family and a rather large one at that this tour is a great way to introduce young ones to architecture and FLW in particular. Kids remember things like how Frank modified the bedrooms, playroom and nursery for his family and they can envision what it might have been like to grow up in... More

Great piece of history located in Oak Park. A must see if you even remotely like architecture. Wright's designs and innovations are outstanding and this home and studio does an excellent job at showcasing his work and educating guests about the history of his career while also entertaining listeners about his personal life. Docents are formally trained and outstanding.

If you're a Wright fan, or if you're not, this is a great little tour of his home, of his personal architecture, and some of his quirks (like extreme measures to ensure privacy). A pleasant couple of hours learning about Wright.
