Wright lived here for 20 years,. His work and architectural brilliance comes alive with the help of the dedicated volunteer tour leaders at his beautifully preserved home and studio.

We made on-line reservations for two for a Friday in early October. On-line reservations are necessary to avoid disappointment. We benefited by viewing Frank Lloyd Wright: A Film by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick at home before our visit which provided the context for this house as a part his overall accomplishments. Tour groups are kept to about one dozen... More

Frank Lloyd Wright is a very important figure for all architects. The rare chance to visit his own home and studio, see and feel the unique furniture that he designed, live the spaces and learn so many about his character is something extraordinary.

My husband and I took both the walking audio tour and the home and studio tour and really enjoyed them! Just walking around the neighborhood on a beautiful fall morning was already an excellent way to be away from the tourist crowd of Chicago on a Saturday morning. Trully recommend it!

This was a very worthwhile side trip - accessible by train from downtown; a pleasant ride and a very interesting tour. I didn't feel tat our volunteer tour guide was as knowledgeable as she could have been about some of the home furnishings, but overall it was a good tour.

Who hasn't heard of Frank Lloyd Wright? Knew those little factoids that we all know but, not much more. Tour the house--you will get to know the man and his family. Quite interesting. Tour is about an hour. Presentations are very interesting and well done.

We booked the bike tour of Wright homes through Oak Park. Easy and enjoyable two hour bike tour. John was great guide. Very informative on the homes, their histories, and the life of Wright in general. Tickets were about $35/person and the tour is limited to ten people. Rental bikes and helmets (optional) were included as part of the ticket... More
