Description:

The Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio served as Wright's private residence...

The Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio served as Wright's private residence and workplace from 1889 to 1909--the first 20 years of his career. Here Wright developed a new American architecture: the Prairie style. Filled with original furnishings, the Home and Studio demonstrates Wright's passion for controlling all aspects of his structures, including interior design and decorative arts. Enjoy guided tours of the museum complex and neighboring historic district seven days a week. Tour details are available on the Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust website.

For me, it was an exceptional experience to see the interiors and exteriors of this special home, surfaces that I'd read... More

I'm a fan of the architecture, but all of Oak Park was wonderful to see on our walking tour. Interesting.

Our tour of Frank Lloyd Wright's Home and Studio was the highlight of my trip to Chicago. I've been a fan of Wright's for decades and it was great to see a dwelling he designed so early in his career. The genesis of his later work can be seen in some of the details of this home. It's so modern... More

If you enjoy architecture at all, then you should go visit the Frank Lloyd Wright home and take the walk of other homes in the area that he designed. The architecture is beautiful, and the homes are located in an area with many painted ladies as well, which just add to the enjoyment. There is a total of just a... More

Excellent tour given here--and I usually prefer self-guided tours! Must visit this home. The historical context of the property and the examples of Wright's experimentation will shed much light on this architect's work and his immense influence in architecture, especially modern-day interiors.

Well worth the 40 minute tube trip out from the centre of Chicago. Very informative guided tour round a late nineteenth century family home. Don't miss the numerous examples of his work on the walk up from Oak Park station, though Unity Temple is currently closed for renovations.

I purchased what two sale's clerks assured me were aurhentic designs by Frank Lloyd Wright, reproduced as a stained glass window. It was to be attached by suction to an inside window. When I got home I discovered, after reading a description of the window from an insert that the it was not from a Frank Lloyd Wright design. Disgusted... More
