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.

A long awaited trip & I was not disappointed. Our guide was so knowledgeable & made it such fun. The gift shop is a bit pricey but hopefully some of the money goes to restoration. Walking the neighborhood was interesting even without a guide. If you're in Chicago, don't miss this.

A wonderful opportunity to see homes in Oak Park and Riverside, as well as the Johnson Wax plant and tower and Wingspread in Racine Wisconsin and the Bradley house in Kankakee IL, by Frank Lloyd Wright, and architects of the period. Well organized. well done. also saw the Conley estate in Riverside.

You don't have to be an architect to appreciate the vision Frank Lloyd Wright had in the late 1800's. This is a tour of his first house that was built in 1889 and was added onto as his family grew. Don't expect to see this on your own, though. They run very informative tours and are serious about you not... More

If you have ever heard of twentieth century building design, you know Frank Lloyd Wright. This place is a must-see and it's worth it.

We have visited many Wright homes and were glad to add this one to our collection. Our tour guide, Dave, did a great job of keeping the tour interesting by adding in some fun stories as well as giving the facts about the house. Great stop!

Traveled to Chicago to join the Frank Lloyd Wright Walk Plus 2015. Oak Park is a welcoming community that embraces this annual event and lovers of FLW come from across the globe. This activity takes a village and much logistics and the Oak Parkers and friends make it a hard act to follow. Arrived at 8:30 and took the bus... More

First time to Oak Park. We have visited many Wright homes and we're happy to finally be able to visit Oak Park. Our tour guide was born in Italy and was most knowledgable about Mr Wright. She gave us a great tour and added some things I did not know about Oak Park home. Leaving his wife and children was... More

I toured the house with my two teenagers and they stayed engaged the entire time. The docent did a great job guiding us through the house and telling us about the history of the house, Frank Lloyd Wright and his family. When the tour finished, we checked out the neighborhood and looked at the other FLW houses in the area.... More
