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.

We had an "interesting" and fairly lengthy subway ride out to Oak Park to visit Frank Lloyd Wright House but it was worth it to see the famous architect's home in person. He treated this place like an incubator and it's loaded with alternately quirky and brilliant features. It's also intriguing to survey the surrounding neighbourhood and imagine that Wright... More

The house and history are fascinating. While I wouldn't consider Wright as the cream of the crop when it comes to architecture, he was a risk taker and inventive. The rooms are unique, but the studio was sort of awe inspiring especially when imaging a staff actually working in it. Our tour guide was great and our group moved through... More

One of the worlds great architects does not disappoint - the reality of his house is stunning and complex, but the best thing is to see his deign in situ and then walk down the street in Oak Park picking out the other FLW houses. These majestic structures are blended with the traditional decorative Victorians of the earlier era into... More

If you are a Frank Lloyd Wright fan and are in the Chicago area, this is a must see. Just a walk around the neighborhood gives you sights of other houses he designed. In May there is a Frank Lloyd Wright walk that I wish I could do. The home has original furniture and some family mementos. The studio is... More

Our visit to the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio was an unforgettable experience. We really enjoyed the guided tour in a small group very much. The lovely lady (our tour guide) did a great job explaining the life and work of this genius architect. The house and garden are beautiful and well looked after. The souvenir shop offers some...

The tours are excellent and the home is fantastic! The docents are very knowledgeable and pay attention to details as they walk you through the home. You can add on by taking either a self-guided tour, or a docent led tour of the Frank Lloyd Write homes near his studio.

This place is a must for anyone interested in American history because Mr Wrights creations are all over the USA. The beauty and utility of his creations constitute a real education. Amazing talent. His home in Oak Park has been preserved in a wonderful manner. The tour guide brought the place to life with his stories about Mr. Wright, his... More

The home tour is done so well with informed, polite docents. The additional walking tour with headphones of the neighborhood is delightful in good weather.

I've been to the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio several times - with the kids, on my own, on a date and with friends. Without regard to how one feels about the style he pioneered or the quality of this particular home compared to some of the other homes he designed, this building holds a unique and special place...

I loved seeing the inside of the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio. I learned a lot and came away with many ideas about home and life. How interesting to know that his mother thought he would be an architect, so she bought him special architectural blocks. The children's playroom was out of this world. And his famous cheapness was... More
