The fourth time I stayed in Chicago I took my wife out to see it and enjoyed the tour just as much myself as I did the first time around. The house and studio has been left very much... More

If your in Chicago, you shouldn't miss the experience. one of the great Architects of a generation. The tour takes you inside his studio and then gives you a guide (audio if you want) to see some examples of about 8/9 nearby houses. Well worth the tour of the studio, then you can do the houses at your own pace.

If you are an architectural buff, this is the place to be - situated in Oak Park, next door to RIver Forest. Even if you aren't familiar with Frank Lloyd Wright, you will appreciate the beauty of his contribution to architectural design and his fascinating life story. Frank Lloyd Wright (FLW) was one of the most significant architects of the... More

Seeing the home of one of the greatest home architects of our time just as he left it in 1909 was inspiring.

This is where FLW got his start and the 3 hour tour really shows the progression of his work fromVictorian remodel to commercial full Prairie style. We were very fortunate to have a staff member conduct the tour and she was terrific. There is plenty of street parking in the area as well as a couple places to get something... More

If you are a fan you will probably enjoy the tour and some of the historical stories presented. While this property is closer than Spring Green and Arizona to Chicago, I enjoyed the other facilities much more. The store is kinda small and the tour feels limited, but it was only about $17. There are some great photo opportunities outside,... More

The tour of Frank Lloyd Wright's home and studio was quite interesting. Our guide provided excellent commentary on Wright's personal and professional life. It was interesting to learn about how he started out as an architect and how his stye evolved during the years he lived and worked in Oak Park. The rooms in the house were impressively designed with... More

We took the Pedal Oak Park tour that began at Greenline Bike shop. It's offered through the FLW Trust group. Since there is no place on Trip Advisor to rate it, I'll add it here. With older teens we thought they would enjoy a bike ride tour to look at a number of homes in beautiful Oak Park. It was... More
