Small tours with well informed docents. You get to see all of the house and ask questions. The house has all original furnishings which is very unusual. CALL for an appointment.

A short drive from downtown St. Louis this is a must see attraction for art and architecture lovers. BUT make sure you call ahead and schedule a private tour because the house is not open for the public at set times. Visits are by appointment only and cost $10 per person.

Our experience at the Frank Lloyd Wright House in Epsworth Park was very special and we were full of wonder at the design of this Usonian home. To enter the home is to become involved in the space exactly as Wright intended..one becomes a participant instead of just a resident or visitor. I have a fairly strong background (and a... More

This is really a unique place to visit. To think that little Kirkwood has this special Frank Lloyd Wright home is amazing. You must make a reservation and then prepare to step back in time.

I called to make a reservation and was told that our 11 month old wasn't allowed to go in the house with us. I completely understand that toddlers and young children are difficult to corral and parents should be responsible and choose a more child friendly museum, however I don't quite understand how a baby that doesn't walk and would...

American readers might not know that a partner of Frank Lloyd Wright who worked with him, including his wife who did many of FLW's interiors, was Walter Burley Griffin. WBG won the Australian Governments competition in 1927 to design the new Aussie capital, Canberra. The Kraus house in St.Louis was restored a few years ago for about 2 million US$... More

For FLW lovers, this place is simply amazing. The back story is a great one, and the condition of the house is exceptional for a Wright house. It's remarkable how "original" the home is....yes there has been some reconstruction of brickwork, but that's to be expected with a Wright design. The house is not one of the "grand " houses...

It was an amazing house to see and to learn the significance of how it was designed. Every spot had a reason.

The house has been beautifully restored and the volunteer guides are enthusiastic and informative. We hadn't done our research and so rang the day before and were really lucky to be able to fit into a tour. Thank you to the guides for making sure we managed it!

Wherever we travel, we try to find a Frank Lloyd Wright property to visit. This one was freshly renovated and treated like a queen. It is evident that everyone involved in this house treats it well. The docent was very passionate about FLW. As everyone else says in their reviews,make reservations ahead of time!! They only take small groups through... More
