I called to make a reservation and was told that our 11 month old wasn't allowed to go in the house with us.

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... More

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!

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

Our dosen, Mary Dale, gave us a memorable tour of this lovely FLW home. She described every aspect in remarkable detail. We have toured 20+ FLW homes, churches and buildings and this was one of our favorites. This usonium house may be the largest and more complete as far as original furnishings, etc that we have toured. The Foundation has... More

Not an architecture buff but I appreciate Wright's work. This house was amazing. He thought of almost everything. My wife wants to visit every FLW house in America now.

I think our tour guide really made this exceptional. A retired architect, he was very knowledgeable and in no hurry to rush us through. He answered our questions and told us so much about the house. The house is interesting and the grounds are beautiful. I always wanted to see a FLW house and I was not disappointed. It was... More
