Must See!

If you are a Frank Lloyd Wright fan this is a must see! It is an additional free when you go to the Currier Museum but totally worth it.

Our tour guide was EXTREMELY knowledgeable about Frank Lloyd Wright's life, his work, the couple who commissioned this house etc. It was extremely informative - a little known jewel in the Queen City. Make sure to arrive early at the museum and get your tickets ahead of time. They transport you and will give you a short history of manchester... More

The Zimmerman House was a great sight to see. Roger, our tour guide, was very informative. It was neat to see the home as it was originally designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. This is worth checking out if you're a fan of the work of Frank Lloyd Wright. It was very cold when I went and part of the tour... More

The docents here are well-trained and knowledgeable about FLW and his amazing work. The tour is really more of an "experience" because you get to learn the ins and the outs of the space in a smaller, more intimate tour provided by the Curriee Museum. This has shot to the top of my favorite FLW structures!

This was our first Frank Lloyd Wright house. If you are at all interested in history, design or architecture then this is a must see. I won't go on about Frank Lloyd Wright, apart from saying that the guy was an architectural and design genius, and that this house must be seen. The tour meets at the Currier Museum, which... More

But could he design a house! The ;house is worth a long visit, and is a unique example of Wright's philosophy of design. It is incredible to me that the fabrics Wright used are still in extraordinary condition. Admittedly, the ceilings are a little low, but as I say, Wright was short. But a short genius!

Didn't go inside or see he back because we did it as a drive by. Wasn't interested in paying the price for a non-typical Prairie Style FLW design.

Visited this home last weekend. You must book reservations at least several days in advance to view the house as only a few people are allowed per visit and tours are limited. (No kids under 7 allowed and no public bathrooms at the house). The price of the tour includes admission to the Currier Museum, but special exhibitions at the... More

Were able to do a walk through of the house for about 1-1/2 hours. The docents were very informative and the house was worth seeing if you like that kind of thing. There is also another FLW house on the same street, however, it is not shown.

We visited when visiting the Art Museum. Well presented and worth a visit. We discovered another house just down the road that was even more interesting in its design although you could not see around it.
