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.

Not one of Frank's greatest efforts.In fact it was much more a student project than one of Frank's.Tour guides do their best to talk it up using pseudo architectural speak.All about diagonals and in and out.Blah Blah Blah.Worth it nonethe less.

The tour was informative and the fellow tourists were a wide mix of people with varied interpretations and levels of knowledge about FLW. The docent was informative but a bit over the top for me but probably works well for a crowd of school children. The house was interesting and certainly something my friends and I enjoyed discussing later (some... More

I have visited many of Wrights houses over the years. I am always amazed at the insight to the utilized space, natural light, and built-in furniture. He reads the owners, and builds a space to suit them. In this space he uses part of the L/R for use as a music entertainment area. The grounds blend in so nicely.

Took this tour on a dreary Memorial Day Afternoon. Know very little about FLW so wanted to see one of his designs. I was extremely disappointed in the house as I found it dark and very enclosed. . The passageways were very narrow, bedrooms, baths and kitchen tiny and the furniture built for midgets. How the Zimmerman Family lived there... More

This tour starts at the Currier Museum and you are bused to the house. The group is intentionally small, as the house is compact. I was impressed with all the small details that make a small house seem larger. The docents were well informed and could get the message across. The way the house was situated allows you to ignore...

This is such a great tour. You get to see this rather small Frank Lloyd Wright house, and imagine and understand how it was actually lived in. You learn a lot about his insistence on complete unity of design, from everything to the silverware to the art work. You get to experience the sensitivity to the landscaping, and the aesthetics....

The house is kept as it was when Zimmermans lived there. The tour gave you a good feeling what it was like to live in a FLW home. It was well worth the trip to see it. I think if you read Small WonderAZ's report on the FLW Zimmerman house, you can get all the info you may need. I... More
