It's worth the effort to see. The word unique is applicable in many ways.

What you leave the Price Tower with is a much better understanding of what the "vision" of the future was in the late 1950's, early 1960's before social unrest demanded center stage. By today's standards, the spaces are unlivable, the designs uncomfortable. But that doesn't matter because the existence of the building crystallizes the vision Frank Lloyd Wright had for... More

The building is simply wonderful. It is one of Frank Lloyd Wright's last projects in the mid 1950's. Unfortunately the museum and restaurant were closed the day i stopped by.

I see from others that the tour is pricey but is it the inside our the outside of Frank Lloyd Wright's work that you want to see. I enjoyed taking in this piece of work from a far... the parking lot across the street and it was FREE!

And by that I mean a bit expensive ($15/adult), but it lasted an hour or so. Went to multiple floors, saw multiple rooms. If you are a Frank Lloyd Wright fan or just a fan of unusual architecture, you will enjoy it. Floor plans, art, fixtures, furniture, exterior, etc. are all unusual and noteworthy. Lots of 30 and 60 degree... More

Wright's design is limited to the viewing and his artistic elements, not the known practical elements of a building. Examples: all stairs seen had different step heights and tread widths (one lead up to a closed door, w/ no landing!), the elevators held maybe five people if they sucked in their collective guts, some spaces allowed standing room only for...

While motoring west on US Route 60, we came through Bartlesville OK and suddenly noticed the Price Tower, a flashback to University days many years ago. There it was, the one and only sky-scraper by the great Frank Lloyd Wright. Odd, with strange geometry like most of his later work, but distinctive and fascinating in detail. A real refresher after... More

I have always loved FLW's work. He is brilliant. And living an hour and a half from the Price Tower I have always been in love with it. I finally was able to take the tour and it is simply stunning. Once you find out the history about the building and the design behind it, you will be forever in... More

The building is a fantastic "miniature" of Frank Lloyd Wrights only designed skyscraper. Built at about one third it's intended size it is still fantastic. The angles and thought process of how the structure is even engineered is marvelous. Don't miss this stop if you have any interest in architecture at all. The revolving art displays are a nice addition.

Drove for about and hour outside of Tulsa to see Frank Lloyd Wright's only skyscraper. Odd little building in the middle of nowhere that has the tiniest little luxury apartments in the world I believe. Its truly a step back in time. I completely enjoyed every second touring the building.

See this place! If you like Frank Lloyd Wright you will appreciate it! If you like triangles you will be amazed at what they can do for design!
