This is a very interesting old building. They have made great use of the whole building. There's a restaurant and bar on an upper level. Nice displays downstairs and the building is very well maintained. A good example of a Frank Lloyd Wright building.

This building is Frank Lloyd Wright's only recognized skyscraper. The art center isn't large but quite interesting. There are many nice exhibits on display quite often. It is within walking distance of Bartlesville Community Center, which is recognized as one of the finest performing arts halls in the country. The modern architectural design was the vision of William Wesley Peters,... More

It's not a huge museum, but the Arts Center always hosts interesting exhibits -- well worth a visit.

This place is really cool. The story is even better. Go if you are in the area. This is an amazing use of copper. We have explored several Frank LLoyd Wright buildings- he is a true master.

Went to Price Tower after an event at the Bartlesville Community Center. Wright's only skyscraper built with the furniture built and installed at the time of construction. Iconic building worth the visit for anyone interested in architecture. An elevator ride to the Copper Bar for a drink provides a great view.

Loved the building and the decor. Gallery is airy and laid out artfully. Great gift shop with lots of Frank Lloyd Wright books and designed items including clothing, home decor, and gift items.

Frank Lloyd Wright skyscraper on the prairie--such a weird, wonderful experience. There is a sense of melancholy about the place: it feels lonely up in the rooms with the wind whistling through the copper louvres outside. I wish I could have seen the building when it was fully in use by the community, with offices and apartments full of people.... More

If you are into Frank Lloyd Wright or architecture this is a “must see” attraction. This was his only skyscraper and it was built more on FLW’s idea of what a skyscraper should be rather than what Mr. Price wanted. The art galleries on the first floor are large and spacious, these were shops originally. When I went they were... More

I was just nine years old when We were introduced to being called "pipeline brats". My stepdad, Hermit Vestal worked for H.C. Price out of Bartlesville, OK. We were always told that the main headquarters was a big tall (money-Green) building and I could hardly wait to see it. Well, we traveled all over the USA, but I never saw... More
