There is nothing that prepares you for the first view of FW as you approach on the woodsy path. Yes, it is stunning, yes it is an amazing structure, yes there is nothing like it, certainly in the US. When we were there, the house was still undergoing structural renovations (Mr. Wright was somewhat casual about the opportunistic path of... More

A Frank Lloyd Wright - designed residence for the Kaufman family of Pittsburgh PA, this was a rare sight in the middle of Pennsylvania. It's hard to imagine the labor created by the design - and location - of this place ... : a nearly 100%, cantilevered house over a flowing creek - completed in the mid-30's and at a... More

Made a special trip to see this marvelous home. Worth every minute of your time. Built as a private residence this museum shows Wright at his best. Best views ate actually from the outside but the tour is quite interesting as well. Be prepared to walk a bit

My mom and I visited Pittsburgh over Labor Day weekend and decided to drive an hour or so to Fallingwater. When we pulled in there was a sign saying "tours sold out for today". Luckily someone had just cancelled and they had an opening for 4pm (it was 2pm) so we had to wait 2 hrs but lucked out. That... More

We went on a motorcycle ride to use our Groupon tickets to Kentuck Knob. We decided to make a day of it and include Fallingwater. We were not disappointed. We arrived at Fallingwater and were amazed at the number of out of state license plates and even a few from Canada. We were early for our tour time but was... More

Our visit to Fallingwater was my friend's idea, but it was worth the hefty entrance fee to see an design treasure and the proceeds go to upkeep of the house. The genius of Frank Lloyd Wright is obvious in all areas of the house design and placement. Our guide was very knowledgeable and the setting is gorgeous.

Had wanted to visit Fallingwater for well over 20 years! And just learned about Kentuck Knob, but both of these places are truly amazing architectural works of the genius Frank Lloyd Wright!! Wow, just wow!! Both places were just breathtaking. They were a bit physically challenging to walk through, so just keep that in mind if you have walking/breathing issues.... More

We visited Fallingwater on a misty, drizzly day which, rather than detract from the experience, seemed to enhance it due to the significance of water in the house's design. Our docent was knowledgeable though reticent to discuss some of the darker sides of the Kaufmann family; the owners of the house. (Suggest you read up a bit on them prior... More

If you love Frank Lloyd Wright - if you love architecture - if you love art - you MUST visit this home. This home was so far ahead of its time that it must have bee totally shocking to all who saw it back then. The restoration of the home is just as amazing. Just beware of the terraces -... More
