Perched on a rock above a gushing waterfall, this historic house was built for a Pittsburgh family by architect Frank Lloyd Wright in the 1930s, ingeniously designed to blend harmoniously into the tranquil and beautiful woods around it.

I've been wanting to see this place since I was a little kid and it did not disappoint. I was awestruck by its beauty, coherence and serenity. What a privilege it must have been to live here, but glad it is open to the public now so millions can experience the greatest house of the 20th century. I showed up... More

We had the opportunity to take a 2 hr in-depth tour of Frank Lloyd Wright's house - Falling Water. Anyone with knowledge of this house knows its uniqueness. But even reading about it does not give you the opportunity to fully appreciate what all went into the design and building of this truly unique home. To take a tour gives... More

Not the kind of location you will stumble upon or go to....on the way to someplace else - HOWEVER - so worth the little effort to go to Fallingwater! Beautiful grounds to walk around before and after your tour.....a lovely café/coffee shop on site, a small but wonderful museum and a great gift shop offering something for everyone. The tours...

Interesting, beautiful. Took the $25 tour which was good, but seemed to focus more on the social aspects of the house than the Robie tour in Chicago which was more architecture focused- not to say there was no architectural info. House was impressive. Wish I had taken a slower, more detailed tour in which photos are permitted. All staff very... More

We did two tours, the sunset tour (expensive but worth it if you can afford it) and the landscape tour. With the sunset tour most of the rest of the visitors have left and you have the place to yourself. You have much more time to investigate the house and get the feel of what it what it would have...

This house has been on our bucket list for a number of years. It is quite out of the way for us coming from Dorset in the UK. However, we decided to make the effort this year and are so pleased we did. The house is surely one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s masterpieces being built over the Bear Run waterfall... More

We bought tickets on line several weeks app front, as it was recommended, however it was not needed. We had tickets for 12pm tour and when we realized we will not make it we called the customer service at Falling Water and they told us that whatever time we come it will be ok. THey will just make a note... More

This was on my bucket list and it fulfilled my greatest expectations. The grand vision of FLW was carried out to the most minute details. It is rare: both a sensory delight and an intellectual tour de force. It can really make you feel how a space can change your life, even to the way you breathe. Well deserving of... More

If you are interested in architecture or design and in this area you should definitely do this tour. It exceeded my expectations. Tour guide was great and shared very interesting history about the house and Frank Lloyd Wright. We went to an early tour in the off season in pouring rain and it was still very busy. Highly recommend booking... More
