“moving”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

I am a great fan of frank Lloyd Wright so enjoy all his work. the temple was amazing in its design and although I didn't feel a certain type of comfort I do in a church it was still worth seeing.

“Lovely!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Small and short tour but wonderful. Frank never ceases to inspire me. Went here for a self-tour but would love to come to mass sometime just to take it all in.

“great first stop in Oak Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

This building will amaze and thrill you. I love when beauty and history collides. It has the advantage of being across from the very lovely and very new Main Library in Oak Park which is also worth a visit.

“Amazing Interior Space”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

The temple is very austere from the outside but amazingly light, airy and open on the inside. The spaces are great to be in. It's a pleasure to explore the interior spaces. I enjoyed just sitting in a pew and admiring the architecture. Anyone with an interest in architecture would thoroughly enjoy a visit.
