“may house”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

we went for the house tour because on sundays it is supposed to be open to the public. it was not. when we called the number on the sign a recording said not open on holiday weekends. this should have been stated on the website where most people get their info.

“Beautiful restoration”

If you are a Frank Lloyd Wright fan you will certainly appreciate the Meyer May House in Grand Rapids. It is wonderful restoration work. They stayed true to Wright's original vision. There were beautiful original Wright furniture as well.

“classic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

A 30 min. video lets you see renovations and history of this classic Frank L. Wright house. The tour is hosted by a docent who is very knowledgeable about history and details. Allow 2 hours but worth every minute.

“Nice tour, great house”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

They did a very nice job of renovating a beautiful Frank Lloyd Wright house. There was an informative video before the tour and then we went through the house in a group with a docent. It is a free tour so it is definitely worth the effort.
