    Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio
    Stop: 60 minutes - Admission included
    In 1889 Wright completed the construction of a small two-story residence in Oak Park on the Western edges of Chicago. The building was the first over which Wright exerted complete artistic control. Designed as a home for his family, the Oak Park residence was a site of experimentation for the young architect during the twenty-year period he lived there. Wright revised the design of the building multiple times, continually refining ideas that would shape his work for decades to come.

Anyone who appreciates architecture, art, engineering, and/or design will appreciate this tour! FLW's clever approach to his craft is balanced with his personal home life. Fascinating details and historical tidbits are explained by docent tour guide. One flight of stairs up and back down are part of tour. Our teen and pre-teen really enjoyed this tour. Do not book tour tickets through Tripavisor; instead, book through actual FLW website for accurate pricing and availability. Only 9 tickets are allowed to be purchased online for each tour time slot, but tour group was larger with likely walk-ins. Ample free parking on residential side streets (just note parking signs).

Over the years, my wife and I have visited several of famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright's famous homes, including the Robie House and Falling Water. So it was only natural that we would want to visit his home and studio in west suburban Oak Park. After all, we live in downtown Chicago, only a half-hour drive to Wright's historic residence at 428 Forest Avenue and his studio at 951 Chicago Avenue. Wright purchased the property and built the home in 1889 with a loan of $5,000 from his employer, Louis Sullivan. While living in the home and raising six children, Wright developed his career to become one of the most influential architects and designers of the 20th century. The home was extensively remodeled in 1895. Among other things, the kitchen was enlarged and converted into a dining room, a new kitchen was added to the back of the house and the upstairs nursery was expanded. In 1898, another major additions was made when the studio and connecting corridor were built. In the studio, Wright advanced the Prairie School of Architecture and designed many notable structures, including the Robie House. The property was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972 and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1976. It is operated as a museum by the Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust, which hosts an informative hour-long house walk of the home and studio. It's a truly fascinating experience to walk in the steps of a genius.

To be honest, I wasn't expecting much. I didn't know very much about Frank Lloyd Wright, but I love touring homes and my husband suggested, so I thought why not? This did not disappoint! The home was beautiful and each room was so thoughtfully done. I kept having to remind me myself that it was all done more than 100 years ago!

We arrived 30 minutes after our timed ticket (due to Chicago traffic and our uber driver who more interested in talking instead of following the gps). Luckily, the next tour group wasn't full so we were able to hop in with them. Anne was our tour guide and she was absolutely phenomenal. She answered all of the questions and incredibly knowledgeable about FLW. You can tell she has a passion for his work and we felt that the entire time. We ended up doing the self-guided walking tour as well. We were given handheld devices and a map. The house were easy to find since they were all on the same street.

We had a such a great time and worth the trip! Thank you Anne, Darryl & Michelle!

I'd like to note that it did take a while to get an uber after the tour (about 30 mins wait), since it's not in a popular area. So keep that in mind if that's how you get there.

This was a highlight of our trip!! It was an excellent tour. The guide and the entire staff were kind, friendly, and knowledgeable. The history and architecture were presented to allow everyone on the tour to gain more understanding of his amazing talent. The neighborhood and walking tour were amazing also. They also took the time to speak with you as an individual. Definitely make this a destination. IF you take the train from the airport use the center transfer station and switch trains to get closer to the area. Oh and eat local, the restaurants and cafes were great!

Really enjoyed the tour; it was neat to see a house that Frank Lloyd Wright used to explore some of his ideas. The tour was a good length and had good information; a good mix of architectural information and personal anecdotes about Frank Lloyd Wright himself. I was pleased that the tour stuck to its hour-length and never overwhelmed me with information.

The grounds were my favorite part-the trees were spectacular. The gift shop was well-stocked and the staff were friendly.

We really enjoyed our tour of FLW's home and studio in Oak Park. It was interesting to see his early ideas and the approaches that he used in later renovations. His style was completely original and self taught. On a personal level he was a jerk but he was extremely talented.

This is the real deal on a Frank Lloyd Wright Experience. It is nestled practically in the heart of downtown Oak Park IL. The guides are amazing. The home and studio take you right back to his roots and rather further complicated subsequent future. You going to have to climb a few stairs, but, not too many. It is cool. Don't go too crazy in the gift store, as I always do.

I grew up in Oak Park but moved away after HS. All the time living there I never went on this tour. I finally did and loved every minute of it. FLW was a genius and this place is super cool.

It's well worth a visit.

We had 1/2-day in the Chicago area (which we have previously visited many times) and, as FLW fans, chose to spend it in Oak Park. There is a cluster of about 25 homes in a 6-8 square-block area, surrounding the Home and Studio. You can google a number of good walking-tour maps to show you the street addresses of these privately-owned homes (which you can see either by foot or by car, since only the exteriors are viewable). The Home and Studio complex is a classic example of his visionary work. Tours are available, though at the time we visited, visitor numbers were somewhat limited for social distancing. You might consider buying your tour tickets in advance. Allow about 2.5- 3 hours for your visit.
