We love Frank Lloyd Wright, and on this vacation we've managed to visit two more of his works. This one was more spectacular, but the guided tour at the other was better. To fully experience Taliesin, you must go through the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation...More

Wright's buildings are the most people-friendly you'll ever see. Excellent lines that are rarely at right-angles. Imaginative use of local materials, Great historical accounts of Wright & his architecture school & his life there.

I don't think so. The interesting parts were historical about the time period and informational about Wright's life and work. I don't think kids would be interested in that. The Insight tour was about 1.5 hours and didn't... More
