Exceptional architecture
May 2021 • Friends
We were staying not too far away and a friend had told us not to miss the Frank Lloyd Wright museum that this is.
Wonderful experience. You must reserve online first and pay ahead of time and either print out or have bar codes ready at check in at the desk. ($40 per person)
Plenty of “guides” around for questions. they operate self guided tours using your own phone and headphones but do have ipods available if you do not have a smart phone.
Nice gift shop at the end of the tour. Good views of the surrounding landscape from the tour. There are also human guided tours available at select times (See website)
Worth the $40 each as it also pays the bills there.

Spectacular!

There really are no more superlatives to describe this place. FLW’s thoughtful combination of form, function, and art must be experienced. The property is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site and very well maintained. Great gift shop. It would have been better to not have the subdivision houses nearby to destroy the view, but that’s modern life.

Talliesin West was Frank Lloyd Wright’s third home that he built fort himself. The long lines and functionality lend themselves to the desert by inviting coolness and putting the view in front of the building. Our tour of the home was very interesting. The guide discussed why buildings were built the way that they were and emphasized the personalities that impacted the design.

Frank Lloyd Wright was a future thinking architect. He managed to incorporate nature in his design and building process.

Interesting property
Apr 2021
Took an audio tour of this fabulous architectural creation and really enjoyed learning about the history of the property and experiencing the vibes in the various rooms and outdoor areas. I only wish I had paused longer in certain areas to take it all in.

The only negative was that it was a little difficult to get transportation when leaving - tried Uber and a taxi company and was finally able to get a ride via Lyft.

Natural Tour Guide and Just the Right Length of Time
Apr 2021
I visited with my husband and father and left the tweens at home (that was the right call). Our tour guide gave us great information about Frank and the history of the home. I get apprehensive about tours some times, but our guide was informative without being scripted and the pace of the tour was perfect. Highly recommend to anyone in the area interested in architecture and history.

Interesting and great views

First time to visit a Frank Lloyd Wright home. Interesting story of location choice, materials used, design ideas and establishment of his architectural school. Guided tour lasts little over 1 hour.

Very inspiring and interesting site! Each room was unique. The story behind the rooms and areas on the site were personalized with stories of Frank Lloyd Wright.
The site itself is set far from the road. Uber and Lyft rides can be difficult to come by. Fortunately for us, Sue, an employee at the site was sweet enough to give us a ride at the end of our tour, Closing time. We are extremely grateful to her.

Worth the visit!

Frank Lloyd RIGHT!!
Mar 2021
We thought that the audio tour was very informative, and it was just the right amount of information. It allowed for people to spread out for good social distancing and COVID-19 protection. Masks were also required and enforced. They have iPads with the audio tour so if you don't have a mobile device they can lend you one. The tour went to the outdoor courtyard, FLW's office, the living room, the reflecting pool, the studio, the theater, and many more rooms. The staff was helpful and friendly. They have a nice gift shop with unique Frank Lloyd Wrighty items for sale. Make sure to reserve a tour for the time you'd like because you can't just drive over and walk right in without a reservation.

Must see historic cultural site if you’re in Phoenix. Even the audio tour is fantastic. Even if you’re not a fan of Frank Lloyd Wright, this amazing winter camp for his architectural practice has attracted artists, designers, architects and luminaries since Wright purchased it in the 39’s. Go find out why!
