    well worth a detour
    frank lloyd wright architecture is always a head turner, very cerebral. the fact that this home in particular has been packed up, shipped across the country, and then meticulously rebuilt makes it well worth a visit. iconic it it’s time, and still to this day.

    What a gem!
    My wife and I have visited other Frank Lloyd Wright houses and couldn't miss this one while in Bentonville. It was originally constructed in New Jersey, but on a flood plain, and suffered some damage. A couple was attempting to restore it, but the damage continued, so they contacted Crystal Bridges to see if they had interest, and the entire home was disassembled, labeled, shipped to Arkansas and reassembled. We opted for a free self-guided tour, and reserved a tour time online the day before. Guests are provided with a hand-held which narrates the tour, room by room. The house is beautifully restored and the design is impeccable. The setting on the grounds of the Crystal Bridges Museum is perfect.

    A wonderful museum and special house: both worth the visit!!
    This Frank Lloyd Wright house is on the property of The Crystal Bridges Museum, our favorite regional art museum, and we were so thrilled that this special house and the museum are both free to visit. The museum learned that this house was in danger of being flooded so they moved it, piece by piece, and rebuilt it on the museum grounds. If you are a fan of Frank Lloyd Wright’s architecture or live to see interesting houses, you should plan to visit the Bachman-Wilson house.

Great story....this Frank Lloyd Wright designed house was saved by Crystal Bridges after its owners offered it to the museum in a effort to save it from the recurring flooding in its original New Jersey site. For FLW fans, it is a must-see site, but it is very similar to other FLW houses. Unfortunately the house is not open for tours during these COVID times; the furnishings appear to be under wraps at this time. Given that there are signs to stay off the grass, you can't walk up to look in the windows along the back of the house. So all you can do it take photos from a limited number of vantage points. That's why the Average rating.

We had to ask several employees at Crystal Bridges where to find this house, and they sent us in different directions. Finally we happened upon the trail that led to it. Our tickets were for 10 a.m. and we barely made it on time, and then we told the girl who was taking the tickets that we had left something in the car on the parking lot, she said 10 o'clock means 10 o'clock and we couldn't take the self-guided tour if we took five minutes to go back and get it. No pictures are allowed in the house, but it is interesting to learn about the what and why are behind this style of architecture. Only the first floor is open to the general public because the staircase that leads to the second floor isn't stable enough to handle the general public .

This free tour was short but well worth it! Sign up for your reservation time the day before if you want a specific time as it fills up given the small space. You have about 15 minutes inside with a self-guided audio recording to tell you about this beautiful home. We are glad we visited.

The house is a beautiful Frank Lloyd Wright house and beautifully maintained. Just remember to get your ticket, yes it's free but only a certain number of people can enter at one time. Once you have your ticket make sure you are there at the exact time. I was there 15 minutes early and was told to come back. For me, no big deal other than the fact that it was told in a rather clipped manner. The grounds around the house are beautiful and have several options for nature walks around it.

This one hour tour is a very educational event that provides insight into the architecture of FLW. The care that Crystal Bridges took to move and reconstruct this amazing house is a tribute to their commitment to maintaining the integrity of this beautiful structure. A must see - inside and out.

This was the first FLW house we have visited. The form and functionality was really something, and the audio tour really highlights the artistic nature of the home. It did feel a little like a camper or an RV which was strange. The really surprising part was the cinder block construction; we were not expecting that.

This house was moved here from New Jersey due to flooding. It's on the grounds of Crystal Bridges and part of their campus. Make sure you get tickets even though it is free. Another FLW Usonian Gym. You can get a hand held devise to listen to the tour. Maybe a 15-20 minute tour but worth the time.
