For any Frank Lloyd Wright fan, this little gem in the middle of a Los Angeles park is a must-see. It's a self-guided tour, with docents scattered around the house to answer your questions. It's been beautifully renovated and lovingly preserved.

This 1915-18 Frank Lloyd Wright masterpiece is very worth seeing. The interior is gorgeous but not allowed to be photographed. The Docents are knowledgeable and welcoming. I was here about ten years ago and back then, visitors could walk into all the rooms however now,...More

This was a fascinating house featuring a great deal of crafted concrete moulding both interior and exterior. The docents were most professional. We loved the woodwork that was matched to the sameaztec-inspired theme. This was worth a tour for those interested in design, even if...More

We made a self guided visit to the house. There was a booklet fillet with information to pick up at the entrance so we could find out about each room but the several docents were very keen to provide further information to us. We spent...More

I purchased the last two tickets for the interior/exterior tour a few days in advance, so it appears to be necessary to book prior. The tour lasted approximately an hour and our docent was informative and helpful. The house itself is stunning and seems to...More

Nice FLW house in a nice park. Easy to find and easy to park. The docents are plentiful, knowledgeable and friendly. But... Most of the house is roped off. You can't see anything! The self-guided tour grinds to a standstill! Short description of my visit...More

I'm giving this a 3 because you are basically only allowed to walk in the entrance and look around. You can't enter any rooms and you don't see most of the house. Just the front. What they have done is great. The living room is...More

If you love FLW architecture this house is probably on your to do list. It was a great home but the access was very limited. Most rooms are blocked off and you can’t see many features of the house. The staff are very accommodating and...More

Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie
stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day,
tourists flock here from around the world to see the
iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to
catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close.
Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas
the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and
hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night

Plenty of parking. The entrance is near the garage so get as close to the driveway to the house as you can (on top of the hill).

The self-guided tours have no time limits (except at closing time). You can remain in the house as long as you want.
