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

Like a lot of Wright's projects, it's finally found a deep-pocketed trust to keep it up, as the maintenance on these historic properties must be staggering, especially after falling into disuse during the decades before being genuinely appreciated. We learned (as you will) that Wright's...More

I enjoyed touring the Hollyhock house. I've toured his Home and studio in Oak Park and Robie house in Chicago so it was nice to see a different style.

It's a shame that so many people in LA haven't heard of Hollyhock, much less visited...though selfishly, it's great since you never have to fight for free parking or the perfect spot for the views of downtown LA, the Hollywood sign and Griffith observatory. This...More

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.
