Ok, so i will be upfront on this....I lived 2 blocks away from this house and walked past it daily. At the time, I knew it was a FLW house, but never really appreciated it for what it was. I decided to visit my old...More

Despite I haven't had a chance to be on a tour inside of a Robie House, I have viewed it from outside and liked it very much as yet another masterpiece of Frank Lloyd Wright in his "Prairie-style" period. 2 other examples of this style...More

Very disappointing. The tour guide lady spoke quickly and quietly despite someone asking her to speak slowly. She was also quite cold as well as unkowledgeable, not sure the other guides were any better. The house itself isn’t decorated and it is under renovation so...More

The Robie House is regarded as architect and designer Frank Lloyd Wright's masterpiece, internationally renowned as the greatest example of Prairie School architecture, the first architectural style considered uniquely American. Without this house, much of modern architecture as we know it today might not exist....More

The Frank Lloyd Wright house and studio is wonderful. Great tour with lots of interesting facts about him and his work. His studio was designed just as he did everything else, with a non cluttered place and a place for everything!

Approximately one third of the house is being refurbished. At a minimum there should be a reduction in the tour pricing until the work is completed.

The house is one of the most important of Frank Lloyd Wright's Chicago structures and is well worth a visit. The foundation is renovating much of the house, but enough remains to be interesting and our guide was engaged and informative. Enjoyed it a lot....More

The Robie House is a truly iconic architectural landmark and needs no recommendation from me. It is definitely worth a pilgrimage, however my only reason for posting this review and giving it 4/5 rather than 5/5 is that at the time of writing (Nov 2018)...More

Touring the house and studio is worth the money but please know that you are rushed through the tour. Our guide was very overbearing, asking us to guess what he was thinking and talking loudly when you didn't get the answer right or didn't move...More

We've been to Robie twice and saw something new each time. There is some remodeling going on in the kitchen/dinning room so I can't wait to go back to see it. You should see all of Frank LLoyd Wright's architecture in Chicago.

Elevator is at the 57th St station which should make life a bit easier with a stroller. ENJOY!!
