The house and studio are not at all what you would expect from the outside. The volunteer tour guide was friendly and very knowledgable and encouraged questions. The neighbourhood was beautiful. I highly recommend this tour even if you know nothing about Frank Lloyd Wright!

Being guided through Wright's house and studio enabled me to appreciate his genius - his sensitivity to the experience of being inside a built structure and his design of all the elements that contribute to that experience. We had previously visited other Wright buildings and fully enjoyed seeing this space. The guide was informative, answered questions, and was even willing... More

This is a landmark and I even became a docent for Wright Plus. Easy to get around and interesting history. Nice gift shop.

The Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio were very interesting. Our guide did a great job of explaining his style and history. I highly recommend a visit to this quaint, lovely part of Chicago. The Oak Park shops and information Center are certainly worth a visit, also.

Not to miss. The neighborhood itself is a gem. The house and studio are extraordinary because Wright not only designed them, but lived in them.

Loved our visit to Oak Park and this home. We walked from the house to downtown passing by Frank Lloyd Wright creations and ate lunch at a great spot . The house was so interesting and the story behind it was fascinating for us as we were all Realtors!

As a tour guide from England with a love of architecture, this was one of my "must see" places while in Chicago. Access was easy on the Green Line. It's a good idea to get a copy of the self guided tour of the area from the Chicago Architecture Foundation shop downtown as the walk from the El station to... More

As the title suggests, I feel the prices are a bit high ($17 for the home/studio tour and $15 for the self guided neighborhood walking tour). In my opinion, they should at least offer a discount if you buy both. That aside, my partner and I took my niece and her husband here while they were visiting Chicago. I had... More

Tour was very informative and very leisurely paced. Our guide was awesome! The home was beautiful and was incredible to see and hear the history. I live in town and have been saying I was going to do this and am making a day of being a tourist in my own town. Advice: buy tickets in advance, book the first... More
