Went with a Wright enthusiast although I wasn’t familiar with his work. Nevertheless it was very interesting to see the turn of the century architecture. This was his personal home and one of his earlier works from what I understand. Those familiar with his work...More

Great tour and visit to the first home built by Wright where his legacy would begin and continue. Not the typical exterior of his signature style but the interior and windows has his name written all over it. It is a short one hour tour...More

The tour was very worthwhile. Our volunteer guide lives nearby and was very knowledgeable. The Wright home/studio is well preserved and allowed us to learn much about his turbulent and fascinating life. The street level tour afterwards wasn't as informative, but there are many beautiful...More

Franck Llyod Wright's contributions on architecture of the last century are obviously indisputable. The house is obviously not average nor less. Not going to see his house, not discovering Oak Park would obviously be a huge mistake, even if it is about an hour by...More

Wonderful restoration of Frank Lloyd Wright's first home and studio. The restoration is wonderful, tour was informative. However, our guide, ______ella, although very knowledgable, was arrogant, condescending and never asked if we had questions. She continually told us to 'not touch anything' even though none...More

Yes, we visited on a Saturday morning of a holiday weekend and no issues. As the day got later was much harder to find parking. Visit in the morning is my suggestion!
