The tour of Wright's home and studio in Oak Park was wonderful. Wright's home was designed very early in his career and unlike his other works, has an antique feel. The studio is perhaps the most beautiful interior I have ever seen. It shows his genius. The tour provides insight into Wright's life and work and should be experienced by... More

Very interesting and informed tour by volunteers around the first designed house and home of the reknowned architect, Frank Lloyd Wright. Especially liked the space saving location of the grand piano

Having been a fan of Frank Lloyd Wright's architecture this was a must see place for us to visit. Our guide Sandy was very informative about the house and studio and did her best to answer any additional questions we had. The house and studio were cleverly designed and contain many original pieces. There are also a number of other... More

This was FLW first home designed and built in 1889 but looks many decades newer than that; fascinating guided tour, supplemented by a walking tour of nearby later houses he designed for clients

If you are a Frank Lloyd Wright fan or are interested in architecture, this is the place for you. FLW lived and worked her for about 20 years. You can see how he was always adding on to his home and studio. There are some very unique aspects to this home, just as the piano hidden above stairs leading to... More

The Wright Home is one of FLW's earliest building/homes and it shows how is style developed and grew. Also the home literally grew over time and shows the evolving style. I have to say that the studio was by far my favorite part of the house (save the gift shop) for its use of innovative styles, patterns and designs. Sue... More

A great tour guide and tour of this awesome home and studio. Would recommend taking a cab to get to and from because it will save you a lot of time. Awesome neighbor to walk but it was way too hot and humid the day I visited.

I'm not a big Frank Lloyd Wright fan but his original home in Chicago is quite interesting and located on a tree-lined street of beautiful homes. The street facing the front of the home, has other houses deigned by Wright and is worth a walk to not only see those but other great designed homes.

My husband has been a fan of FLW for a long time so he was very excited about the tour. Our tour guide Heidi was very knowledgeable and pleasant. She gave great background about his personal life and how it influenced his architectural style. Also, we did a walking tour of homes in the area that included audio. The guided... More

Living in Oak Park, I've been on the tour a few times. Each guide gives a different perspective and I always learn something new.
