The home and studio tour is very informative. If you love FLR architecture you will love this. After the tour, I recommend getting the FLR tour map of Oak Park and walking around the neighborhood. You will not be disappointed.

Having visited 2 other FLW sites (Chicago and Arizona) this one exceeded my expectations. It reflects Wright's early career and family life and is well worth a visit. The house is no handicapped accessible and stair climbing is necessary. The docents are well prepared and...More

Good introductory tour led by knowledgeable docent--Home/studio was interesting for those already familiar with Wright, but information never too technical for the casual tourist. I definitely think they should offer deeper discounts when you combine multiple tours----I would have loved to taken this tour along...More

The 'el' Blue Line goes to Oak Park from downtown, getting off at Harlem Avenue. but the studio is about a mile or so from the subway station. Either a healthy walk or a short uber ride away.
