Impressive house
Sep 2021
Took the public tour which included an introductory video telling about the history of the house. Needed to reserve tour online in advance but the tour is free. The windows in the front room are beautiful and there is a colorful garden behind the house. Highly recommend if you are a fan of Frank Loyd Wright or historic houses.

Free tour of an architectural treasure
Sep 2021 • Couples
If you love Frank Lloyd Wright, this is a must see! Steelcase purchased and restored this truly amazing house, a masterpiece of architecture. Budget about 2 hours for the tour. Book in advance. Tours are free.

The tour begins with a video on the restoration. It’s a little slow but provides some good background. Then, the tour of the house begins with the exterior followed by the interior. We had a retired Steelcase exec on our tour who knew far more about the house than did our docent.

Staff: volunteer staff overall nice; some more knowledgeable than others

Cleanliness: Excellent

Public bathrooms: excellent cleanliness

Beautiful FLW house, I'm ready to move in!
Sep 2021 • Couples
This is a beautifully restored FLW house. The film before the tour was excellent. It provided a lot of information on the restoration and history of the house. The house is in perfect condition. You can see how it looked when the May family lived there.

Historic District

On the corner of a busy street with tours only two days a week. The architecture is undeniably FLW. Easy access just park at the house next door where tours are given and you can roam the outdoor premises.

First Class FLW Site
Jun 2021
We have visited a dozen or so FLW sites, and this is at our near the top of the list. Restored to the last nail with precision and care, this FLW masterpiece needs to be a "must do" in Grand Rapids. Be sure to get reservations. The docents know a great deal about FLW and more about this home. A real treat. And its FREE!

Frank Lloyd Wright
May 2021
It was fascinating to visit a house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. The detail and unique additions show that his designs were way before his time. My only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is because the docent who led the tour was not super engaging.

Not my favorite Wright house but an enjoyable visit
May 2021
The tour guide was interesting. I would not want Wright to design my house, I want to hang pictures where I want LOL. Some intriguing design features.

Super tour of a site worth visiting
Apr 2021
We came on a rainy weekday and this was the perfect activity. We had an excellent, small tour and learned a lot about the house and the architect and the family.

Unexpected Gem
Oct 2019
When my family went to visit my niece in Grand Rapids, the last thing I expected to see was a Frank Lloyd Wright house. We had so much fun touring the historic houses in the city, and found this gem to be so educational and interesting. If you are ever in Grand Rapids, it's really worth your time!!
