Visited with a group of friends after reading "Loving Frank". Reservations and tickets are done through the Currier Museum and a small bus takes you to the Zimmerman House at your appointed time. There is also a "drive by" of another nearby Lloyd Wright house. The staff was very knowledgeable about the house and architecture and also share anecdotal information... More

We are dedicated fans of Frank Lloyd Wright and were thrilled with the opportunity to tour a house that he designed. The tour guide had so much information and lots of insight into Frank Lloyd Wright and the house. We highly recommend this tour.

We did this on our own. It would have been better if we did the tour. It was cool and my kids 11, 13 and 19 enjoyed it - we then when to the museum

This house is a superlative piece of Frank Lloyd Wright architecture. The docents are most knowledgeable as to architecture, FLW's theory and philosophy and present all most entertainingly. Plan your visit for early December when live music is performed within...charming. Reservations must be booked through the Currier Museum

First, you need to reserve in advance for a visit. Second, it's a must see. Both guides were knowledgeable and showed their passion for this house. They explained everything in detail and made the 90 minutes visit pass so fast by entertaining you with questions. From outside, this house seems small, but the living room gives it a sence of...

It's hard to believe the Zimmerman house is on only a 3/4 acre lot. The style of the house and its diagonal placement on the lot make the site seem much more spacious. The living room and bedrooms give one the feeling of being outdoors. The ceilings are a gorgeous cypress. The living room coffee table is in two detachable... More

We toured the Zimmerman house at the end of October 2015. We left the Currier and Ives Museum with our tour guide Pam for the short drive to the home. Once we arrived at the house we were told various aspects regarding the outside of the home and them proceeded inside. Pam explained many of the concepts of the home... More

This house is another one of his masterpieces. This house is smaller than the rest but is lacking no charm. It is quaint and cozy with the same window work and angles he is know for.

I have visited at least 5 FLW tours and this is the best curated and guided experience. Both of the guides that I had the pleasure of touring with were knowledgeable and able to cater to a wide variety of guests. I studied architecture so I am perhaps a bit more critical - but was very impressed. The property is... More
