For anyone interested in architecture, this should be at the top of the list of places to visit. Although Frank Lloyd Wright's home and architecture school are not inexpensive to tour, the monies spent go towards renovation and maintenance of the estate. The docents are very knowledgable and the info is fascinating. You will be glad you visited.

Very worthwhile tour if you want to know more about Frank Lloyd Wright. This house is very interesting. The tour is a couple of hours and you are on your feet most of the time. I enjoyed seeing all of his experiments in architecture! This tour isn't for kids.

Big fan of Frank Lloyd Wright. So whenever we are in the area where one of his buildings is located we check it out. We were very pleased. Drove way out of our way to get there. I guess you could call us groupies. If you get a chance, check out Falling Water too.

After reading the book, LOVING FRANK, I just had to see Taliesin. It didn't disappoint. The guides were great and really love their job. Beautiful.

.. As my husband is an architect, we have read and seen many books with regard to FLW and all of his creations. One cannot truly imagine what it is like to see Taliesen in reality! That day is one of the high points in our life and we are both 74, so you know it is darn good! Cannot... More

We were excited to see the Spring Green area along with Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin and arrived there on a beautiful Sunday afternoon with the tree colors at their peak. The beauty of the area did not disappoint. We then took a one hour tour of the FLW school and drafting studio. Interesting and historical but also kind of sad... More

We enjoyed our tour of the house. Wanted to take the combined tour, but it was already full up several days prior, and this was for a Friday visit. So consider getting advance tickets. The tour prices were fairly pricey, but I understand this property is expensive to maintain. The architecture is cool, of course. I liked the inside better... More
