About
Taliesin, the home, studio and estate of Frank Lloyd Wright, is located in the hilly Driftless Region of southwestern Wisconsin near Spring Green. It is the name of Wright’s house as well as the 800-acre estate that includes buildings from all decades of Wright’s career. Its many wings and terraces reach out around the ridge of the hill, embracing the site and standing as “brow.” Taliesin was the residence of Wright and the valley was his inspiration and life-long laboratory for architectural designs and innovation. Taliesin represents the most complete embodiment of Wright’s philosophy of Organic Architecture. The Taliesin residence is the heart of a series of buildings that Wright designed for himself and his family members on the estate. Other buildings include: Romeo & Juliet Windmill (1896), Hillside Home School (1903), Tan-y-Deri (1908), Hillside Drafting Studio (1932), Midway Barn (1949), Hillside Theater (1952), and the Frank Lloyd Wright Visitor Center (1967).

Best Tour Guide
Jun 2021
It was such a pleasure to have someone as knowledgeable and friendly as Jill. She was fantastic. I feel we had the best person for this tour.
The only thing I would improve is the souvenir store. There was not as much product in depth as I would like. I did manage to spend about $300😁

Great history and beautiful sight!
Jun 2021
My husband and I did the full estate tour and loved it. Jill, our docent was very knowledgeable about Frank Lloyd Wright and the at times shocking history of the estate (fires! affairs! murder!). This was a highlight of our trip to the area.

We very much enjoyed our Highlights tour of Taliesin. It was very comprehensive and gave a good overview of Wrights journey. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about Mr. Wright and the design elements of the property and his personal life. A very enjoyable afternoon.

Beautiful tour; totally worth it!
Jun 2021
We took the two-hour tour and highly recommend it. The architecture is stunning, the gardens are beautifuly, the tour guide was very knowledgeable, and the views/vista were breathtaking. It's one thing to read about places or see photos of them, but nothing beats being there in real life. The surrounding countryside on the drive to Taliesin was beautiful, as well.

We enjoyed our two hour tour very much. Found the house and grounds very interesting and well maintained. Our tour guide Shey (or Shay) was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic.

So good I'll do it again
Jun 2021
The estate tour was so good and yet not even close to being strenuous or too long for me or, as far as I could sense, anyone else. Spencer did a great job taking us around, and I was so awed by the site and designs that I will go back. The price is worth is it!

A very special afternoon
Jun 2021
I visited with friends who had flown in from the east coast, and none of us was disappointed. The grounds were beautiful, the structures steeped in history were astounding and photogenic, and the tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable and fun. We took the two-hour highlights tour, and I would definitely go back to take the longer one given the chance.
