My husband and I took the red line to Oak Ridge and fell in love with the small little town. We really enjoyed the Wright home and the docent providing the tour really made it great. AMAZING home and I highly recommend this tour to anyone who is a Wright fan. Seeing his home is just an amazing experience. It's also worth paying the extra $5 for the photo pass.

Very informative tour guide who provided a lot of background info on Lloyd-Wright (didn't graduate from high school, etc.) and his work...Interesting even if you aren't an architect

I've been here at least a half-dozen times and always find something new to learn and/or understand about the architecture and FLW himself. Be advised that because of his fame, you'll probably assume this to be some huge building on a great estate. It's not. It's a rather small house on a residential street. But it is worth it to visit. Take the time and pay the money for the self-guided tour. There is so much to see within a very small radius and on a nice day, it's a beautiful walk. As one of the guides for a local restaurant afterwards...there a number of them nearby.

No person who has the vaguest interest in architecture and design should miss this. The house tour is fascinating and insightful, and the guides knowledgeable and informed.

But for me the self guided neighborhood tour was just as fabulous. Hear the history of the area at your pace and enjoy a beautiful walk for an hour or so. Really worth the time and effort.

anyone with an interest in architecture or design should make all efforts to visit Frank Lloyd Wright's home and studio.
You will witness the birth of his concepts of organic architecture and his prairie style.
Our tour guide was excellent, sharing her enthusiasm and knowledge. the take a walk around the Oak Park neighborhood and view some of the master's other homes.
he ride on the 'L' is just 20 minutes from the loop, then an easy walk to the home. save your trip for a dry day to enjoy the nieghborhood.
