Reviewed April 20, 2014

the whole design looks JETSON's and modern. Everything to the parking facility to the furniture designs. the Golden Rondelle next to Johnson's Headquarters is an unusual site as well.

“***Absolutely wonderful community tour!***”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

Growing up in Racine with SCJ a household name, field trips to the Golden Rondelle, seeing the Wright tower throughout my life, I thought the tour would be a nicety but nothing special. Was I wrong!! Schedule yourself for this tour --- and enjoy a trip back in time to the start of the Company, their dedication to the environment and community, stories of the family, and seeing Frank Lloyd Wright's architecture up close. I was blown away that a tour of this magnitude is FREE. The time, dedication and expense of coordinating this must be pretty intense, and I was humbled that they offer it to everyone at no charge. There's even a Frank Lloyd Wright audio-tour museum and gift shop! Definitely something to schedule while you're in Racine - but get tickets early to make sure you can get in, they book up fast!

“Hometown girl!”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

You won't want to miss this iconic feature in Racine as the headquarters has been a mainstay in our city for decades! The "space ship" looking building will fascinate you and you can even watch a movie inside this unique building! Just ask the friendly staff how to reserve your spot! Learn more about the history of the Johnson family and what led them to the worldwide status they hold today!

“Excellent and Informative Tour”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

The tour of the Frank Lloyd Wright designed building is very interesting. The tour guides are very professional and able to answer questions. Fortaleza Hall, designed by Norman Foster is also on campus and available for touring. It is unique and beautiful. Try to see the film Carnauba: A Son's Memoir before the tour because it gives good background.

“FLW fantasy”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

This iconic building of Frank Lloyd Wright is a MUST-DO sight in Racine. The docents are truly appreciative of the architect's genius, and are well versed in the building and history. In addition to the workroom, the Carnuba film about the sons who followed their father's trail to So America is inspirational. The newest exhibit is interesting and the space is astounding, but it is not as iconic as the workroom and not as impressive - still worth seeing and spending the time to visit.
