The Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio served as Wright's private residence and workplace from 1889 to 1909--the first 20 years of his career. Here Wright developed a new American architecture: the Prairie style. Trained interpreters offer insights into Wright's family life and architectural career. Enjoy guided tours of the museum complex and neighboring historic district seven days a week. Tour details are available on the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust website.

The Home and Studio are one of the highlights of any visit to Oak Park. Great tours and one of the best gift shops ever.

While visiting Chicago we took the tour as we are fans of Me. Wright. It was good to see his own home and the first he designed. The guide was well informed and answered all questions. Be aware its a $25 cab ride from downtown

Our tour guide for Wright's house and studio was detailed and informative, if a little dry. Wright's all-encompassing vision is stunning, though I am glad I did not have to sit in his chairs. An audio tour of the exterior of several other Wright house...More

Yes, we visited on a Saturday morning of a holiday weekend and no issues. As the day got later was much harder to find parking. Visit in the morning is my suggestion!
