Fascinating look into Lloyd-Wrights early work and evolution from Prairie style to modernism. This is a surprising mash up of eclectic styles- japonism,arts and crafts, and cultural appropriation from Welsh farmhouse to ancient Egypt with some Native American murals and some Scandinavian friezework thrown in for good measure. As a Brit, I noticed lots of Rennie Mackintosh inspired furniture and... More

We did this tour on a Friday (Dec. 23rd) afternoon. We had reserved tickets in advance, but would have been okay. There were about 12 people on our tour. Tours a limited in size as some of the spaces in the home/studio are not large. From the exterior, this is not a prairie style home - rather, when he designed... More

The FLW Home and Studio is an excellent tour for kids and adults alike. The docents know so much and are entertaining in their presentation. I would recommend this tour for anyone interested in the Wright Style.

There are some die-hard Lloyd'ers that will spend their entire vacation spending every minute chasing Lloyd factoids, but I'm not one of them. Still, he had a powerful, lasting effect on architecture, challenging many of the "givens" of his day. The guided one-hour tour of his home and studio is an excellent and insightful overview.

I took the combo tour - house, studio and self-guided walking tour. It turned out to be a beautiful day in September - perfect for walking the neighborhood. I started with the self-guided tour. If I were to visit again, I'd probably skip the recorded device and get my own map to do the tour on my own. The recording... More

Interesting tour of the architect's first home and studio gives insight into the life and time of the innovative designer. The docent was well informed and made the information quite entertaining .

My wife and I visited this very interesting attraction during a recent visit to Chicago. We both found this tour very informative and interesting. The tour lasted about 1-1/4 hours and took us through the home and studio. Rhyus, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and had a lot of interesting highlights and stories to give to our group of...

Being an Architect by profession, visiting this place was like visiting a temple and worshipping. FLW foundation has done a great job of restoring and maintaining the home and studio. All the details and architecture is super awesome!!

Frank Lloyd Wright home and studio were well worth the trip. Our guide was very knowledge about Frank, his home and the studio. Many interesting details were pointed out during this hour tour. The walking audio tour ( with a map)which is not included in the above tour is worth the short walking distance from the studio-home. Though you can... More
