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

Frank Lloyd Wright was pure genius, way ahead of his time. Just to see such magnificent architecture is mind blowing. Great tour for artistic individuals, just to look at these beautiful designs is amazing. Take a tour walk around looking at his various marvels of architecture. You will not be disappointed.

I have always wanted to see an example of FLW's work and what could be better than exploring his home and studio first hand? We stayed in the city and it is about a 20 minute drive to Oak Park, not bad at all. Parking is on the street, there seemed to be plenty, no problem. I got our tickets... More

A fantastic tour of Frank Lloyd Wright's home and studio. I took the 1 hour guided tour. There is a longer one that includes a guided walking tour around the local Oak Park neighborhood and viewing other FLW-designed homes and buildings. The interior is incredibly well-preserved and restored to how it appeared in 1909, the last time FLW lives there.... More

Tour lasts about one hour. Very informative and it really gives you an idea of how Frank Lloyd Wright's mind worked when it came to designing homes. Very worthwhile tour

We caught the 'L' train out to Oak Park from downtown Chicago - easily done (that is a great value for money public transport system!) and strolled through the leafy suburb to join our tour. It was a beautiful sunny Saturday which made the visitor centre a very busy place indeed, so I recommend booking on line rather than just... More

Like many a FLLW fan, his home and studio is a must see (been there twice). The tour is well lead and worth the time time and expense to open one's eyes to Wright and see first hand where much of his early work was accomplished. Once in Oak Park, spend the day walking this wonderful neighborhood with great examples... More
