There is much here that is worth seeing. The home and the studio are presented in a way that make the early life of Wright, his first wife and family come alive. The evolution of Wright's work is seen through the evolution of these buildings....More

The house and studio were interesting, well restored. Guide was great. Train ride from the Loop was easy and OK. Bonus is stopping at the visitors center in the middle of town and getting map showing houses designed and built by Wright.

Apart from the tour of the studio and house, there is a self-guided tour available of a set of houses nearby all designed by FLW, a great afternoon's visit. We just took the metro here from the city and then a short walk to the...More

A small tour, but very interesting. Wright was an architectural genius! There is also another tour you can take which walks you by several of his other built homes in Oak Park.

Really good guide. Interesting tour. Long enough to get a full look at the home and studio, but not so long to get fidgety. We followed up with the walking tour audio guide and we enjoyed it also.

A very informative and delightful tour. It consisted of a great collection of Wrights styles and how they changed as he progressed along in his career,

Oak Park is deceptively far from downtown Chicago, so make the effort to get there worthwhile by doing the longer 3-hour tour. It really is worth the added time and investment. You see more of the house, do a walking tour of the surrounding neighborhood's...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!
