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.

If you have any interest in architect Frank Lloyd Wright's development, this home, the first he designed for himself, is an excellent place to begin. He was only 22 at the time, but you can already see the influences, including a Japanese aesthetic, that carried...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.

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!
