Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by MJB1103 on September 29, 2005

If you have ever fancied Frank Lloyd Wright and liked his architecture or furniture, this is a must-see spot!

Entry tickets cost $12 per person and include a guided tour through the home and studio of Frank Lloyd Wright. Stories are told of how and when Frank bought the home, built the furniture, or modified the rooms to his liking. You learn about when he built the studio and how he used to travel to work from home to studio. There are pictures you can view of his family and children in an upstairs room, but you are not allowed to take photos inside the house or studio at all.

There is a large locker when you check in for your tour to put your belongings. They ask that you don’t carry bags and totes through the home as not to bump into anything or possibly damage any furniture.

The tour lasts about 1 to 1.5 hours, depending on the size of your group and how many questions are asked. Once your tour is complete, you are welcome to take pictures of the outside of the home and surroundings.

Make sure you stop in the gift shop. Even if you don't buy anything, it’s neat to look around. Be sure to ask for the map of the neighborhood, which shows you all of the addresses and houses that Frank Lloyd Wright designed. There are four or five on the same street and then others throughout Oak Park.
