  • Not only we did the tour by the House and Studio, but also a tour through the neighborhood of Oak Park which is where is that and several houses most of wright. It is recommended to do two things. Both tours are in English, the tickets are purchased separately. The kids game room and study are not to be missed!

  • The Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio is a historic house designed by renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Located at 951 Chicago Avenue in Oak Park, Illinois, the house has been restored by the Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust to its appearance in 1909, the last year Frank Lloyd Wright lived there with his family. Frank Lloyd Wright purchased the property and built the home in 1889 with a $5,000 loan from his employer Louis Sullivan. He was 22 at the time, and recently married to Catherine Tobin. The Wrights raised six children in the home. The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972 and declared a National Historic Landmark four years later. Cool place
  • What an experience! The tour guide was super informative and approachable. Talked about Wright’s influences, signature architectural touches, and life story behind the great 20th century architect. Highly recommend walking around the neighborhood as well. You’ll see lots of houses designed or redesigned by Wright. Definitely worth a visit if you know a little about architecture.
