I really love this place. I bring my friends and family when they visit. The tour guides are very knowledgeable and friendly I always give them a Tip at the end of the tour to show my families appreciation. The price of the tour is a little pricey for a non-profit. I've worked for nonprofits before and they don't pay their staff very well I hope some of that ticket price goes to them. I would have gave it five stars if it wasn't for the price of the tour.
I had seen from the outside but never been inside a Frank Lloyd Wright house. We did the basic house tour with an experienced doyen who was able to provide the "big picture" about the Wright style of architecture as well as point out how he carried his style through to the minutia. She also gave an interesting history of how this facility was used as a training ground for students of the "Wright" style. Well maintained property still in use as an architecture school-we could see the students working but were not permitted in their work area so as to not disturb.
