Here Wright developed a new American architecture: the Prairie style. Trained interpreters offer insights into Wright's family life and architectural career. Enjoy guided tours of the museum complex and neighboring historic district seven days a week. Tour details are available on the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust website.

Beautiful house and the guide was good. But tour itself is a bit boring. House only has so much excitement. $18 is pricey for the low level of entertainment and short duration of the site.

Great tour - just the right amount of time at about an hour. Had a fabulous guide, Peter, and the small group size makes hearing and viewing accessible for all.
