I worked with SC Johnson for 14 years, right on the Racine campus. During that time, the beauty of the architecture never ever grew old. From the research tower, to the great work room, to parts of the building that were never on the tour,...More

Really enjoyed the free tour and look back in time. Tour guide was very knowledgeable. I have a lot of respect for a company opening its doors to the public and sharing some of its history.

One of our favorite stops on our road trip though southern WI. The free tours were fantastically organized and led by very knowledgeable staff. The architecture of this campus (multiple buildings) is like no other - mid-century, natural, and just beautiful! A great museum is...More

If you haven’t had the opportunity to visit Racine Wisconsin, you should, because that’s where the SC Johnson campus is located. And be certain to schedule a tour of the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Administration Building there; it is definitely a must-see experience. Perhaps the most...More

We took an afternoon tour of the SC Johnson headquarters and research tower. The guides were excellent and shared interesting information. There was plenty of "downtime" to explore on your own at various points in the tour. In my opinion some of those times could...More

The combo of SC Johnson office building and Research tower is so different from his residential designs that it is a must see for fans of Frank Lloyd Wright. The free tour + transportation from Chicago provided by generous SC Johnson company is phenomenal. Grab...More

I am so grateful to the SC Johnson Wax Company. They have preserved FLW's architecture in tip top condition. Stepping into the tower takes you back in time. It's like a history lesson as you walk around the circular floors. There are blueprints and journals...More

Did this tour as part of the Chicago Biennial - no interior pictures allowed. Can't believe how well-preserved it is, right down to the sample desks they've tricked out "of the time." Also, where else will you want to buy a Scrubbin Bubble plush?

A very nice tour of the administrative offices and the Research Tower. We also visited a tunnel in which the history of the Johnson Wax Company was shown.
