At first, I entered in mausoleums. It was super nice with stained-glass windows. However, we were evidently not in the right place. Thanks to a map we found how to go to the Blue Sky Mausoleum. Once we stopped at the Blue Sky Mausoleum, we...More

This aspect of our All Wright All day tour was a little disappointing in that it was built for Darwin Martin, et al but is not utilized for him or his family because he couldn't afford to be buried there...a millionaire gone penniless....sad story. But...More

While driving through Forest Lawn to find this site we stumbled upon many historic gems including the Darwin Martin grave, beautiful mausoleums, deer and a Great Blue Heron. The Wright site was stunning in its simplicity and beauty. The somber military funeral with taps echoing...More

I was very impressed by both the design and the beautiful setting that this was placed in. It is another fine example of Buffalo architecture

Considering how prolific Frank Lloyd Wright was, it is amazing that he only designed one funerary piece. Although not the original planned setting, this one is located in a much nicer spot. I understand that spots are still available.

Good commentary by guide on tour. Added to the history of Wright and the Martin family. Can be viewed outside the tour as it in Forest Lawn Cemetery.

We are so happy you enjoyed this all day tour experience. We felt that having a guide on board adds value to this excursion since many of our guests are from out of town. I bet even the locals get a chance to learn something.

It's a nice well cared for mausoleum. You can't miss it when you are in the large Forest Lawn cemetery as it's so strikingly beautiful and serene

Blue Sky has become one of the most visited spots at Forest Lawn. This is the only funerary design Mr. Wright did and there will never be another one built. There have been numerous burials there and over 20% of the levels have been purchased....More
