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

If you are interested in FLW and his work you need to add this to your list. Buffalo has a lot to see and a very nice variety of his style. This piece is nestled along the banks of a small spring fed (maybe Cold...More

Blue Sky is located on a road that is easily accessible so getting to it is not a problem. You may get a map of the cemetery in our administrative office. I prefer to stand at the base of it and lookup to the heavens... that... More
