The associates are really friendly, and willing to help visitors with any questions. There is all kinds of information on Oak Park and surrounding areas. Also, a nice gift shop with Frank Loyd Wright items.

Choose from a number of tours led by knowledgable volunteers. We did the three hour tour around Oak Park which included Wright's house and studio. Mark was our guide and was fantastic! In fact, the entire staff was great. Book early as tours fill up!
