The guided tour around Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio gives you a great insight to the life and work of Frank Lloyd Wright. The tour takes about an hour and in that time you get to see the inside of this fantastic house. I loved the simplicity and all the beautiful details.

On the street of the house there are six other houses by Frank Lloyd Wright that you can from the outside and there are even more houses around the area.

We took an Uber from the city to the house out, but on the way home we took the train, and it was just as easy and cheaper and faster.

This place where Wright did some of his earliest and best work as a young architectural genius is well worth an hour. Seeing how Wright created a new American architecture among other European style homes shows both his courage to step out and lead in developing a new style and his genius in making spaces that were formative and inspiring for family and coworkers alike.

Docents are great...very knowledgeable and passionate about all things Wright, Oak path and Chicago. Make sure to do online reservations so you aren’t disappointed

If you are in Chicago, it is an easy and cheap train ride to get to Oak Park where Frank Lloyd Wright had built his first family home and studio, as well as the Unity Church. About 5 mins to walk from station to Church, and another 10 minutes to FLW's house. Also a number of other houses designed by FLW are nearby and you can take a walking tour to view them from outside.

The guide was enthusiastic and shop staff very helpful.
