Meet us where Prairie School Architecture was born
This is where your Frank Lloyd Wright tour should begin. In a tree-lined neighborhood in Oak Park where nearly 30 buildings were designed by the famed architect, you will find the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio where he lived and worked.
It is here where Wright designed many of the homes and structures that would spawn a new and distinctly American style of architecture. It is here where the ideas and inspirations behind the Prairie School-style of architecture were born.
Guided tours of the home and studio are offered daily from 10am - 4pm (10am-3pm in January and February).
If you plan to combine your tour with an enhanced Unity Temple tour, Saturday mornings are the best time to visit for the weekly 9am enhanced tour.
If you want to see even more of the Wright-designed buildings nearby, enhanced guided tours are available on Saturdays and Sundays April through November at 10am and noon. Guided cycling tours are offered Saturday and Sundays May through October at 9:30am.
For a special experience, visit Oak Park for the one-day-only Wright Plus Housewalk when tours of the interior of eight homes are on display (May 21, 2022).
