Wright Around Oak Park

Meet us where Wright is on every corner


When the architecture experts at the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust describe Wright Around Oak Park as the most comprehensive of the Trust’s many tour offerings, you know you are in for an architectural treat.

This 2.5-hour tour begins with an expanded tour of Wright’s Home and Studio. The designs that Wright worked on here would soon become known throughout the world as Prairie style, a distinctly American style of architecture that blends buildings with their natural surroundings.

See where it all began with this exclusive expanded tour that includes access to the studio balcony (not included on the standard tour!)

Since the tour is limited to just eight people, you’ll be a step ahead of the crowds as you learn how Wright designed his own home and creative space.

Then you’ll step into the neighborhood for an expanded walking tour that includes an expert’s description of the exterior of ten Wright homes. See the evolution of the Prairie style as Wright transformed the neighborhood where he lived and worked with his innovative designs.

This guided walking tour is about 0.8 miles in length.
