Readily accessible to the public, you can book a free tour, highly unusual of a Frank Lloyd Wright building. The company is understandably proud of this facility and willing to share it! The administration building is beautiful and innovative and still in use. The research tower- not so much. While a fascinating design, it was not very practical. The glass... More

This free tour is wonderful. It exposes you to the delights of Frank Loyd Wright. The tour guides are informative and friendly. The buildings are worth seeing up close.

Great tour! The building is beautiful and fascinating. The stories were interesting. And it gave me a greater respect for the company as well! I grew up in Racine and drove by the headquarters many of times but never took the tour, so it was fun to finally see the inside of the buildings and hear more about them and... More

I love the creative genius of Frank Lloyd Wright and have enjoyed musing over pictures and plans of his buildings for years. Prepare to admire them only from the outside if you require a wheeled mobility device. Tours through Frank's beauties are not what one would call accessible. The attendants in place where the tours gathered were very friendly and... More

No wonder the offices are Frank Lloyd Wright design and must be a joy to work in. Excellent facilities and great museum with intriguing hydroponic wall with beautiful plants. If you are near Racine this is a do not miis attraction - so don't miss it!

The SC Johnson location is only seems to be open with a tour group. Today we arrived at 10:15 and no one could let us in. Also the web site shows 2 tours. The tour sites are 20 minutes away from each other, do not communicate with each other and the Trip advisor map for the home is incorrect. Security... More

Took this tour with my art-loving cousin. Just wished we could have stayed longer! Frank Lloyd Wright's creations in the mid 1930's still resonate. Please treat yourself to an exceptional experience. Sooooo very worth it.

This is a great tour to gain an appreciation for Racines iconic family business. From it's earliest beginnings to the historical Frank Lloyd Wright architecture, to the newest display of the Fortilisa you will gain an appreciation for everything the Johnson family has meant to the Racine community. My first visit to the golden rondell theater was at the New... More

Illinois is peppered with Frank Lloyd Wright designed buildings and Wisconsin has Taliesin but there are relatively few corporate buildings designed by Lloyd Wright that remain in such perfectly preserved original condition. The Johnson Corporation have been highly responsible custodians of the buildings, even adding to them with the Norman Foster sympathetically designed building on the same campus. The condition...

This was a very interesting tour of a company that had the future in mind from the beginning. The main buildings were designed by Frank Lloyd Wright; and when you walk into them it is hard to believe that the designs were done so far back when they had so many futuristic designs. This is definitely a place to keep... More
