We took an afternoon tour of the SC Johnson headquarters and research tower. The guides were excellent and shared interesting information. There was plenty of "downtime" to explore on your own at various points in the tour. In my opinion some of those times could...More

The combo of SC Johnson office building and Research tower is so different from his residential designs that it is a must see for fans of Frank Lloyd Wright. The free tour + transportation from Chicago provided by generous SC Johnson company is phenomenal. Grab...More

I am so grateful to the SC Johnson Wax Company. They have preserved FLW's architecture in tip top condition. Stepping into the tower takes you back in time. It's like a history lesson as you walk around the circular floors. There are blueprints and journals...More

Did this tour as part of the Chicago Biennial - no interior pictures allowed. Can't believe how well-preserved it is, right down to the sample desks they've tricked out "of the time." Also, where else will you want to buy a Scrubbin Bubble plush?

A very nice tour of the administrative offices and the Research Tower. We also visited a tunnel in which the history of the Johnson Wax Company was shown.

Probably the most fantastic company I have ever visited (and being an int’l business man I have many on my list). The industry complex is fascinating by its architecture, decoration and history. Besides SCJohnson being for me one of the most respected companies.

Wonderful (free) tour of the original building and then the newer "museum" space. Just amazing to think of the innovation that went into the structure. A trip down memory lane for those of us who remember our high school chemistry labs!
