Nothing to see if happen to show up between tour times. You cannot self-tour. When we were there, there were 4 employees standing around talking in the gift shop, yet no one could help us with a tour. Disappointing.

We've visited many Frank Lloyd Wright houses and this is definitely one of our favorites. Our guide, Valerie, was a hoot and made the tour really personal and fun. I'd love to go back.

I decided that I am not a big fan of Frank Lloyd Wright's work, but this home is marvelous! What a gem. Everything about it is fantastic. This is a must see to appreciate his genius.

I've seen several Write homes. What differentiates this one is the fact that the then governor tracked down original, or close to, furnishings for this place. Write designed everything, down to doorstops. Seeing this home exactly as he actually envisioned and created it is a...More

My daughter and I enjoyed our visit. We're Kiwis and have not before had the chance to visit an FLW house, so this was especially interesting. The guide was helpful and informative.

The site is open year round Weds.-Sun. and seasonally Mon. & Tues. The website doesn't say when the seasonal ends. The best thing to do is call 1 217 782-6776. Sorry I couldn't be more help.
