A fascinating and well-run operation. My tour guide was very energetic and kept the discussion going as we learned all about this unique FLW residence. Highly recommended.

We thoroughly enjoyed our two-hour of the Martine complex. Our guide Dave's enthusiasm for Wright's genius was infectious. We walked away with a clearer understanding of Wright's vision and and appreciation of the exquisite materials he used to realize that vision.
