We are somewhat interested in architecture so we went on the 1 hour tour because we thought the longer tours would be too long. The house is incredible and our tour was very insteresting. We are thinking of returning for an evening tour.

It took me three tries before I could get a tour of this place. They always had a reason I had to come back another day. Turns out I could have avoided it, the tour guides weren't the most knowledgable.

We love the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright and were excited to see another of his works. Tours depart at different times so call or check the website. The house has been restored beautifully and with great care. You go into a good majority of...More

One of the finest examples of the architecture of the most famous artist in American history. This house and gardens is one of the best examples of the mature work of Wright. While much of his work was in transition in the mid-west this is...More

Went here recently and found the home to be well preserved and interesting. Worth an hour of your time if you are into FLW or architecture. From the outside I didn't think it looked impressive - more like a comercial building, but inside was nice...More

The guy was a genius. Docents were very knowledgeable. The living room is impressive. I highly recommend the two hour tour.

Wight's last Prairie-style home and probably the biggest. Very thorough tour of both levels and the gardens. Go on a sunny day to experience the use of stained glass and skylights. Well worth a detour.

This Frank Lloyd Wright house has only been open to the public three years. The house, originally owned by a Kansas Governor, has been painstakingly brought back to life. It’s amazing! Book a tour, the docents are knowledgeable and their insights enhance the experience. Enjoy!

We had a two-hour tour of the house and loved it. The docents were incredibly knowledgeable and the house is beautiful! If you're anywhere near Wichita and particularly if you live in Kansas, this is a must-see!

I’ve been on a number of tours of Wright designed buildings and this is one of the best. The home and it restoration is impressive. The docents are well trained. During the tour you spend enough time in each area of the home to really...More

As I recall, you need to call them and make reservations for the tours at this house. They are very limited.
