A Closer Look: Weekly Livestream

Have you ever dreamed about going down the stairs of Fallingwater’s hatch? Opening the many closets and drawers in the master bedroom? Flipping through the books on the shelves or picking up some of the decorative objects? Wednesdays this fall and winter, join Fallingwater staff for exclusive, behind-the-scenes looks at specially selected parts of the house, collection and/or grounds. “A Closer Look” is a live broadcast series, through which you will gain special access to spaces, objects, stories and information that are not included on our architectural tours.
