Helping to Keep You Safe from COVID-19

May 13, 2020

In response to recent developments related to COVID-19 and to further safeguard the health and well-being of the Fallingwater visitors and staff, Fallingwater remains closed to the public. 

We are closely monitoring the situation in our region and are following proactive steps recommended by local, state and federal officials. Please check back regularly for the latest updates on Fallingwater’s reopening. We’ll provide updates on social media and on this website to keep you informed.

If you already have tour reservations, Fallingwater Visitor Services will contact you to reschedule your visit.

If you are interested in a future trip to Fallingwater, we encourage you to inform us of your desired date for a visit. Two weeks in advance of your anticipated visit, Fallingwater Visitor Services will contact you directly to provide an update on tour options and the site’s reopening.

In either case, if you’re unable to reschedule for a future visit, please consider donating your ticket purchase to Fallingwater in lieu of obtaining a refund. Our Visitor Services representatives will be happy to assist you in converting your purchase to a charitable donation.

During this time of closures and cancellations, we encourage you to reflect on the value of arts and cultural organizations like Fallingwater and others that will suffer financial setbacks due to the impact of COVID-19. We truly appreciate your consideration of Fallingwater and our counterparts around the world during a very challenging time.

We look forward to reopening our doors and continuing to share Fallingwater’s beauty and inspiration with the world. In the meantime, while we all practice social distancing, we encourage you to get outdoors to refresh and renew your spirits in nature.

The Portion of Bear Run Nature Reserve Surrounding Fallingwater is Also Closed
The section of Bear Run Nature Reserve located west of Rt. 381, including that part of the Black Loop Trail, also remains closed to the public. Visitors are welcome to explore the reserve east of Rt. 381 and the designated backcountry campsites remain open. Campsites must be reserved online. To stay safe and healthy, please maintain social-distancing standards, step off-trail to let others pass and continue to follow leave-no-trace principles.

Fallingwater Needs Your Support Now More Than Ever

You are the vitality of Fallingwater. Sadly, we’ve had to close our doors, for your safety, as well the safety of our staff.
This means that we’ve stopped bringing in revenue needed for Fallingwater’s care. We’ve had to cut back staffing, operations and maintenance to their absolute minimums.
