Tour Description

Whether students are studying at school or home this year, Fallingwater invites families with children in grades K-12 to enjoy the outdoors through an exploration of architecture and nature on one of our Family Field Trips. During a private exterior tour of the house and its landscape, families learn about the science, technology, art and history of Fallingwater through a series of engaging activities. You’re sure to learn new things from one of the world’s most significant works of architecture and have lots of fun along the way!
