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!

Family Field Trips Include:

  • Private outdoor experience of Fallingwater that examines the house’s exterior from the landscape and many of the open-air terraces. Individual family groups can include up to 12 people from a single family.
  • Fun learning activities that engage students through observation, sketching, demonstration, and reflection. Activities meet Pennsylvania Department of Education’s Academic Standards in social studies, arts and humanities.
