Tour Description

A Fallingwater educator will be your guide as you experience Frank Lloyd Wright’s most recognized example of the union of architecture and nature. As you walk the beautiful forested grounds and explore the house from both interior spaces and outdoor cantilevered terraces, you will closely examine Fallingwater’s intimate relationship with the mountainous landscape that inspired its design. Inside the living room, one of modern architecture’s most iconic spaces, you will experience Wright’s pioneering idea of “breaking the box” and see an exceptional collection of fine and decorative art as well as custom-made furniture designed by Wright specifically for Fallingwater. You will go behind-the-scenes to see the kitchen and servants’ sitting room, and, as if you were guests of the Kaufmann family, experience the living and sleeping accommodations in the Guest House.
