Fallingwater in Summer

Fallingwater

Fallingwater, Frank Lloyd Wright’s masterpiece of organic architecture, is a place where human habitation and the natural world harmonize through art and design.
During a Guided Architectural Tour led by a Fallingwater educator, walk the forested grounds and examine Fallingwater’s intimate relationship with the mountainous landscape that inspired its design. Then, explore the house from both the interior spaces and outdoor cantilevered terraces. Inside the living room, one of modern architecture’s most iconic spaces, 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. Go behind the scenes to see the kitchen and servants’ sitting room and experience the living and sleeping accommodations in the Guest House. In addition to the guided architectural tour, specialty tours and self-guided or guided exterior tours, explore the beautiful forested landscape and extensive trails of the 5,100-acre Bear Run Nature Reserve. Enjoy chef-prepared lunch items and pastries made from locally sourced ingredients in the Fallingwater Café, then browse the Speyer Gallery and Fallingwater Museum Store. Guided tours are offered daily – except on Wednesdays – from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, March through November. Reservations are essential.
