Some Wright Locations Reopen for Tours


As more areas begin to open back up in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Home and Studio and the Frederick C. Robie House have posted their own reopening notices.

The Frank Lloyd Wright Trust recently posted new tour guidelines for in-person tours at those locations, which are in accordance with Phase 3 of the five-phase “Restore Illinois” plan.


“The Frank Lloyd Wright Trust is committed to the health and well-being of our visitors, staff and volunteers,” the organization notes, detailing cleaning procedures, social distancing and personal protection plans.

Those plans include:

  • Increased cleaning and sanitation;
  • Hand sanitizer stations;
  • Reduced sizes of our groups;
  • Adjusted tour routes;
  • Proper spacing intervals;
  • Marked areas;
  • Credit card-only purchases; and
  • Staff, volunteers and guests in mandatory face masks.


At the beginning of April, the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy, in partnership with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation and Unity Temple Foundation, recently announced that it would be holding Wright Virtual Visits, a social media initiative that will allow the public to view a dozen Wright sites.

The Wright sites participating in the initiative include:

  • Ebsworth Park;
  • Emil Bach House;
  • Fallingwater;
  • Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy;
  • Gordon House;
  • Graycliff;
  • Hollyhock House;
  • Martin House;
  • Samara;
  • Seth Peterson Cottage;
  • Taliesin;
  • Taliesin West;
  • Unity Temple;
  • Westcott House; and
  • Willey House.
