Fallingwater Reopens the House for the 56th Tour Season

One of the best examples of 20th century American architecture, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater reopens for the 56th tour season on Saturday, March 9. Last year, visitors from around the world toured the house. And starting soon, you can, too via a variety of guided house tours that provide insight into Wright’s architecture and design philosophy. This season continues an interesting exhibition in the Speyer Gallery highlighting Bear Run before Fallingwater was constructed. You can also enjoy a delicious seasonal menu in the Fallingwater Café and unique gift selections in the Museum Store during your visit.  Book your Fallingwater tour today!

March Desktop Background

Fallingwater, one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s most widely acclaimed works, was designed in 1935 for the family of Pittsburgh department store owner Edgar J. Kaufmann, Sr. Fallingwater was their weekend home from 1937 until 1963, when Edgar Kaufmann, jr. entrusted the house, its contents and the grounds to the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy. In 1964, WPC opened Fallingwater to the world, providing visitors from near and far the opportunity to learn more about design and architecture, and experience this iconic view.
