The Highlights Tour is a way to experience the interiors of two significant, yet distinctly different Wright-designed buildings, Hillside and Taliesin. Created for the Wright enthusiast and the casual visitor, the Highlights Tour couples the history and masterful design of two architectural landmarks into one quick-paced two-hour tour. Included is a drive through the scenic Taliesin grounds past Midway Farm, Taliesin’s former farming complex.
This tour is a rich overview of the Taliesin property’s finest architectural jewels, beginning with Hillside’s expansive Assembly Hall, the Fellowship Dining Room, the 5,000 sq. ft. "abstract forest" Drafting Studio, and the delightful Theater, after which you’ll drive across the estate to Taliesin and enjoy Wright’s personal Studio, the Living Room, his Guest Bedroom, the Blue Loggia, Mrs. Wright's recently restored bedroom, as well as Mr. Wright's bedroom. Covering spaces designed by Wright in 1902, 1911, 1932, and 1952, the Highlights Tour is similar in format to our popular Estate Tour, minus the one-mile walk and in half the time. The Highlights Tour is a refreshing gateway experience into the legacy of both Wright and Taliesin for both the novice and the seasoned Wright enthusiast.
