Overview

The Highlights Tour is a way to experience the interiors of two significant, yet distinctly different Frank Lloyd Wright-designed buildings — Hillside & Taliesin. Created for the Frank Lloyd 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. In addition to visiting the two buildings, this tour includes taking our shuttle through the scenic Taliesin grounds past Midway Barn, Taliesin’s former farming complex.

This tour is a rich overview of the Taliesin property’s finest architectural jewels, beginning with Hillside Studio, you’ll see the:

  • Expansive Assembly Hall
  • Fellowship Dining Room
  • 5,000 sq. ft. “abstract forest” Drafting Studio
  • Delightful theater (*closed for preservation work through 2022*)

After visiting the Hillside Studio & Theater building, you’ll take our shuttle across the estate to the Taliesin home and enjoy some of the amazing areas such as:

  • Wright’s personal Studio
  • The Living Room
  • Wright’s Guest Bedroom
  • Mrs. Wright’s restored bedroom, as well as 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 takes half the time.

There are several series of steps and some with no handrails. Some exterior walkways consist of loose gravel or grassy pathways.
