Fallingwater, Frank Lloyd Wright, 1937

I took a few photos of Fallingwater when were in Pennsylvania earlier this summer. The tour was not very expensive and took lasted two hours. We weren't allowed to take photos inside the house.

This was interesting; a Van Kepple Green bookshelf.

Interior photos of Fallingwater

I recently attended an "Insight OnSite" three-day tour of Fallingwater and thought I'd add a few pictures of Fallingwater's interior.

This was a once in a lifetime experience. Though the Insight Onsite program occurs only three times a year and is sold out through 2012, cancellations occasionally occur. For a small set of people, this is a perfect way to experience Wright's most iconic residence. Highly recommended! Incredible access to the buildings and the world-class curators.

You can find details on the Insight Onsite program at

I think you'd enjoy it. BTW, here's a copy of the dinner menu for the meal we had with the Director, the Curator of Preservation, and the author of a forthcoming book on Fallingwater:

also, there is an in-depth tour that takes place most mornings quite early. It also allows interior photography but is much cheaper than the 3-day event. We were very pleased with it. The kitchen, which I think is skipped on the normal tour, is worth the extra cash!
