Falling Water

1491 Mill Run Road

The purpose of the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy’s operation of Fallingwater is:

to preserve, maintain and make available for public education and appreciation Frank Lloyd Wright’s masterpiece, Fallingwater.

to demonstrate by the example of Fallingwater the powerful result that can be achieved through the harmonious union of man’s work with nature

to maintain in Fallingwater its character as a weekend home of the period it was occupied by its owners, Edgar and Liliane Kaufmann (occupied 1937 to 1955) and their son, Edgar Kaufmann, jr. (occupied 1937 to 1963)

to preserve its original furnishings, art and household objects, exhibiting them as naturally as possible in what is now a public museum

to conserve the land and watershed into which Fallingwater was designed to fit, as a continuing source of inspiration through a 5000 acre nature reserve intended for both recreation and study.

If you like architecture, you will LOVE this house! You begin at the welcome center and walk to the home to meet your tour guide. The inside of the main home and guest house are decorated in a way that makes you feel like you're outside in nature. You cannot take pictures of the inside of the home. Great for photography. It's cheapest to buy your tickets online.

I reserved the earliest slot and was early. It was peaceful and I was lucky to have a beautiful morning to stroll around before the tour. The tour was a bit crowded with people all shifting rooms in sequence to deal with the 5 minute starts on the tours. But that's because it's a major attraction. They handle the crowds well and provided additional assistance to someone in the tour I was in that needed a shuttle. They told her she could sit on a bed if needed because they aren't original.

The place is worth seeing. I thought the architecture of the house was overrated. It's very conceptual, but not practical. The maintenance is expensive, and costs keep rising indeed. The service was great and everything's very well organized. We took one hour tour for $30. You're not allowed to take pictures during the tour. They have a little cafe with fast food type, quite expensive as expected, but food was good. Parking is free with a tour ticket, we came on Sunday at 3:30 pm and had no problem.

Such an amazing piece of architecture, it truly does live in the landscape. There is no boundary between inside and outside; you are constantly surrounded by the forest and the sounds of water. I hadn't been to Fallingwater for over 20 years, and returning was so special. The improvements made during that time (including the construction of the visitors center and touring of the guest house added) are spectacular and make for a wonderful visit. The visitor center is breathtaking itself and provides a gallery, cafe, gift shop, and restrooms as well as the information desk. You can't linger here long enough.

It takes planning since it's out of the way and you need to reserve tickets. But it's definitely worth seeing. It's an iconic house that is still very modern looking. In the 1930s, it must have looked surreal. Very cool to see it up close and personal.
