I toured the museum actually before the city of Florence made upgrades to the experience. But I must say it did not disappoint!!! The tour guide really gave us an extensive background of the residents and made it VERY interesting. All original furnishings give this house the feeling of still being lived in! It seems like the residents just stepped... More

We missed this last time we visited Florence, but we made it there last time. Got a personal tour and it was beautiful, built in 1940, I felt like I was back in the 1950's. Not all the clutter we have now in our homes. Amazing home, so glad we were able to see it, took lots of outside photos.... More

Frank Lloyd Wright home -- really cool how this home was designed with such detail and is rather timeless design considering many new home owners are looking for ways to live large but with a small budget. This home design demonstrates how to accomplish such living. And, in many ways -- this home depicts living grand -- Unique and amazing... More

Every inch is a wonder of Frank Lloyd Wright's creation and energy. Unique window cuts, furniture, kitchen thoughts, air flow and oddities. It was a added jewel on out trip coming up from our cruise out of New Orleans. It really makes you want to know more about the Rosenbaum family. Great docent had a real take on Wright's ideas...

It's a little out of the way (unless you're going to Space Camp) but well worth it. Example of the Wright's Usonian idea as it was supposed to work. One part of the house was built as a fairly compact home, then the owners flipped the floor plan and built a mirror image to make it suitable for a larger... More

Prime example of Wright's Usonian design concept and restored to it's original condition in 1999. From the FLW designed furniture to the cantilever bunk beds it's the only Wright building that is open to the public in the Southeast. Back lawn is expansive and beautifully maintained. The guided tours are so educational and the leaders are very knowledgeable. Spoiler Alert:... More

Interesting Frank Lloyd Wright Usonian style house. Tour was $8pp, the guide was very knowledgeable. The house blends the outside with its inside with large windows and beautiful natural lighting. Bedrooms are simple with built in shelves, storage and desks. The owners added on to the original house; the add-on was also designed by Wright. The city now owns and... More
