Fallingwater Expands Visitor Choices for 2005 Season

Guided tours of this recently restored house on a waterfall resume their regular season (March 15) with several new features designed to enrich the visitor experience at this unforgettable site. Since 1963, close to 4 million people have visited Fallingwater, which was named one of 50 Places of a Lifetime by National Geographic Traveler Magazine

"Now that the restoration is complete, we want our visitors to have an opportunity to experience the house in a more leisurely way so that both its complexity and intimacy can be better absorbed," commented Fallingwater Director Lynda S. Waggoner.

Two special tours now offer a closer experience of Fallingwater. Sunset Tours combine a late-afternoon in-depth tour of the house and grounds, led by the senior interpretive staff, followed with outdoor refreshments. Exclusive Focus Tours allow visitors to tour Fallingwater with a member of the curatorial staff; then share a private lunch and lively conversation about Fallingwater's history.

Fallingwater's daily regular guided tours are offered Tuesday through Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The 8:30 a.m. In-Depth tour offers smaller groups a detailed view of the house with access to areas not available on the regular tour. Photography is only permitted during these In-Depth tours.

The Saturday Land of Fallingwater Nature Hike, a four-hour guided exploration of the house and nearby nature reserve, starts its tour schedule on April 23. Fallingwater is closed on Mondays. Reservations are essential to take a tour and can now be done through a secure website at
