The Frank Lloyd Wright/Fallingwater Tour
Thursday-Friday, September 14-15

Tickets available in June

Have you always wanted to see Fallingwater, Frank Lloyd Wright's masterpiece?  It's the most famous Modernist house in America!  Do the Wright thing and join NCMH this fall.  Finally, you'll get Fallingwater off your bucket list!

What about flying, direct, to Pennsylvania? It’s all included. Breakfast?  Lunches?  Wi-fi?  Yes.  Hotel? You betcha. Ground transportation? Of course. Wow, that’s incredible! We think so, too.

Join NCMH and our merry band of architectural adventurers as we make the pilgrimage to Fallingwater and all things Wright. This trip is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, with virtually everything included.

Did you know that just a few miles away, there's another remarkable Wright house, Kentuck Knob, and it's world-class outdoor sculpture garden?

Want to visit the Duncan House, another by Wright? No problem.  How about two more Usonian homes inspired by Wright?  Yes.

Trip includes:

Roundtrip DIRECT flight to Pittsburgh Intl Airport via American Airlines.

Our own air-conditioned touring bus with wifi.

Lunch both days.

Guided detailed tours of Fallingwater, Kentuck Knob, and Polymath Park (Duncan house plus 2 additional houses), with external photography permitted.

The Fine Print

All participants are required to sign a liability release before going on the trip.

Once full payment is made, there are no refunds for any reason except for trip cancellation. However, you can transfer your place to another person with at least two weeks notice to NCMH.

The itinerary, number, and order of trip events are subject to change without notice or refund.

There is a small but possible risk of overnight stay if buses and/or flights are delayed, in which case participants are responsible for any additional costs of meals, lodging, transportation, and incidental expenses. The chances of this happening are very small, and it has never happened before on an NCMH trip, but it could happen, so be prepared.

No checked luggage is allowed, carry-on only.  Hey, it's only one night!

For questions, please call NCMH's Executive Director George Smart at 919.740.8407.
