We got off to a bad start: Traffic was heavier than predicted, we found no signs identifying the property or advising us how to get to the Visitors Center. When we did get there, a couple of minutes later than the requested time but before...More

Nice FLW house in a nice park. Easy to find and easy to park. The docents are plentiful, knowledgeable and friendly. But... Most of the house is roped off. You can't see anything! The self-guided tour grinds to a standstill! Short description of my visit...More

I'm giving this a 3 because you are basically only allowed to walk in the entrance and look around. You can't enter any rooms and you don't see most of the house. Just the front. What they have done is great. The living room is...More

If you love FLW architecture this house is probably on your to do list. It was a great home but the access was very limited. Most rooms are blocked off and you can’t see many features of the house. The staff are very accommodating and...More

Like a lot of Wright's projects, it's finally found a deep-pocketed trust to keep it up, as the maintenance on these historic properties must be staggering, especially after falling into disuse during the decades before being genuinely appreciated. We learned (as you will) that Wright's...More

I enjoyed touring the Hollyhock house. I've toured his Home and studio in Oak Park and Robie house in Chicago so it was nice to see a different style.

It's a shame that so many people in LA haven't heard of Hollyhock, much less visited...though selfishly, it's great since you never have to fight for free parking or the perfect spot for the views of downtown LA, the Hollywood sign and Griffith observatory. This...More

An amazing architectural wonder. A continued Hollyhock abstracted pattern is reminiscent of Beethoven's pattern in the 5th Symphony. The FLW furniture is also stunning.

Well worth a trip. Minimal charge. Right next to LA County Art Museum. A great example of Wright's work.

Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie
stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day,
tourists flock here from around the world to see the
iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to
catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close.
Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas
the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and
hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night

Plenty of parking. The entrance is near the garage so get as close to the driveway to the house as you can (on top of the hill).

The self-guided tours have no time limits (except at closing time). You can remain in the house as long as you want.
