“Is that all there is?”
Reviewed 17 September 2008

We were very excited to visit Schindler House after seeing the website. We're a big fan of Frank Lloyd Wright and modern architecture and what a cool thing to see, one of the most modern, historic homes in the city. At $7 per person, we were expecting a lot. Well . . .there's not much to see. You enter into the maze of the house. The kitchen was loaded with "stuff" (bags, glasses) like someone messy lived there. The bathrooms appeared to be, umm, working. Then, the rest of the house was just empty and filled with cobwebs with an art installation sprinkled throughout. We explored the garden a bit, but it was kind of strange and eerie. I guess I was expecting either a furnished house or a completely pristine empty house. This seemed dirty and abandoned. I would not have bothered paying $14 if I had know what there was to see. There are plenty of other houses in the city and Pasadena that are worth a look.
