Teachers & School Groups

Fallingwater welcomes student groups with teacher and parent chaperones. Field trips to Fallingwater are recommended for grades 4 and up.

Our school programs include architectural tours for students, hands-on workshops, and in-school presentations; all designed to connect a world-renowned work of architecture to learning that happens in your classroom or home.

Special discounts and scholarships are available for student groups to cover the cost of admission and transportation, especially to local schools through our Wright in Our Backyard program.

Teachers and Chaperones: Be sure to review our Guidelines for School and Group Visits.
