"Our free tour programs provide visitors with an exciting and educational experience, giving everyone the opportunity to experience Frank Lloyd Wright's renowned masterpieces and to learn about the unique history between the architect and SC Johnson," said Kelly M. Semrau, Senior Vice President – Global Corporate Affairs, Communication and Sustainability for SC Johnson.

The Gallery currently features its debut exhibit on Wright's iconic Prairie-Style which showcases rarely-seen designs and artifacts that explore Wright's influence on families and the home. Housed in the Foster + Partners-designed Fortaleza Hall on SC Johnson's campus, Fortaleza Hall is also home to the Frank Lloyd Wright Research Library which features an eclectic collection of more than 800 items about Wright's influence in Southeastern Wisconsin. At the conclusion of all tours, visitors stop at The Lily Pad, a unique gift shop featuring exclusive SC Johnson memorabilia and Wright-inspired items.

Visiting SC Johnson

SC Johnson offers three tour programs which run from 1 to 3.5 hours. Tours operate every Friday until April 30, 2013 and are all free of charge. Tours include:

The Legacies Tour – This in-depth, 3.5-hour tour, explores the Wright-designed SC Johnson Administration Building as well as the award-winning Foster + Partners-designed Fortaleza Hall with the Spirit of Carnauba airplane soaring at its heart. The tour also includes viewing two films at the Golden Rondelle: To Be Alive, the Academy Award-winning documentary designed to celebrate the common ground between different cultures; and Carnauba: A Son's Memoir that features an enduring family message.

The Landmarks Tour – Designed in 1936, the Administration Building was the first project that Wright designed for SC Johnson. Renowned for its unique dendriform columns, open concept half-acre of workspace, circular "bird cage" elevators and 43 miles of glass tubing, this landmark is celebrated as one of the top 25 buildings of the 20th century.  

The Gallery Tour – The 1-hour Gallery Tour is designed for those who want to focus on The Gallery and its debut exhibit. The Gallery is co-curated by Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer, Archives Director at Taliesin West, Ariz. and Brady Roberts, Chief Curator of the Milwaukee Art Museum.
