For $7, today's deal gets you a basic 90-minute guided tour of Frank Lloyd Wright's historical Martin House Complex in Buffalo (up to a $15 value; admission is free for children 6 and under).

An exquisite example of Wright's prairie houses, the Martin House Complex was commissioned in 1902 by Darwin D. Martin of the Buffalo-based Larkin Soap Company. With this deal, guests get a basic guided tour of the historical property, beginning with an examination of the restoration process of the Martin House Complex while a knowledgeable guide discusses the intricacies of Wright's architectural style.

Since much of the interior of the Martin House Complex is currently closed for renovations, the tour has expanded to include several other parts of the complex, starting with a walk down the stunning Pergola, a 100-foot walkway connecting the Martin House to the conservatory. There, a lush indoor garden awaits, showcasing Wright's uncanny ability to combine interior spaces with nature without simply stapling algae to the walls.

Then, take a walk inside the first floor of the Barton House, the first building constructed on the complex in 1903. The tour continues with a visit to the Gardener's Cottage, which was built in 1909 and exemplifies Wright's concept of small, affordable housing. The tour lasts about 90-minutes and includes plenty of walking, so visitors should be sure to bring comfortable shoes.


Frommer's gives the Martin House Complex an exceptional review. Eight Yahoo! Travelers give it a 4.5-star average, and TripAdvisors give it an average of 4.5 owl eyes.

  • One of his greatest works -- the man himself called it his "opus" -- this Prairie-style home was designed and constructed between 1903 and 1906. The 10,000-square-foot residence was built for Mr. Martin, one of Buffalo's wealthy industrialists and perhaps Wright's biggest booster. With its low-slung profile and emphasis on the horizontal it was -- and remains -- an amazing piece of architecture. – Frommer's
