Start your planning by reserving an early afternoon tour at the Hanna House, which will be your second stop. Planning gets trickier if you also want to take a guided tour at the Marin Civic Center, with few if any days when guided tours of both locations are given. If you have to choose, opt for the guided tour at the Hanna House (where you won't get in at all otherwise) and use some of the self-guided options for the Civic Center.
Marin Civic Center, 1957One of Wright's most ambitious public structures, a design filled with symbolism and Wright's statements about government. It's open weekdays and they give guided tours. Details, photos and history are here.
Hanna HouseDesigned for Stanford University professor Paul Hanna, his wife Jean and their five children, "Honeycomb House," it was Wright's first design based on non-rectangular forms. Photos, history, location, tour info
V. C. Morris Gift ShopLocated just off Union Square, the V. C. Morris gift shop's distinctive arched brickwork was designed to lure passers-by into the shop's airy interior and the interior design has similarities to the Guggenheim Museum. Location, photos
