Starting in August 2020 we will offer special guided tours of Farnsworth House, focused on Dr. Farnsworth’s life and times – and the current furnishing of the House as it appeared in early 1955. Although Mies van der Rohe had specified furniture of his own design, Dr. Farnsworth preferred Scandinavian Modern furniture by Jens Risom, Bruno Mathsson, Florence Knoll and other top designers. Tours include 20 minutes interior access and up to 60 minutes exterior.
