Introducing our new Farnsworth Family Day! For just $20 per family*, you and your kids can spend up to 5 hours experiencing the autumn colors of Dr. Edith Farnsworth’s riverside property on our wooded walking paths, and participate in exciting hands-on STEAM activities! We’re partnering with Kendall County Forest Preserve, Open Space Art Gallery & Studios, Plano YMCA, Yorkville Chamber GreenConnect, and Woody’s Orchard for this day of family fun!
Ticket covers up to six (6) family members; additional members will be charged at the door. Adult supervision is required at all times. Tickets do not provide access to the Farnsworth House. Guided tours sold separately.
Designed by Mies van der Rohe in 1945 and constructed in 1951, the Farnsworth House is a vital part of American iconography, an exemplary representation of both the International Style of architecture as well as the modern movement’s desire to juxtapose the sleek, streamline design of Modern structure with the organic environment of the surrounding nature.
