Along with guided house tours, Fallingwater visitors will have additional opportunities to learn about Fallingwater through a new exhibition in the Speyer Gallery.

Objects and photos from the Fallingwater collections will be on display, as well as a model of the camp based on a 1920 survey.
Fallingwater is also accepting applications for volunteer opportunities for the 2018 season. Residents from nearby communities are strongly encouraged to apply. Fallingwater volunteers are asked to commit to a minimum of two days per month from May through October.
