We're taking this show on the road!
Purchase your ticket to participate in the first-ever Spring Edition of the Mid Mod Madness Mid-Century Home Tour. This spring's tour features four phenomenal homes in Osky, including Frank Lloyd Wright's Lamberson home, that create comfort without sacrificing style. Ticketholders will take a guided tour in Oskaloosa to experience the architecture and interior design behind each home. Get styling inspiration and discover the history of mid-century design!
There will be a 10:00 a.m. tour and a 1:30 p.m. tour. You must provide your own transportation to the designated meeting spot in Oskaloosa. Once you arrive, a tour bus will take you to each location. Tickets are limited!
All of the proceeds from the event will be donated to the Iowa Architectural Foundation. This site is the only place you can purchase admission for this exclusive event.
* Unlike our other tours, you will not receive a physical ticket with addresses. Since this is a guided tour, your name will be added to a list under the time slot you've chosen. You will receive a downloadable copy of instructions when you pay your admission fee.
