Frank Lloyd Wright Civic Center


Avenue of the Flags
San Rafael, CA 94903

The Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Marin County Civic Center is a national- and state-designated historic landmark.

Join us for a private docent-led behind-the-scenes tour of the beloved Marin County Civic Center designed by renowned architect Frank LLoyd Wright. The Marin County Civic Center (1957) is one of the last major works of Wright’s career and his only realized project for a government entity.

In this exclusive tour, you’ll get access to the Marin County Board of Supervisors Chambers and their private balcony, you’ll be eye level with the building’s iconic blue roof, you’ll see custom furniture designed Frank Lloyd Wright and built by inmates from San Quentin’s wood shop, and you’ll learn the complicated and scandalous history of the creation of the building from specially trained docents. 

90-minute docent-led tours of the Civic Center are offered every Wednesday at 10:30 am, leaving from the second floor Café, Room 233. The cost is $10 adults and $5 seniors and students and no reservations are required. Groups of ten or more can arrange a private docent tour by calling the Visitor Services Office at (415) 473-3762.
