SC Johnson’s Frank Lloyd Wright Buildings: You’re Always Welcome for Tours

You may know us only for our brands, like Glade®, Raid®, Windex® and Ziploc®. And that’s great, because we love being part of your home! But you might be interested to know about our home, too. 
 
Located in Racine, Wisconsin, SC Johnson has the only remaining Frank Lloyd Wright-designed corporate headquarters that’s still in use. We also have an award-winning Foster + Partners-designed building, a gallery featuring Frank Lloyd Wright-focused exhibits, acclaimed films, and a replica twin-engine S-28 amphibian plane with a story that will touch your heart.
 
Come see it all for yourself. We love to show visitors around our architecture and campus.
