On this trip to the Fabyan Villa Museum, you will discover the Fabyans’ uniquely fascinating legacy. The Frank Lloyd Wright Prairie-style house contains the family's private collection of Asian artifacts, natural history specimens, original furniture and more! Documents and photographs detail George Fabyan’s involvement in the Treaty of Portsmouth and Japanese international relations, the Bacon/Shakespeare controversy, code-breaking that significantly influenced both World Wars and pioneering research and development in acoustics. The captivating combination of significant architecture, military intrigue, Japanese culture and personal exploration makes the Fabyan Villa Museum a unique experience. We will head to downtown Geneva for a late lunch before heading home. Fee includes tour and transportation. Lunch will be on your own.
