We drove 9 hours to come to Burlington to see this work of art and was not disappointed. Located next to a beautiful commercial building in beautifully landscaped overgrown field, this display draws crowds young and old. We spent about 5 minutes here but could...More

This is not something worth visiting. It's a tower of rusty filing cabinets in front of some office building. There isn't any information about it at the site, just the tower.

Take a break from your tour of Burlington's finest breweries to marvel at the 8th wonder of the world. The World's Tallest Filing Cabinet won't disappoint those who love quirky roadside attractions (or filing cabinets). You'll gaze at it for 5 minutes and ponder things...More

A little bit of whimsy along Flynn Street. It will bring a smile to your face and maybe a chuckle. Get up close to it. It is rather clever. Best of all you are just steps away from an antiques market and Switchback Brewing.

This is a pretty stupid item. It isn't the world's tallest filing cabinet, its a stack of filing cabinets(plural). If you find this thing appealing, I feel sorry for you. Perhaps a coupla brewskie's from down the street will help you out.

I happened to drive by this after a stop at a brewery. I would never go out of my way to see this. It’s a tall stack of file cabinets. There’s not much else to say.

If you are in the area, or going to a brewery nearby as I was then this is well worth the stop to look at and take a picture. It really is just a ton of filing cabinets stacked on top of each other. Only...More

As an expert of filing cabinet towers I was beyond impressed of this engineering marvel. The fact that it is architecturally pleasing, LEED Platinum, and it’s uniqueness gave me goosebumps. I believe it should be the 8th wonder of the world. 13/10 would visit again.

Worth a quick stop to see. We stayed less then 5 minutes but put a smile on our face after seeing it.

A five minute stop, totally cute and kitchy! Everyone laughed at me for wanting to do it; now appears to be some of their favorite photos! Be sure to check out the great market across the street!

About 40 feet tall. It is off to the side of a parking lot so it is somewhat easy to miss, but fun.
