My daughter and I visited the House on a Rock last week near Spring Green. I honestly had no idea what to expect. I was truly amazed with Alex Jordan's bizarre house with all of it's little cubby spaces and his massive collections. I was...More

For years I have wanted to visit The House on the Rock, and now that I have, I have no interest in seeing it again. I really like architecture so I was excited to finally check it out. But unfortunately, while it was interesting, the...More

To say this place is unique is an understatement. After walking through the original house, the themed rooms, and finally reaching the carousel you feel like you've taken something mind altering. Luckily there's a zen garden where you can recalibrate before heading down the hill...More

I had never heard of this place and visited as an afterthought. It is astonishing. First, it's a wonderful museum of Americana, and would be well worth a visit for this alone. Second, Alex Jordan's over-the-top home and the history of this man are fascinating....More

More than a museum, House on the Rock is one of the weirdest places I’ve ever seen. It’s a recreation of an olden-days town, a collection of collections, and it was a LOT bigger than I thought it would be. When you arrive to buy...More

Prepare to be plunged into a imaginative world full of oddities and nostalgia. So much kitschy, touristy Americana but I absolutely loved it! Every turn you will experience the unexpected. This place really is a total trip. When I went, there were several options depending...More

There is so much to see that, when you're older, it takes a toll on your feet. Fortunately, HOTR allows one year for you to complete your tour. We made it as far as the carousel and will come back for section 3 in September....More

I have been to House on the Rock twice. Once with adults and this time with my daughter, who's a toddler. If you do section 1 take some allergy meds. Seriously. The carpeted walls, the dust, the lack of circulating air it's oppressive. I will...More

It’s weird. Endless. The red carpeting made me twitchy. The mold made me sneeze. You’ve got to experience it. Once. Once is definitely enough. Clearly the guy was a hoarder who needed a place for his stuff. No wonder Jennie never married him—she didn’t want...More
