You have to walk on a ramp through the treetops to reach the entrance of this remarkable house, built in the 1940s.

Heard about this place for many years, all I was ever told was it was something you needed to experience and nothing more. Now I know why, it's so weird there's no explanation for it. It's really just a collection of junk the man collected...More

I did not feel this was a man’s successful life achievement, but rather a sad presentation of genius wasted. A man who was a contemporary of Frank Lloyd Wright and Walt Disney used seemingly equal talents in self indulgence. There are collections without purpose, themed...More

Amazing place!!! I will go back again for sure. Staff was great and very helpful. I recommend a visit in the summer if possible. Lots to see give yourself a good 3 hours to take it all in.

Visited in late October. Had grown up in area, and 40 years ago, it was really well kept up and amazing! Of course, it was a time before computers, cable tv, and cordless telephones, for God’s sake. It was easier for one to be in...More

There are three parts to this place. If you hope to see them all, get there early and plan on staying till they close. You will still not see it all. The collections and displays are unbelievable. The GPS we used to get there didn't...More

Went with our daughters and all of us had a great time. Even on a chilly day, the amount of walking outside was manageable. Even though it was early for Christmas we were able to see a Lot of Santa's. So many things to see,...More

I don’t often give one star reviews, but this is a place that really needs to step up it’s game. The original house itself is interesting, but really too dark to see much. The original owner wanted to show off his stained glass, hence the...More

We did not have a tour guide. Better to amble through at your own pace. Quite eclectic.
