It is a place of mystery and intrigue, a place where one person's imagination and dreams have become reality. The House on the Rock is the grand vision of Alex Jordan, who believed that sights and sounds were the most effective means of stimulating the senses. He wanted guests to question his creation, to come to their own conclusions and to turn his world of dreams into their own. The Attraction has room after room of some of the world's most unique and eclectic collections, which has amazed thousands of visitors each year.

    "Super unique museum! Basically this guy built a house on a rock fur seclusion, then opened it up to the public after his friends offered to pay to see his house. Then the museum additions started. There's a pretty cool observation area overlooking the cliff. The originator, who has since passed, was a major collector of things (borderline hoarder ;), including the largest carousel in the world--unfortunately you can't ride it though. You'll get tokens (we got 4 with our 3 ticket hotel/museum combo) to use throughout the exhibits for the mechanical displays. They are 25 cents a piece and you can buy more at machines throughout. If you run out and you hang around an exhibit long enough someone else will likely use a coin and you can enjoy. We actually thought the coins were for a carousel ride so make sure you use them before you get to the end! Oh and there is a massive octopus fighting a whale statue that is incredible. We spent 4 hours going through everything. If you're a big history buff or like to look at every item displayed you could spend an entire day here. You get a discount if you stay at either the House on the Rock Inn or Resort 10 minutes away. I just wish the museum was open past 5pm as check in time is 3pm at the hotels. There are 3 separate sections that you can break up into a couple days if you want to."

    "This place is definitely a “different” place! It is sure to get all your senses going and may stimulate your mind a little to much. Mr. Jordan was for sure a very unique man. There was so much to see at this place and it was all very interesting. If you have kids I wouldn’t plan on reading much of anything, especially if you go on the ultimate tour(do all three sections), b/c it definitely makes for a long day. There is so much to see and experience at House on the Rock. They have two really nice little restaurants within and a few places to get a sip of water as well."

    "A truly memorable, fantastic, fanciful destination that is sure to strike the fancy of anyone and everyone alike. No matter your interest or hobby, your favorite style or era... You are undoubtedly promised a collection you'll find truly stroking. House On The Rock delivers as a perfect, reasonably priced attraction for the young and old alike, be it on your own or entertaining a crowd this is the place for you. Just be sure to bring your walking shoes and an open mind as this amazing destination earns it's way into your heart. Consider staying at the Inn for added savings and interesting sights!"

    "A total sensory overload that breaks you down as you walk for miles around the most eclectic of collections. When you are at the very edge of mental and physical exhaustion, having believed you have seen everything you turn the corner and are greeted by the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, and will, for a moment, believe they are actually standing in front of you. By the end I genuinely started to think I was on the verge of having a psychological breakdown. Hand on heart I don't know if I could recommend visiting, or even if I enjoyed it. I wouldn't discourage anyone from visiting. It is an attraction that needs experiencing."

    "I enjoyed the House part of the attraction, the rest that is housed in other buildings was interesting yet a bit overwhelming. If you do the entire self guided tour, wear good shoes, bring water, prepare to spend 4 hours mostly indoors. I am in awe that this house was built, then I'm in awe (and sort of curious why) that the rest was built/collected. To say that the collections are a 'feast for the eyes' would be an understatement. The house though is neat. Don't miss going into the bathroom (at least the women's) in the main area of the building (where you get the tickets)."
