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.

    "This place is the most interesting experience I've ever had. You walk into a room and it's something so crazy and unexpected, but then the next room is bigger and better. My jaw was literally dropped the whole time (which I recommend trying against that because it is a little dusty). It's something that can't be captured in pictures because it's just so massive, and it's also crazy that it's inside a house. Be sure you have time to enjoy it, because this isn't a side attraction--its the main event"

    "Random as heck. The house proper was pretty cool to visit, very unique. Gorgeous rural view, can see the whole valley from the top of the house. The rest of the collection was... interesting. Very eclectic, collections of everything. Was/is it worth going there? Yes. Would you ever need to see this more than once in a lifetime? No."

    "I really love this place, I've been there a few times. The story behind it and its reclusive owner, is fascinating and the setting is gorgeous. I'd give it FIVE stars if tours would include more of the original house and also everything is in such severe need of a good cleaning! Unfortunately most of the self playing musical instruments were in dire need of maintenance and tuning, painful to listen to. I would think for the price you pay to go in, it could be kept up better. I plea to the owners to take better care of it because it truly is an amazing attraction!"

    "4.5 really. I have always wanted to go there and it did not disappoint. It feels like it is outside of time; not just because the house was built in the mid 20th century or all the items inside are older, but the idea of this kind of tourist attraction. It was fun and I am glad I got to take my kids. My mom remembers going in the late 60s, but I wonder if it is something my kids will take their kids too. Super friendly staff."

    "This is a must see for eccentricity buffs. Definitely weird and hard to explain, the collection of the lifetime of Alex Jordan Jr.'s lifetime is something to see. Gardens are beautiful and the self guided tour take the better part of 4 hours. It is large and old and there is dust....if this bothers you, go somewhere else. I wish there was more information on the exhibits and the collection.....you leave with a sensation of "what the heck did I just see". This is something that antiquity buffs and children alike will enjoy."
