Amazing collection and vision from an extraordinary man. This area of Wisconsin is absolutely beautiful and worth the trip itself.

My husband and I took our kids (10 & 15) here. I was the only one who had been here before. My husband about fell over when he found out it was almost $100 for the four of us and we would be there for 3 hours. It is really an interesting place and has a ton to look at.... More

We were amazed at the things that were built and collected by Alex Jordan. The whole experience was so unique, different than anything we have seen before. The house itself was phenominal, but as we toured each section, we could not believe all the things he collected. To see it all, there is a lot of walking and you need... More

We have been considering stopping here for the past couple years and this was the year we made a point of it. What a fun day. We bought the everything tour. First and foremost be prepared to walk if you do this - however there are a lot of places to sit and rest if you are so inclined. I... More

Such an interesting place. This place is at once fun to tour as a home built in a tsrange way, right down to the furnishings, to a museum full of artifacts ranging from automobiles, to nautical treasures to musical instruments.

We visited on a Wednesday and spent 3 hours walking without finishing the third attraction - we were just too tired! The Music machines are fantastic and generally awesome in size and sound. The Mikado is truly remarkable. The carousel is a wonder. I recommend you get the book in the gift shop because you won't be able to remember... More

I found this place to be the most interesting place I have seen in a long time. The tour seems to go on forever and ever and each new room holds collections like you would not believe! The musical machines are fabulous and very entertaining. This is a place I would highly recommend for anyone traveling to this area. You... More

Its an amazing attraction and definitely worth visiting the rooms are incredible especially the carousel room and the infinity room but it will take up most of your day so plan at least 4 hours and it is A LOT of walking

Imagine Ripley's Believe It or Not, unique museum, collectors dream (or nightmare), beautiful view every direction. There is so much to see your mind will be swimming and feet sore. Some exhibits have a layer of dust. Plenty of buttons to push, but not all in working condition. For example, if you love dollhouses, you could spend an hour looking... More

We visited on a weekday morning. Not a lot of patrons but not empty either. This was the first visit we made in years so we thought we knew what to expect. The carrosel was magnificent, but many of the other exhibits hadn't seen maintainance since out last visit, music not working and way out of tune. Alex Jordan's dream... More
