This place was like a slow death. It started out okay, pictures on a wall with little tid bits of info, a nice little garden followed by the infinity room. Then it just got weird. Like Alice in Wonderland weird. Who thinks of a half woman half frog and who would even enjoy that or think its neat? Then there... More

I love the House on the Rock. As a young boy I actually crawled up a ladder from the ground under the great rock formation, into the house while it was under construction. I used to lay in that little couch that's built into the limestone wall. When first built this wasn't a tourist attraction. It was a privately owned... More

Went a little out of our way to stop here on our cross country move and we're glad we did! We only got to see a couple of the "rooms", but if you can, go when you have a full day to check it all out. Totally worth the visit...if you like huge eclectic collections! Would definitely stop there again... More

Yikes! This has to be one of the STRANGEST attractions I've ever seen in my life! The first part of the tour starts out okay ... until you reach the "cave house" built by the owner as revenge toward Frank Lloyd Wright's house across the way! Anyway, the house is very claustrophobic, dark, dank, and musty. It didn't take long... More

In my 40 years on this earth I have been to House on the Rock 5 different times. If you have read the story of Alex Jordan, he would walk around the House incognito. My very first trip we had the pleasure of running into Mr. Jordan at the time, I was 10 years old and couldn't take my eyes... More

I visited this place a long time ago, but it was awesome! I liked the different rooms that showed all the different collections. A great place to go. They also have the room called "The Infinity Room" part of it stretches out over the mountains and it looks like you could see forever If you're ever in this area, this... More

This is one of those attractions that is a must see, because if the place is described to you the description will not do it justice. My wife and I travel often and rank this place as one of the best. It's kind of out in the middle of farmland Wisconsin, but when you find it you wont be disappointed.

It's eccentric. It's quirky. It has its own charm. It is definitely worth the trip. It is really a "must see" if you are in the area. Would definitely recommend it if you are in the area, even if it's a day trip for a couple hours.
