We went through all three attractions and found all of it very interesting. We stopped for a piece of pizza (yummy) and continued on our tour. The musical instruments and carousel were my favorite. I also liked the house. I don't like heights, but enjoyed going out in the infinity room. The lighting was low in some areas, but it... More

First, since this is a long tour, I was particularly grateful for the many benches. There are so many unusual collections here, carousel animals and the carousels themselves, dolls, doll houses, millefiori paperweights, and countless absolutely beautiful stained glass lights. There are whole rooms which are elaborate music boxes with instruments and figurines which are life sized to play them.... More

All of the previous reviews mentioning a cluttered, musty experience must have been from years ago because it was clean and well lit when I visited. The only area somewhat old feeling is the main house - which hasn't been updated since it was built in the '40s. The entire experience is worth the price - it keeps ramping up... More

If you are into the weird and unusual - visit the House on the Rock. The views from the infinity room were beautiful. If you have any claustrophobic tendencies this is not the place to visit.

They need to think of the customer more,so they might give more favorable reviews . There needs to be a place where the people can take a break outside& then return to the tour.It is NOT enough to wait til you see the house or visa verse. The whole experience would be a whole lot more enjoyable for all. Charles... More

I used to take 5th grade classes to this place just so that they could experience the miniature houses after we had studied architecture. That wowed them as did the train displays, world's largest carousel, the guns (including one hidden in a wooden leg), cash registers, and the "Infinity Room" which has to be experienced to be believed. The list... More

I love this place and have gone back every 4/5 years since I was 10 (I am now 40). Here is a test to figure out if the HOTR is for you: True or False: I would rather drive 30 miles out of my way to see 1,000 mostly well done fake firearms in a unique and colorful setting than... More

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
