“It;s a house. Covered in drink paraphernalia.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

I've seen glass bottle houses that were more intricately designed. But it wasn't bad, either. If there were anything else in the area that drew my attention, I might be inclined to go out that way again. But it was just average. No real thrill for me. Kudos to the conservationists, though. Better than having all that in the landfill. Right?

“Eclectic”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012 via mobile

The value is in the exterior of the house. Don't know that the admission fee is worth the $2 and definitely don't think guided tour would be worth it.

“Quirky in Houston”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

My friend and I had a good time taking the kiddos! They loved looking at the whole house. I too found it fun and interesting. The neighborhood it is in is also very neat.

“very unique! Unlike anything I had ever seen before.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

The first time i went it was closed for renovations. Wemt back with a group of teachers and it was fun. Someone had too much time on their hands through the years to create this!
