Passed by and saw it from the street. Very interesting to look at. We did not get down to get any pictures. I'm not sure if you are supposed to get down. Very interesting to look at. Kids thought it was cool.

If you are in the neighborhood it will be nice to stop by the house and to check it out. If you are interested in the modern and alternate arts, you might also want to come inside ($5) for a quick visit. But I wouldn’t...More

So much fun!! We learned so much about beer cans. The story of the house is so sweet! I don’t want to wreck the story so go and see for yourself! I would recommend this tour and the tour guides were so nice! Impressed!

This is worth a visit - even if you just check it out from the pavement. Incredible to imagine the effort that went into this. You can go inside for a small fee.

You can pay a small fee to go inside, or you can admire for free from the outside.The stone steps and walkways have marbles inlaid. The house itself is gorgeous. Others may not use the word...but it's not about the beer cans and pops tops...More

Hours vary. It is worth it to drive by any time even if it is not open and get out of your car and take a look from the street. Combine this stop with a nearby stop to see Howard Hughes' grave at the Glenwood Cemetery... More
