I saw house on the rock about 30 years ago an thought it was interesting at the time. My husband and I too a day trip to see it again this past summer and were disappointed. It was musty and old and a bit creepy. I'm sure there IS an audience for this type of thing (my brother in law... More

The original house is pretty cool, been going there for 20 plus years. Now they have added collections of interesting, wacky, weird stuff and I can't even describe it.

I absolutely loved visiting this place for the first time! I was mesmerized at every single little detail of every piece.. The Red Room, the Big Carousel, the musical effects, hard to put it all in writing. Alex Jordan Jr. did an exceptional job creating a world of his mind, his desire, his imagination. Dare to walk the Infinity Room,... More

Visited the week before Christmas and not many visitors which was great gave us more time to try and see as much as we could. The house is a marvel of ingenuity and filled with so many antiques, curiosities, and natural wonders. This place takes many hours to see it all.There is different types of tickets to buy, section one... More

We were there for over 4 hours. By the time we reached the refreshment center we truly needed it. There is so much to see it can be overwhelming. Children might be interested for a while but again there is just so much of everything

We enjoyed our trip to house on the rock. As a kid I thought it was "scary" but seeing it as an adult, I very much enjoyed the quirky collections and Christmas decorations. We had a wonderful time!

House is amazing, but attractions even more outstanding. Beautiful location. Infinity room really cool and very scenic. Could use a better food area. Had a great time with friends there, fun place.

This was a really strange place to visit. It was quite expensive. For our family of 4 it was over $100. It starts with a visitors center that glorifies the life of the guy who built the place. It was an odd start to the tour. Then we went into the actual house. It was interesting but quite dirty. It... More
