I’m glad we went but I really think I would only do 1 section. It just got to be too much and was dark and gloomy throughout. You could tell after the first room this guy was an eccentric.

A lot of walking and stairs. Our phones showed we walked over 2 miles in the 3+ hours it took us to go through it. We definitely enjoyed it. The man sure had an imagination. Fun place.

A unique architectural dream of a house, collections of bizarre combinations, a Disney-like animatronic attempt at music, beautiful merry-go-round, and lots of dark poorly lit areas with absent descriptions of what you're actually looking at behind the glass. I would love to know...More

The House On the Rock has is an amazing museum with millions of dollars worth of collectibles on display. However you won’t want to look at them because it’s so unpleasantly musty. Also, every single automaton music player is partially broken or completely broken. With...More

Had been here as a kid, but didn't remember it so decided to go back. Toured all 3 sections, took over 3 hours. You go at your own pace so if something is too creepy (dolls, circus stuff) or boring (guns) you can breeze through...More
