House on the Rock, Spring Green

3.8
#2 of 8 in Things to do in Spring Green
An engineering feat, the architecture of House on the Rock integrates each room into and around a tower of rock. "The Infinity Room" extends 66 m (218 ft) without any supports underneath for its 3,000-plus windows. The house began as a vision of the owner, Alex Jordan, in 1945, and additions were made to the original house over the years. Jordan's curious collections complement the quirky architecture. You'll spot a re-creation of an early 20th-century American town, plus a giant sculpture of a sea creature. Put a coin in to hear and see the automaton room of instruments in action.

    My wife and I did Sections 1 & 2 and were amazed at all there was to see. Don't miss the Infinity room or the Streets of Yesterday. The music machines in Section 2 were just too much fun, we ran out o...  more »

    I liked the place, but won't come back ever again. We came as group of 4. Everyone found place very interesting. All of us would like to spend more time walking around, however we are allergic to dust in some shape or form. Quiet an unpleasant experience being trapped in a huge building full of dust. By the end of the trip I was itching all over rushing to get home so i can jump in the shower, unfortunately home is 3 hours away. 30$ admission is reasonable if they had someone keeping up with this place, but clearly they don't. Its funny that i talked to my friends and relatives about place being cool, but filthy and all of them had exactly same complaint on dust, even though they all visited different years, some of them going back 7 years. I really hope management takes notice of that cleans their act up, quiet literally. Once cleaned up I would love to come back and spend a day there, walking slowly reading description for everything and dropping tokens in all music machines.

    Just another 5 star satisfied customer. I wont say anything different than the other 5 star reviews, so I'll keep it short and sweet. Logan and Kyle did an impeccable job inspecting the house. They were on time, thorough, and willing to answer any questions. By coming to inspect in two's, they cut down on inspection time without sacrificing quality. The report was very clear, with pictures and great details. I would absolutely recommend using House on the Rock to friends and family.

    We visited exhibit 1 only. Overall it was nice experience, you see something different than usual. The infinity room was the most important attraction. It is worth visiting once. However, I am not a history buff to pay $15 for the same attraction.

    This place was just amazing! So many interesting things to see. Be prepared to spend some time going through it. We only went to two of the three sections and spent about 3 hours there. Would love to come back!

    Very interesting collections. The house itself is rather grim but the eclectic mix of, well, everything is mind boggling! The carousel is jaw dropping and I so enjoyed watching others come through the door and experience the carousel for the first time. The looks of amazement and delight were heart - warming. The hose on the Rock is a definite must see!
