House on the Rock, Spring Green

3.8
#2 of 11 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.

  • This place is definitely a “different” place! It is sure to get all your senses going and may stimulate your mind a little to much. Mr. Jordan was for sure a very unique man. There was so much to see at this place and it was all very interesting. If you have kids I wouldn’t plan on reading much of anything, especially if you go on the ultimate tour(do all three sections), b/c it definitely makes for a long day. There is so much to see and experience at House on the Rock. They have two really nice little restaurants within and a few places to get a sip of water as well.
  • A truly memorable, fantastic, fanciful destination that is sure to strike the fancy of anyone and everyone alike. No matter your interest or hobby, your favorite style or era... You are undoubtedly promised a collection you'll find truly stroking. House On The Rock delivers as a perfect, reasonably priced attraction for the young and old alike, be it on your own or entertaining a crowd this is the place for you. Just be sure to bring your walking shoes and an open mind as this amazing destination earns it's way into your heart. Consider staying at the Inn for added savings and interesting sights!
  • We decided to go back for our fourth trip here. We went during the week off season and it was great. We were able to enjoy all the old and new exhibits without the crowds. It amazes us how much information in each exhibit is found. I am sure everyone would find this place interesting and fun.
  • I enjoyed the House part of the attraction, the rest that is housed in other buildings was interesting yet a bit overwhelming. If you do the entire self guided tour, wear good shoes, bring water, prepare to spend 4 hours mostly indoors. I am in awe that this house was built, then I'm in awe (and sort of curious why) that the rest was built/collected. To say that the collections are a 'feast for the eyes' would be an understatement. The house though is neat. Don't miss going into the bathroom (at least the women's) in the main area of the building (where you get the tickets).
  • This place is a hidden Jewel! It has everything from carousels two playing pianos millions of collectibles. This place is better than the circus. I guarantee you right now this is the greatest show on Earth. I think I could go through 100 * and still never see it all. There's so much to see here this place is totally amazing. I would recommend this for almost all ages the best for ages 7 and up.
