House on the Rock, Spring Green

(3.7/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • When traveling west - and already having Taliesen on our list of things to see - someone suggested House on the Rock. It didn't sound like anything I would go out of my way to see but I couldn't have ...  more »
  • It was our first time to HOTR and in the winter, you can only take guided tours and not all the buildings are available to explore. That was probably a good thing, because it's pretty overwhelming! To...  more »
  • I visited with my lover for a Goofy oddity trip. Although it was the odd season and only 1/3 of it was open it was a cool thing to do. Especially the infinity room built out over the gorge.  more »
  • We LOVE this place! There's always so much to see, that we find new things on every visit. There are three houses and we move pretty quickly through them, not dwelling too long on any certain thing, but usually finish in 2.5-3 hours. You could easily spend an entire day here. We've been here about 5 times and it's never been crazy busy. You'll do a good amount of walking through the three houses, although you can purchase shorter tours (house 1 & 2 only for example). For Halloween they have a special "Darkside" tour, and there's also a Christmas tour. All of those are self guided. There is no narration to describe the objects that Alex Jordan collected, so it's pretty much look at stuff and move on. If they had an audio tour, it would be even better! But you'd definitely need more time to see it all. The eclectic collection includes everything you could possibly think of. There's a gift shop at the end where you can pick up a bit of fudge made on-site, t-shirt or trinket of your choosing, but this is really a gem of a place that everyone should see once. Nothing else like it that i know of.
  • It's like nothing I've ever seen. That guy is so passionate for arts and collection.. full of imagination.. I 've read reviews before going there. But one important thing I couldn't get from reviews is that how much time it takes. It took us 4hrs.. to just go around all 3 sections of the house.. we didn't spend much time at any place..
  • Amazing! It's like someone threw up a fairy tale in the best possible way. With the world's largest carousel and an awe-inspiring whale - only two examples of thousands of individual pieces - the entire experience is well worth the admission. Family friendly with about 3-4 hours walking time for the "Ultimate" ticket for all three sections. Each section is differently themed but all equally odd. The cost was just under $30 for an adult ticket. Food concessions were placed about halfway through and free watercoolers were located throughout the entire display. The self-guided pacing of the exhibits and the option to bypass certain sections gives an easy flowing layout. Really an impressive and unusual experience, highly recommended!
  • Grossly disappointed. My fiance loves the book American Gods. So for our elopement style wedding ceremony we wanted a truly unique, memorable, and intimate place. We have been trying to contact House on the Rock for over 2 months. Emails, voice mails, even Facebook. We haven't heard back from anyone. We did get a small response back on Facebook saying for the 20 minute ceremony (no reception needed) for the 4 people including bride and groom to be taken place at either the carousel or infinity room would be $1000. I don't know if that is the flat rate or what, since no contact information was given and no one has ever called us back or returned emails. We are now giving up because of a lack of response, and gross overpricing if that is the true amount, we will be finding another place to have our elopement wedding ceremony. Terrible and heartbreaking since we had our hearts set on this place for almost a year and then when the time comes, nothing.
  • This place is absolutely stunning. It's like nothing you have ever seen before. Paying for the ultimate experience is definitely worth it! $30 allowed me 5 hours into the world of Alex Jordan Jr. You get to walk through buildings that are created and filled with everything that Alex loved. Truly amazing.
