The House on the Rock, Spring Green

Architectural Building · Specialty Museum
An engineering feat, the architecture of The 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.

  • Incredible collections of the strangest things. All the way from dollhouses to pipe organs this place doesn't fail to capture your imagination. The architecture of the house itself is a wonder to behold. It's hard to believe that this came from the mind of one man. Be prepared to do a lot of walking up and down stairs as you work your way through the complex. Get there early so you have plenty of time to take in all the little oddities on display.
  • WOW! AMAZING! This is definitely worth seeing. We spent 5 hours exploring. Plan on spending at least 4 hours here. There is a place to get food and drinks. They also have water available in several locations. So many things to look at. The house is amazing.
