House on the Rock.

House On The Rock
An amazing place that starts with a house on a rock, but includes sprawling galleries of music machines, a giant cannon, a sea monster, and excess amounts of everything. Roadsideamerica.com Report...

House On The Rock

This is the closest glimpse into the mind of a megalomaniac that you'll ever have. At first you'll wonder why admission is so expensive, but by the end you'll wonder why it's so cheap.

If only all of the world's megalomaniacs used their powers to build tourist attractions like House on the Rock....

Not at all what I expected. Dark and somewhat disturbing. The original owner must have been an odd fellow. Allow a few hours for this stop.

House on the Rock men's lavatory.

They sell beer halfway through! Other important notes: the whole thing is almost a three mile walk; you can spend unused tokens at the gift shop at the end; the bathrooms are also tarted up. Terrible. Awesome. Obsession and decay. Five stars.

Infinity Room.

House On The Rock

Only had time for section 1, which gives the historical background of The House On the Rock. Interesting piece of Americana, but wasn't worth the $50 we spent on our family of 5. Sections 2 and 3 must have had more interesting things to see, it should be one price for all 3 sections. Infinity room was fascinating and a bit scary because it moved, which is a part of its design.
