House on the Rock Attraction
An attraction with some of the world’s most unique collections including the world’s largest carousel, a 200′ sea creature, a million piece circus, automated music machines and much more.
The House on the Rock began in 1945 when a man named Alex Jordan had a towering goal: to build a retreat as awe-inspiring as the view from the rock upon which the House would eventually be built. What took shape on and around Deer Shelter Rock is a truly remarkable achievement. The House was only the beginning. In the years that followed, Alex expanded his vision beyond the House and collected and built on a massive scale. In the end he had created the world-renowned attraction known as The House on the Rock.
Since those early days, the world Alex Jordan created has grown far beyond the original house and into an attraction with many buildings, exhibits and collections.The House on the Rock is open year round and offers different experiences depending on the time of year. The days of week, hours of operation and portions of the tour that are open vary depending on the experience.
