House On The Rock Attraction

Alex Jordan's retreat built atop a chimney of rock opened to the public in 1960. The retreat was only the beginning. Alex used to explain his sprawling creation of collections, displays and galleries by saying that "one thing just sort of led to another". Since those early days the world Alex Jordan created has grown far beyond the Original House and into an attraction with many buildings that contain eclectic, exotic and whimsical exhibits and displays. The House on the Rock is open year round and offers different experiences depending on the time of the year. The days of the week, hours of operation and portions of the attraction that are open vary depending on the experience.
