Overview
Alex Jordan's remarkable retreat built atop a chimney of rock opened to the public in 1960. The retreat known as The House On The Rock, was only the beginning. In the years that followed, Alex expanded his vision beyond the house and collected and built on a massive scale creating an attraction with some of the world's most unique collections. You'll see a 200' sea creature, maritime displays with intricate model ships and Titanic memorabilia, a huge steam engine, a mechanical calliope, an American small town street of yesteryear, a Japanese garden, a million piece miniature circus, automated music machines and much more at The House On The Rock Wisconsin Dells.
 
Convention Overview
The awe-inspiring array of sights, sounds and sensations. Experience such fantasies as the world's largest carousel, a 200-ft long see creature and the gravity defying Infinity Room which extends an unsupported 218 ft above the valley floor.

    The House on the Rock Stories
    05/27/2013Our daughter Amy loved the House on the Rock with all her heart. She visited many times and each time discovered something different to enjoy and talk about. She thought it was the most wonderful place she had ever visited. Our daughter passed away almost five years ago and among her belongings, I am still finding souvenirs she had purchased at the gift shop, books, postcards ,whatever she could find to remember her favorite place. Amy was only 31years when she left us and I sometimes feel her spirit still visits this special place she held so dear. Sometime when your'e visiting The House on the Rock, please say hello Amy, she just may be there in spirit that day. This is from a poem I wrote for Amy: House on the Rock, a place I cherished, I could spend days and hours there. I could take in the sights and sounds and be myself without a care. And in this earthly place I loved, my spirit can forever and freely soar. Because epilepsy has left me now and my seizures are never more.

    09/07/2012Visited the "House" in the late 90's with my mom-in-law & my son. We were in awe of the place. We all wished Grandpa was alive to see it. It was fantastic. The collections of stained glass windows, dolls, houses, etc. made our eyes just pop. The carousel was, by far, the best thing any of us had ever seen. Can't wait to get back to see it again if for no other reason but to see what else has been added. Again, it's a fantastic place to visit. Have the book showing some of the collections and everyone who looked at it is flabbergasted by all they see. Thank you for still being there. Can't wait to get back.

    07/02/2011Went to house on school field trip many years ago when I lived with parents in Madison. It was AWESOME! From walking up through the hallways to the ginormous carousel. Now I live in south Texas and planning a trip to the house next summer with my family. Its the best.

    02/21/2009We took our grown and still at home children to the Dells back in the 90's and one day it rained so not too much to do. Our son suggested we go to the House on the Rock and I didn't want to but went along anyway. When we got there it was the neatest thing - rain and thunder and lightening as we approached the house with I think some weird gargoyles on the outside - what an adventure we had that day!! It was so worth the effort to get there and I have gone back with other people several times but that rainy day was the best.
