The House on the Rock

One of Wisconsin's most notorious destinations and just an hour or so west of Verona, you'll want to save 3-5 hours to tour this attraction. The House on the Rock offers 3 seperate tours which you can choose to do one at a time, or consecutively. Be warned, some people might find this attraction to be a little scary and disturbing! Vast collections of dolls, ancient robotic music machines, a giant merry-go-round (no, you can't ride it), an enormous room of organs (the musical kind!), a 4 story tall sculpture of a whale and squid fighting are just some of the things you can expect to find at House on the Rock. Everyone should go at least once!
