One of the great things about being an animator is working with other animators. Being a rather special breed, the range of topics discussed and life experiences are all over the place. Just recently my buddy Rob mentioned a place he had visited in Wisconsin called The House on the Rock that has sparked my interest. His description sounded like something from one of my fever dreams.
I’ve taken the over-view and photos from their website to give you a taste, but you should really visit the site to see the scope of this thing: http://houseontherock.com/index.htm
Now I have to think of a reason to go to Wisconsin so I can see it myself.
The House on the Rock is the grand vision of Alex Jordan, who believed that sights and sounds were the most effective means of stimulating the senses. He wanted guests to question his creation, to come to their own conclusions and to turn his world of dreams into their own. The Attraction has room after room of some of the world's most unique and eclectic collections which has amazed thousands of visitors each year.
