I liked this metal sculpture so I took a pic or two of it while walking by.
Here is another part of the 'circus' tribute room without flash.
Fancy gigantic rooms with life size circus mannequins? Well you have come to the right place. Space for taking pictures is always a problem here as they just jam more than should be legally allowed in every single room.
Another massive clock inside the same room as the glass orbs and organs. I believe those lion statues are 1:1 scale.
A massive clock inside the room with the glass orbs and organs. I liked the mood of this flashless pic that I braced against something so it didn't hit the trashcan.
Yes, all of those animals are big enough to ride. This is inside a room.
One of the many (dozens?) of detailed ship models in the 'sea room' or whatever it is officially called.
There is also a giant whale in the same 'room' as the ship models and giant squid. The tiny bird you see in the lower left is a full size gull model for reference.
Did I mention that the squid was very large?
Yes they have a giant squid in one of the rooms. The railings you see are 2-2.5 feet tall and the ship models are some of the largest I have seen.
The official visitor center area taken from afar.
In the 'room' with the massive organs and glass bulbs, there are also trees and some sort of Ode to IBM Selectric typewriters...
Here is said mortar again. If you are bad, they sit you on the bench in front of it and point the mortar down.
Something about this mortar near the gift shop drew my attention. So you will see it again. :)
Have a neighbor that is giving you troubles? Well here is a very large cannon or flamethrower or some such device with some equally huge chains to keep anyone from hauling it away in the back of their... umm... oversized flatbed semi or train or something equally huge.
Here is a vertical pic of the glass orbs above the same organ. The ceiling goes up quite a bit beyond this.
The 'rooms' in the house on the rock are almost too big to comprehend. This is a very small part of a room that had giant blown glass balls along with the most meanacing phantom of the opera organs known to man. The monitors in the organ are probably 20 inch CRTs to give you some idea of the scale.
Faux gothic catherdrals your cup o tea? Well you can find a few scale models of some here too.
No I am not using a telescope to spy on my neighbor's here. This is one of over a hundred doll houses that were either collected or created by the people at House on the Rock.
I don't have a doll house fetish, at least that I am aware of. House on the Rock contains massive collections of things and one of those collections are doll houses. They are almost all behind glass with poor lighting but here is one of the 100+ that are there.
