House On the Rock
No scanner for a while I am thinking, so we are still on our misty eyed tour through the dusty caverns of yesteryear. House on the Rock is in Wisconsin. somehere within a couple of hours of Madison I think. It has been a while. Anyway, it is a great place to check out. Basically it is a shambling museum of sorts with all manner of carzy collected stuff. Apparently an eccentric wealthy guy had a world traveling, kitsch buying penchant and since he has passed I believe that his people are continuing the tradition. You have pneumatic orchestras, every different Burma Shave roadside advertisement, dollhouses, miniatures of every description, the world's largest carousel - I think it is the largest but it is definitely the kinkiest. They have museum class artifacts from various cultures alongside scantily clad flying women mannequins. The guy had a thing for breasts. It is worth the trip if you are ever in the area.
