Alex Jordan’s awesome retreat built atop a chimney of rock opened to the public in 1960. The retreat was only the beginning. Alex used to explain his sprawling creation of collections, displays and galleries by saying that “one thing just sort of led to another.” On our self-guided tour you will explore some of the most unique collections including the world’s largest carousel, a 200′ sea creature, automated music machines and much more.

There is no higher priority than the health and safety of our team members and guests. Wisconsin Governor Evers signed Emergency Order #12 – Safer At Home Order which goes into effect at 8 am Wednesday, March 25, 2020 and remains in effect until 8 am Friday, April 24, 2020. At this time we are unsure whether we will be able to re-open on Friday, April 24, 2020 or if other restrictions will be in place at that time.  We are actively monitoring the situation and will post updates on our website.  We are looking forward to welcoming you again soon.  In the meantime, stay safe and healthy.
