We stopped here after spending a couple days at Glacier and Kalispell. It has a great little gift shop and the guide is full of all sorts of interesting information. It really does make you think twice about reality! Really unique.

At the beginning of the tour, you are given a marble as your ticket to admittance. Hold on tight! The house of mystery is situated in the middle of a guided tour. The tour is very informative and interactive. Be prepared for some mind warping....More

This was mostly surprisingly enjoyable. Lots of interesting visual illusions, which the guide kept relating to "quantum physics," a field he didn't seem to understand at all, but it was entertaining. It's kind of what you might expect of a vortex. If you're into the...More

We have been here one other time 7 years ago, and wanted to return since the kids were older. So disappointing as we had a different guide than Joe. Definitely try and be on Joe's tours, he makes everyone comfortable and was at least more...More

So, while our tour guide was less than enthusiastic and borderline rude, we enjoyed our visit. The house alone was entertaining enough for the kids. With a more convincing and/or enthusiastic guide and it would have been 4 stars.

A lot like the fun house at old time amusement parks in the old days. Grounds are well kept. Guide was very nice and informative. Kinda fun but not worth a special trip. Price is fair.

Good place to take kids when the weather is cool. Fun and different and at $10.00, what's Not to like!

Beautiful setting but a little boring. The tilted house was fun though, and the owners are very nice folks.

There is not a lot of walking, however, the walking you do have to do is downhill and the house you stand in is slanted, on a hill, making it difficult to stand up for anyone with good knees!

It's at 7800 Hwy 2 East, on the left side of the road as you leave Columbia Falls. Easily visible from the highway.
